At Stepping Stone Allenby Gardens we are a 70 place centre with an emphasis on family and community connections.

We are a purpose built centre with neutral colour tones which promotes a richer learning experience.  We have 5 spacious, light filled and thought provoking learning areas that are intentionally set up to support our flexible, child lead curriculum.

We have an exceptional team of staff that all strive for excellence and work towards a common goal of providing a stimulating environment to support the children’s journey of knowledge and understanding the world that surrounds them.

Our 3 large outdoor areas have been designed to invoke curiosity, exploration and enjoyment, we also have an array of inter-changeable gross motor equipment which can be set up to challenge all children in their physical development.

Stepping Stone Allenby Gardens will be a place of support to for all children and families on their journey of discovery.  A place for exploration, creating new relationships, enriching play experiences and a place where many memories will be made.

Meet the Centre Director

My name is Amira Healy and I am the Centre Director here at Stepping Stone Allenby Gardens. I have over 6 years’ experience as an educator working in the early childhood education and care sector. I am married and have three children who keep me on my toes most of the time. I have been with the Stepping Stone (SA) family since 2018 which is when I contributed in opening the Allenby Gardens centre! During this time I have had the opportunity to advance; from Leading Educator to Assistant Director to now Centre Director. In my spare time I love the company of family and friends, having a good laugh and eating great food. I am a huge animal lover with three dogs, two cats and a lizard to call my own.

Our beautiful centre offers a warm, welcoming environment for all families and their children. We offer a range of different environments and experiences that will stimulate and enrich your children as they learn, grow and develop all through play. Our staff team are passionate, enthusiastic and committed to providing your child the best possible care.

We look forward to meeting you and showing you what our remarkable centre has to offer!
