Hear from families who have attended our Marden childcare centre...

We have sent all 3 of our children to Stepping Stone Marden, and over the past 5 years they have had amazing care, growth and support during that time. The educators and staff are all just lovely and our children have all formed very special bonds with them over the years. We would highly recommend anyone to Stepping Stone Marden.

Educators are great at communicating regularly and working through milestones and challenges has been very smooth with them! They are truly great people! They have been very supportive to our family and our child feels safe, cared for, motivated to learn and loved here.

Marden Childcare Centre is an extended part of not only our child’s family but our own as well. Our girls have loved all their teachers at the centre. And we love how welcoming and loving the teachers are to make our girls feel safe and comfortable. Couldn’t imagine having them at any other centre. Our child has blossomed in her learning these past few months especially and it is incredible to see how much she learns from at childcare.

Like a second home. All the staff and management are so helpful and supportive since day one, they accommodate any special needs and my daughter loves going to childcare.

I would give more than five stars if that were possible! Amazing, kind, caring educators, sparkling clean facilities…our kids love going there! We shall be extremely sad when our children finish there, as the staff have become a huge part of our kid’s lives. They will immensely miss going there. Highly recommend!

Meet the Centre Director

Welcome to Stepping Stone Marden Childcare and Early Development Centre.

Hello, my name is Chiara D’Antini and I am the centre director here at Stepping Stone Marden. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself.
I have been in the childcare industry for 12 years working in various roles, gaining valuable knowledge and experience along the way.

I hold a Diploma of Early Childhood Educator and Care that I completed straight out of high school – my first job in the industry was as a team leader of a nursery room, where I fell in love with the age group and focusing on the circle of security to build strong relationship with each child.

Here at Stepping Stone Marden we pride ourselves in providing a welcoming, warm and safe environment that stimulates our children to explore, grow and have fun through play based learning. Our remarkable and dedicated team are enthusiastic and passionate about ensuring your child gets the best possible care.

On behalf of myself and my dedicated educators, we look forward to meeting you and working in partnership with your family.
