Overview

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.
