At Stepping Stone Aberfoyle Park Childcare & Early Development Centre we have 6 spacious rooms filled with educational resources encouraging a learning through play environment.

We have a large nature yard ready for your children to explore their natural environment that is filled with wooden logs, bench seats, native plants and large gumtrees which attract local native animals such as koalas and kookaburras.

We are a Sun Smart Centre, but also encourage children to bring gumboots and rain coats during wet weather seasons to explore wet weather through splashing in puddles and stomping in mud.

Our curriculum is created around 4 important aspects, these are the child’s interests, parent input, community events/ holidays and intentional teaching lead by the educators, based on the Early Years Learning Framework.

Healthy food is enjoyed daily by the children. Our menu is simple yet varied encouraging the discovery of different tastes and textures, it is a 4 week rotating menu which then changes seasonally.

Bianca - director

Welcome to Stepping Stone Lockleys Childcare & Early Development Centre. My name is Bianca. I have been in the childcare sector for the past 12 years and am also a mum of a young boy. I commenced my employment with Stepping Stone (SA) in 2007 in the capacity of an educator. During this time I progressed into a leading educator role working across different age groups. I have also taken on mentoring roles and have held the position of Educational Leader and Assistant Director. At Stepping Stone Lockleys our educators will ensure that you and your child are supported and that you feel like an extended part of the family. We offer a safe, caring and nurturing environment – a home away from home. We welcome you to visit us & look through our wonderful Centre.
