At Stepping Stone RAH we are fortunate to be in a very unique and rare facility, providing the RAH staff and local community a new centre that offers spectacular views of the city.

Our centre is in the heart of the Adelaide city allowing our children to be able to experience many educational opportunities within the community. The children regularly go on local walks and actively participate in the local activities that the city provides.

Our facilities consist of 5 main rooms and one large outdoor place space that all ages share. Providing a focus on a natural outdoor learning space within a building site. We offer a number of veggie patches, fruit trees, a worm farm and natural resources. The children are able to look out at the local surroundings using our circular peep holes that are positioned along the wall of the outside yard.

We believe Stepping Stone RAH offers a place for a positive learning environment for children to develop and grow at their own pace. Allowing children and families to feel like they are part of our extended family and create life long memories.

As a company our educators endeavour to reflect on their practices for continued growth so that we are a place of movement. Offering our families quality education and care and a team that is highly trained and passionate for Early Childhood Education.

Meet the Centre Director

Sarah - Director

Hi, my name is Sarah and welcome to Stepping Stone RAH Childcare & Early Development. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you all a little about myself. Since a little girl it was evident that working with children was something I would do and this was fulfilled when I commenced working in child care back in 1998. I worked as an assistant and team leader whilst completing both my Diploma and Advanced Diploma. From a little centre in Littlehampton I gained valuable skills and knowledge and commenced a role as an Assistant Director. Before my dream of being a Centre Director became a reality, I become a mum to my now 12 year old boy Zander.

I am now proud to be the Centre Director here at Stepping Stone RAH and lead this amazing team. Our centre offers a warm, welcoming environment for all families and their children. We take particular pride in making our centre a safe and friendly place in which children can be stimulated and learn through play as they grow and develop. Our staff team are enthusiastic, passionate and committed to providing your children with the best possible care.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you through our remarkable centre!
