Our Purpose

Stepping Stone Pediatric Physical Therapy provides physical therapy services and resources for infant and school-aged children with physical and/or developmental challenges in their movement, play, learning, attention and behaviour.  We are a private provider of paediatric therapy in Kemptville, Ontario.

As pediatric therapists, we also understand the importance of good quality, trustworthy resources and information for parents, teachers, and caregivers and are dedicated to providing tips, materials and workshops to help with each step of a child’s developmental lifespan.

Our Approach

Working closely with parents, caregivers, teachers and other medical & health professionals, our pediatric therapists help children toward their optimal physical health, building strong bodies and minds through play.

Founded by Kimberley Smalridge in 2013, Stepping Stone Pediatric Physical Therapy now operates as a proud partner of Kemptville Kids Pediatric Therapy Services at 200 Prescott Street, Kemptville, just 5 minutes from the 416.
