Stepping Stones seeks to provide a highly stimulating, educational, loving and safe environment to enable children to develop naturally at their own pace and provide every opportunity to maximise their own potential.
The basis of our approach follows the world renowned methods developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first woman in Italy to graduate in medicine. As a trained paediatrician she dedicated her life to finding techniques for guiding a child’s motivation and development which are highly respected worldwide. By offering your child the benefit of the specially designed apparatus and materials within the purpose built, child centred environment, we enjoy a well proven track record of children attaining their full potential in a well balanced natural way.

Staff are warm and caring and provide a nurturing environment where children and babies are confident to seek out familiar adults when they need support and comfort. Children's learning is enhanced through the staff's secure knowledge of how children learn and progress. They regularly observe and assess what children can do and use this information to tailor future activities to further children's learning. Children are motivated to learn through well thought out activities...Children develop good self-esteem....They behave very well. showing consideration for others.'
