Welcome to Stepping Stone Marden

At Stepping Stone Marden our team of passionate Educators work together to provide the best care for children and collaboratively with families to build positive relationships. We use the Early Years Learning Framework to guide our educational program, using it as a foundation to support learning outcomes for each and every child in our care.

Our centre consists of 6 fantastic age appropriate rooms and two large outside learning environments which has a focus on nature. Indoor-outdoor play is an embedded practice and is implemented everyday whatever the weather. This provides the children with the opportunity to explore their natural environment, learn to make choices, take risks and have fun while they explore and learn.
