New Child Care Package for Families

From 2 July 2018, Australia will have a new child care package. Under the new package, the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) will replace the existing Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate.  CCS will be the main way the Government assists families with their child care fees.

Please follow the links below for more information and to see how these changes may affect you.

Meet the Centre Director

Hi, my name is Bronwyn Baron and I am the centre director at Stepping Stone(SA) Hewett.

I have been very lucky to be able to have worked with Stepping Stone(SA) since 2008, where I was first employed as Assistant Director.

I would describe myself as very easy going and love being outside, especially with my family, going to my son’s football games, camping and fishing.

At our centre we pride ourselves on providing a nurturing and safe environment where children are able to grow, explore and reach their potential as individuals with the help of our dedicated and passionate educators

My team and I look forward to meeting you and showing you through our remarkable centre. Thanks,
Bronwyn Baron
