Delivering quality childcare to families in Evanston and surrounding areas

With six large fun filled rooms for children to play and learn, our Evanston early education and care centre offers care for children aged six weeks to school age. Our outdoor environments are spacious and inviting with all yards having large sandpits and soft fall areas. Take a sneak peak inside our centre below...

About the centre

At our centre, we believe that all children have the right to be treated equally and as individuals. Children are unique and therefore our centre will respect and be inclusive of all cultural backgrounds, religious persuasion, racial origin and additional needs.

We provide equality for all children and value each child as being their own person and endeavour to provide secure and respectful relationships with all families and educators within our centre and the wider community.

We are a SunSmart centre which means we protect our children from the sun’s harsh UV rays by following the Cancer Council’s guidelines. We have a lovely centre that we are all really proud of, feel free to pop in and say Hi.

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

The ladies at this centre are some of the most compassionate, caring people you will ever meet. My daughter who has significant special needs and mobility issues attended this centre for a couple of years. There was not one day where she was not made to feel welcome. She was included in all activities, nurtured and given the same opportunities as all the other children.

We’ve had such a great experience with all of the educators and staff at Evanston Gardens. They have tailored care specific to my child’s needs including keeping him in the routine he is comfortable with. His educators are always looking for ways to ensure he feels safe and secure in exploring and developing. They provide fantastic sensory learning opportunities and celebrate each success. They have absolutely made the transition to being back at work that much easier with the knowledge my little one is being well looked after. Thank you all at Evanston Gardens Stepping Stone!

My 3 year old has been at Stepping Stone Evanston for almost 2 years now and he loves going. The staff are very friendly and helpful, I wouldn’t want my son to go anywhere else.

Stepping Stones Evanston employees are one of a kind. They go above and beyond for my children and treat my children like their own. They genuinely love and care for them. The cook at childcare is amazing! My children always love the food provided. The different learning activities every day that are provided to my children are amazing and so creative. I wouldn’t chose another childcare for my children other than Stepping stones Evanston.

The staff are all friendly, helpful and welcoming from the moment you enter the door. My daughter found the transition to daycare a bit difficult but the staff have supported her through it so well, she is now excited to go!

This is the best child care centre by far. Amazing staff who work as team. So focused on the children from skills to activities even out of hours. Every time my girl went up to a different room I was sad as I formed a bond with staff in that room, but never disappointed with next. If you are unsure where to send your child this place will not disappoint you. Absolutely love this centre.

Meet the centre director

Hello, my name is Hayley and I am the centre director at Stepping Stone Evanston. I have been in early education and care for a little over sixteen years and have enjoyed every minute. Beginning my career as an unqualified assistant, I studied for my Diploma which lead me to work in different roles until I became the centre director here at Evanston. I have been with Stepping Stone (SA) since the very beginning when we opened our first centre back in February 2007 and am really enjoying the journey. I am happily married with two children who are both now adults and moving forward with their own career paths.

Based on my own values, our centre offers a warm and welcoming environment for all families and their children, taking particular pride in making our centre not only safe and friendly but also bright and beautiful. Our team of passionate educators are very firm believers in the early years and know how important it is that children gain the right start in education and care.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you through our remarkable centre.
