Meet the centre director

Hi, my name is Julie Barnes and I am the centre director here at Stepping Stone Kidman Park.

I began my journey in early childhood education in 1990 and over the years I have worked in various roles ranging from team leader, educational leader and assistant director. 

As an early childhood teacher, my passion has always been within the early years and I believe it is an important time for children as they begin to grow and discover the world around them. It is a joy to be part of so many children’s journeys each and every day.

As centre director, I believe the high importance of the relationships between the educator and parent and acknowledge the trust you put in us each and every day to look after your precious children. Our team will endeavour to develop meaningful relationships with the children in our care which ensures they feel safe and secure as they learn through play and investigation.

I am married with two children of my own, so I understand the precious gift families are giving the service by allowing us to be part of their child’s lives and trusting us to nurture and educate them.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our service and invite you to become part of our family. Please feel free to come and see for yourself just how we can support your little one to have the best possible start in life.
