Meet the Centre Director

Hello, my name is Emilie Martin and I am the Centre Director here at Stepping Stone Marden.

I have been involved in early childhood education since 2014, working in various roles and gaining valuable knowledge and experience along the way. My career started as an educator in OSHC before I began my remarkable journey with Stepping Stone (SA) in 2016 as an educator while completing my Diploma in early childhood. In 2019 I was given the opportunity to step up into the Centre Director role.

The position of Centre Director is an opportunity that I have embraced with enthusiasm.

Our centre provides such unique facilities that enhance and create opportunities for each child to explore and discover their world and be given the opportunity to develop, thrive and become confident involved learners. We believe in a holistic approach to our education and care program.

I am passionate about providing the best quality care for our children and families along with building relationship with our local community.

On behalf of myself and our dedicated team of educators, we look forward to meeting you and your family and showing you around our remarkable centre.
