Albany -- Stepping Stones, the agency that sponsored Saturday's Internet safety classes, wants the public to know more about the services they provide.

The 10 year old organization works as an advocate for child safety.

They provide free child care referrals to parents as well as work with childcare providers to make sure they are properly trained.

"We get in and access their programs to determine the level of quality and do what we can to improve that quality, training and educating the staff," says Soraya Kimbrel director of Stepping Stones.

Stepping stones services 14 South Georgia counties and is based in Albany.
