WELCOME TO EARLY STEPS CHILDCARE CENTRE

A privately owned 95 place centre in the heart of Para Vista.

We opened our doors for the community on March 30, 2009 and are very proud of what we have achieved. As the saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child”, we would like the families and the whole community to be partners in the education of the children in our care.

Our educators are passionate, and they aim to build positive and meaningful relationships with the children and their families. We aim to provide a high-quality education using the Early Years Learning Framework we provide this curriculum in a challenging yet stimulating, well-equipped, safe, friendly, and fun environment.

Early Steps life is busy, challenging, fun and rewarding and we look forward to your family becoming part of our vibrant and diverse community!

This center has wonderful and nurturing staff (Lakmi, Natalija, Gini) who genuinely care for the kids. My child would hug teachers on his way in a give me a buy-buy with a smile! That gave me a great piece of mind, knowing that he's was well taken care of and happy. Also the centre director, Michelle, was always very accommodating and flexible whenever we had any additional requests or needed assistance.

As a parent of a child that attended this centre and an educator of Early Steps I would highly recommend sending your child here. The educators are helpful and friendly and do whatever they can to cater for each child’s needs.

Centre Director

I have been at Early Steps since its opening in 2009 and I have had the pleasure of working as an assistant director on the floor in the baby and kindy rooms and became the Centre Director in 2015.

I love my time on the floor engaging with the children, this gives me insight and knowledge as to what my team need and allows me to keep my passion for the sector.

I am married and have a son; we have 2 dogs and a cat and so it gets a bit crazy at times.

I look forward to getting to know you and your family.
