Hear from families who have attended our Allenby Gardens childcare centre...

My daughter has been going to Stepping Stone Allenby Gardens for over a year and I couldn’t be more happy with their service. All the staff are friendly, caring, and seem genuinely happy to be working there. I think every mum has those moments of guilt when working about leaving their children in child care, but I have peace of mind with my daughter at Allenby Gardens Stepping Stone. She loves going there, has great fun every day and always has a huge smile on her face at pick up time. I can not recommended them highly enough!

My 2 kids have been at Stepping Stone Allenby Gardens for over 2 years. During that time the whole family has built a strong bond with the staff and we are confident that they have the best interests of our kids (and all kids) at heart.

Meet the Centre Director

Hello, my name is Lauren and I am the Centre Director here at Stepping Stone Allenby Gardens.

I have worked in the childcare industry since 2010, and in that time I have had the opportunity to work in many roles from starting as an educator, I was then given the opportunity to develop and grow in many other roles such as team leader, assistant director to centre director.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, dabbling in photography, watching the footy, exploring new places and spending quality time with my family and friends.

My team and I are looking forward to working in partnership with you and your family to provide happy, caring and nurturing environments where your children can feel safe, secure and supported through their learning journey. We believe that all children are unique individuals and learn at their own pace, so have tailored environments and experiences that drive and support their development.

We look forward to meeting you, showing you through our beautiful centre and having you join our Allenby Gardens family.
