Stepping Stone Preschool and Day Care center has limited center closings; these include: New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after Thanksgiving and Christmas day. We close at 3 pm on New Years Eve and Christmas Eve.
Stepping Stone Preschool and Day Care center also closes for weather when North Colonie School District closes for weather. If North Colonie is delayed for a weather incident we are also delayed. Therefore, if North Coloinie is delayed 2 hours we will open 2 hours late from our opening time of 7am, so the center would be open at 9am. We are listed on the school closing network on tv; we are listed as Stepping Stone Preschool & DCC (Albany). The tv notification will be for closing and delays.
If North Colonie decides to close early because of a weather incident we will make that determination on our own. We will call families if we decide to close early. Please understand that although we do not have buses to worry about we do have many staff who unlike many families do not have 4 wheel drive vehicles or even personal transportation and when weather is extreme we have to insure that everyone is safe.
