Stepping Stones Child Care Centre
Stepping Stones Child Care Centres are child focused, family orientated and provide purpose built facilities that lifts the bar on quality care and education for children in our Canberra and Victorian Centres.
We commenced operation at our Bonython and Symonston (Canberra) locations in November 2006 and Ocean Grove (Victoria) in January 2009.
We are committed and dedicated to the continuous professional development of our staff. Our organisation recognises the importance of each individual staff member's knowledge, skills and dedication to their profession.
Our vision at Stepping Stones Child Care Centres
To be an innovative, quality children's service that plays an active part in our local community and is a happy place for children to be. We aim to provide a child care service that encourages and supports parental and community involvement. With the development of innovative educational programs, children have the opportunity to learn and develop in a nurturing, secure and trusting environment.
Fiona O'Donnell, owner of Stepping Stones Child Care Centre (ACT) Pty Ltd, specialises in owning & operating child care centres. Fiona's passion & wealth of experience in offering high standards of care is evident in her building fabulous Centre's, recruiting high quality staff & equipping the services with first class facilities to create a stimulating environment for children to grow & develop.
Stepping Stones is a Long Day Care service that is licensed to care for 67-95 children per day. There are different class groups across the centre that assists us in caring for each individual child's developmental needs. The classrooms are grouped in the developmental age groups and allows for flexibility within the Centre to ensure each child's needs are met.
Our outdoor play areas are equipped with high quality equipment (that meet Australian Safety Standards) that encourages children's interests and development. There is a garden that allows us to grow some of our own fruits and vegetables and encourages children to investigate and learn about where some of the food we eat comes from and water conservation.
7:30am - 6pm.
It is important that the children receive enough food and nutrients throughout the day to support their growth and activity levels. At Stepping Stones Child Care Centres we feel that it is our responsibility to ensure that each child receives an adequate amount of nutritious foods whilst in our care.
Stepping Stones Child Care Centres have developed nutritious seasonal menus, in consultation with Nutrition Australia to ensure that each individual child receives their daily nutritional requirements.
