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

Welcome to Stepping Stone Lockleys Childcare & Early Development Centre. My name is Bianca. I have been in the childcare sector for the past 12 years and am also a mum of a young boy. I commenced my employment with Stepping Stone (SA) in 2007 in the capacity of an educator. During this time I progressed into a leading educator role working across different age groups. I have also taken on mentoring roles and have held the position of Educational Leader and Assistant Director. At Stepping Stone Lockleys our educators will ensure that you and your child are supported and that you feel like an extended part of the family. We offer a safe, caring and nurturing environment - a home away from home. We welcome you to visit us & look through our wonderful Centre.
