At Stepping Stone Aberfoyle Park Childcare & Early Development Centre we have 6 spacious rooms filled with educational resources encouraging a learning through play environment.

We have a large nature yard ready for children to explore their natural environment that is filled with wooden logs, bench seats, native plants and large gumtrees which attract local native animals such as koalas and kookaburras.

We are a Sun Smart Centre, but also encourage children to bring their gumboots and raincoats during the winter months to experience the wet weather by splashing in puddles and stomping in mud.

Our curriculum is created around 4 important aspects, these are the child’s interests, parent input, community events and intentional teaching lead by our Educators and based on the Early Years Learning Framework.

Healthy food is enjoyed daily by the children which is cook fresh on site by our Cook. The menu is simple yet varied, encouraging the discovery of different tastes and textures. It is a four week rotating menu which changes seasonally.

Meet the Centre Director


Hello my name is Leonie Inns and I am the Centre Director here at Stepping Stone Aberfoyle Park. I started my career in the OHSC sector before moving over to Early Education and Care where I have worked for Stepping Stone (SA) for the last six and a half years. I am married with two grown up daughters.

I believe that children learn through play whilst exploring their world and having fun. I am proud to lead a team of passionate Educators who are committed to providing an environment which your child can grow, explore and reach their potential as individuals.

We would love to meet you and your child, so please come visit our remarkable centre.
