Day Care Program

At Stepping Stones we aim to provide high quality Early Learning & Child Care. We employ qualified Early Childhood Educators that provide the children with ongoing opportunities to develop their abilities. Each child will have the chance to explore through play the things that interest them. Emerging skills will be supported through a curriculum that is developed through the Educators observations of the children. Lots of focus will be on literacy, science, mathematics and physical development presented in a playful, engaging format.

We believe in working with children, families and community agencies to effectively facilitate positive learning, which will allow individuals the opportunity to grow in every area of their development. We believe that all children and families need to be valued, respected and treated with kindness and compassion in all situations.
