Meet the Centre Director

Hayley - Director

Hello, my name is Hayley and I am the Centre Director at Stepping Stone Evanston. I have been in early education and care for a little over sixteen years and have enjoyed every minute. Beginning my career as an unqualified assistant, I studied my Diploma which lead me to working in different roles until I became the Centre Director here at Evanston. I have been with Stepping Stone (SA) since the very beginning when we opened our first Centre back in February 2007 and am really enjoying the journey. I am happily married with two children who are both now adults and moving forward with their own career paths.

Based on my own values, our Centre offers a warm and welcoming environment for all families and their children, taking particular pride in making our centre not only safe and friendly but also bright and beautiful. Our team of passionate Educators are very firm believers in the early years and know how important it is that children gain the right start in education and care.

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