Stepping Stone Christie Downs Childcare & Early Development Centre provides a child-focused curriculum, based around the Early Years Learning Framework. Our friendly and professional team of educators are dedicated to providing your child with quality care in a safe and caring environment. Our unique programs are in place to support your child to develop to their maximum potential in all areas including social, emotional, moral, cognitive and physical growth.

Meals are provided daily for your child to enjoy. The food is prepared and cooked daily by a qualified chef using our garden’s freshest produce. The menu is altered daily so that your child can experience various tastes and textures.

Recycling is embedded into the program with composting being part of our daily routine. Children have the opportunity to learn and discover how to care for worms and, in the bigger picture, our environment.

We have also been fortunate enough to build and maintain a relationship with Christie Downs kindergarten. We ensure that your child attends all sessions throughout the week in order to prepare them for their transition into school.

In order to effectively communicate with each individual family, monthly newsletters are given out keeping families informed and up to date with changes and exciting upcoming events. The team of qualified educators are dedicated to proving your child with quality care in a safe and secure environment.


Meet the Centre Director

Hi my name is Erica Walker and I am your Centre Director here at Stepping Stone Christie Downs!

I have now been working within the childcare industry for the past 10 years and believe that providing a loving, nurturing, secure, anti-bias and encouraging environment for children to develop learn and grow will encourage children to become the unique individuals that they are meant to be.

Children learn through play, so the child’s environment is the core foundation of their development. I believe that by providing a ‘home like’ environment that is warm and welcoming, where children can learn and explore within a secure setting, will assist each child to develop their own individual characteristics and personalities that enables them to actively engage within our community.

I look forward to providing your child with a stimulating environment and forming long lasting relationships with both you and your child.
