A day in the life of Stepping Stones Childcare
Stepping Stones Childcare is a day nursery that offers a safe and comfortable environment for your little ones. We are located in St Margaret’s Church Hall at Leytonstone, East London.
Stepping Stones offers your children a full day of fun, laughter, play and rest. The day is broken up into many activities to keep the children interested, stimulated and active.
We divide our nursery children into three groups. Our babies and toddlers, Joeys, are aged between 6 months and 2 years. The childcare group for the Possums are aged 2-3 years and the preschool children, the Roos, are 3 to 4 years old.
