Meet the centre director

Sharon - director

Welcome to Stepping Stone Kidman Park Childcare & Early Development Centre. My name is Sharon Kennerdale; I would like to take this opportunity to share a little information about myself. I have over 20 years experience working in child care. I have been involved in the management of Early Years settings since April 1997, in the UK. This, together with my personal life as a wife and parent of three children, has enhanced my belief in making a positive difference in the lives of children and families.

I moved to Adelaide South Australia with my family in July 2007 and started employment with Stepping Stone (SA) within two weeks of arriving in the country. I look forward to sharing the knowledge and experience I have gained over the past years, with the children, parents and staff.

This Centre takes pride offering a safe, warm, stimulating and welcoming environment where children are encouraged to have fun, explore, take initiatives and are involved in making decisions about their own learning.

I consider it a privilege to manage a staff team who share my passion in building and developing partnerships with our families. In choosing this Centre, you entrust your child to us and therefore have a right to know about and to influence the kind of care that your child receives. We would like to encourage you to come and visit our centre and talk with us about your requirements.
