A Message to Stepping Stones Families and Staff

We know that the recently announced closing of the Rochester-area Stepping Stones Learning Center (not affiliated with Hillside’s Stepping Stones program in Fulton, NY) will leave many families without immediate educational supports for their children, and create unexpected challenges for many skilled professionals in this essential field.

If you are exploring next steps for your preschool child, please consider Hillside. We offer Universal Pre-K for general education students. If interested, please call 585-256-7500.

We also have the Hillside Crestwood Therapeutic Education Center, 2077 Scottsville Road. We are a member of the non-district 853 school system, dedicated to providing developmentally appropriate special education programming from compassionate and innovative certified teachers and teaching assistants. Guided by New York State standards and each child’s individual education program (IEP), our lesson plans ensure that each child’s social, emotional, developmental and academic abilities are addressed and enhanced. If you are interested, please contact the Committee on Special Education in your child’s home school district for a referral.

We also encourage Stepping Stones’ related services staff in particular to visit www.hillside.com/work to review the range of employment opportunities at Hillside. If you have any employment-related questions, please contact Jessica Lord at jlord@hillside.com.
