About Us

We are a family owned and operated long day child care centre, which caters for up to 60 children daily aged from 6 weeks to 6 years old. Our centre operates for 50 weeks a year and opens from 7:30am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.

Since opening in 2008, we have won the St George Business Award for Most Outstanding Child Care Service in 2008 and 2013, and have been finalists in 2009, 2010 and 2014.

At Step by Step Early Learning Centre we strive towards providing a welcoming, safe, homely and supportive learning environment for all children and their families. We work within the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the National Quality Standards (NQS), to ensure that the children in our care are provided with the highest quality care and in turn, ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to grow into strong and capable adults.

We believe that children learn through the extension of their previous experiences, interests and hobbies; which we will support and extend on, by developing fun and exciting learning experiences through a variety of teaching strategies and resources.

Educators work toward developing a strong understanding of each child’s cultural backgrounds, home-life and learning needs using this knowledge and the support from external professionals to regularly differentiate their methods of teaching. This allows them to not only meet the needs of the variety of learners within our centre, but to also make learning experiences culturally relevant to children.
