Stepping Stones childcare centres are situated in Fgura, B’Kara, Qawra and Marsascala operating on a 24 hour basis. We open from Monday to Friday from 6.00a.m to 6.00p.m. Extra hours on demand. We cater for children from 2 months up to 6 years.
Our Aim is to provide a healthy and safe environment to our little ones, by introducing stimulating activities tailored to meet the child’s needs. At Stepping Stones we create a colorful world to our children by involving them in fun loving activities such as cooking, singing, dancing, hourly puppet shows, outdoor activities, swimming, Zumba, crafts, outings and much more. This will help children develop a sense of appreciation in learning by participating in a playful and enjoyable experience.
In parallel we also involve all the family in the child’s world. Stepping Stones organizes mother and child club and family outings such as picnics and children’s parties.
As from April 2014, we will be part of the Government Free Childcare Incentive, where working parents will benefit from free childcare. We also offer the tax rebate scheme for parents to claim €1300 back from the annual childcare fees.
Stepping Stones facilities operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round.
Ages: from 2 MONTHS to 5 YEARS
In parallel with our childcare services we have introduced kindergarten classes 1 and 2. Children at Stepping Stones are given individual attention. Progress is monitored on a daily basis and discussed with the parents.
We operate in line with EU Regulations for both the structure and operation of childcare facilities, as certified by the Department of Social Welfare.
Our pre-school services provide your child with a sound foundation to start primary school without fear or tantrums. The benefits are clear. Children start making friends and acquire socialisation skills in a friendly, playful and educational environment. They have plenty of fun at Stepping Stones, and by the age of five, they will be well-prepared to attend primary school.
Stepping Stones caters for:
- Parents wishing to provide a sound foundation for their children’s future education
- Busy couples, juggling with office hours and bringing up children
- Shift working parents, such as nurses, police officers, air hostesses, hotel staff
- Couples who wish to enjoy a night out, or a well deserved weekend break
- Single parents needing a helping hand
- We offer sleep-overs with a packed activity programme that would definitely be a memorable stay for the children.
Whenever you need us, we can look after your most precious ones round the clock — we’re always a phone-call away.
Childcare involves more than just babysitting and keeping children safe. It involves the holistic development of children, which includes their social, emotional and physical development.
High quality childcare motivates children to learn through playful activities such as arts and crafts, cooking and gardening. During the hot summer days the children have the opportunity to play in an outdoor fresh-water pool under protective canopies.
With our varied programmes, each day children are learning something new with well-planned and purposeful activities.
