Julie Smithers and Kellie Dickson are Stepping Stones Education and Care.

We have a combined early childhood experience of over 50 years and have worked in all facets of early childhood education and care - both Centre Based and Family Day Care. We are passionate early childhood professionals who believe in “best outcomes for children” over and above all.

We use our wealth of experience and knowledge to support our educators in their day to day roles and to also provide support to the families that enter into our services care. We want our service to have a culture of community, where no stakeholder feels like a number or feels like they cannot express themselves respectfully.

We take great pride in our service and do everything in our power to ensure that our educators are equipped to provide high quality care and education to the children charged to them. We offer an intensive induction process for new educators to our service and continual support and professional development to build a strong confident and competent team of professionals.
