About Us

Stepping Stone has come a long way since its creation as a project of the Rotary Club of Makati in the early 1970's. Back then, the goal was to provide education for indigent children from across the street from where the Rotary building was and still is located.


Welcome to Stepping Stone

​Our school cares for special children with intellectual disabilities. We started out as a project of the Rotary Club of Makati to assist an impoverished neighborhood in Makati. After more than 46 years, we are now extending our experience to a bigger school in Parañaque.

We take in children from all sectors. We employ a socialized tuition fee where affording students pay in full and scholarships are available for those who cannot. Our coordination with various schools such as University of Sto. Tomas, University of Makati, De La Salle University, College of St. Benilde, Asia - Pacific College, De La Salle University Health Sciences Institute continuously improves our individualized program.

International organizations such as US Peace Corps, Council for Exceptional Children keep us abreast of state-of-the-art techniques. We are supported by several local groups like Rotary Clubs, Concepcion Industries, American Wire and Cable, Metro Bank, HMR and International Organizations like Lloyd George Asia Foundation, Telstra, Starkey and other generous private individuals.

For those who cannot be mainstreamed in regular schools, we offer TESDA Accredited Training Program such as Barista, Bread & Pastry, Cookery and Housekeeping. We also offer Laundry and Water Refilling Services using safe modern equipment. More vocational courses are line-up.

The growing incidence of intellectual disabilities among children compelled us to open a larger facility in Parañaque. Our one-hectare campus has provisions for sports, a theater, a multi-faith prayer room, and, later on, residential boarding. We now offer alternative therapies such as music, visual arts, dance and drama classes. We also encourage associations such as the Down Syndrome Society, Autism Society of the Philippines and other organization concerned with intellectual disabilities to set up their central offices at our premises for better coordination.​

All these are intended to assist a sector that suffers from benign neglect. While they are mostly showered with love and attention, our society consigns them to a life of helpless dependence for the rest of their lives.


Our aim is to change this mindset to prove that a combination of empathy, education and training can open up opportunities to allow these children to learn to fend for themselves and contribute to the well - being of society.

We hope you can join us in this effort.


Stepping Stone is a learning institution for individuals with special learning needs.


We offer three educational program as well as physical, occupational and speech therapy.


Our accomplishments so far, and our plans and projects for the school.


 Support the school through sponsorships, in kind donations & volunteer services.
