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.

 Stepping Stone Munno Para Childcare & Early Learning Development Centre provides an environment where children can come to not only have fun but are cared for and educated in a friendly and professional environment. Children are educated based on a child-initiated curriculum using the Early Years Learning Framework, implemented by our team of professional educators.

Our centre has an excellent working relationship with the local school and preschool, often meeting with educators to discuss programs and upcoming events.

We have many centre events where families are encouraged to participate such as grandparent’s day, Christmas parties and many others.

We have vegetable gardens in our yards, which our children are able to tend to and look after and herbs, which our cook uses in her menu. Our cook provides nutritious and appealing meals which the children enjoy. Our cook also spends time with the children, engaging with, tending to our garden and providing exciting cooking experiences.

Our centre is bright and innovative with gorgeous displays throughout the centre of children’s artwork and group projects.
