Childcare & Pre-school

Stepping Stones childcare centres are situated in Fgura, B’Kara, Qawra, Smart City and Marsascala. 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 3 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 colourful world for our children by involving them in fun loving activities such as cooking, singing, dancing, puppet shows, outdoor activities, swimming, Zumba, crafts, outings and much more. This will help children develop a sense of appreciation towards learning by participating in a playful and enjoyable experience.

In parallel we also involve all the family in the child’s world. Stepping Stones organises mother and child club and family outings such as picnics and children’s parties.

We are part of the Government Free Childcare Incentive. Working parents benefit from free childcare. We also offer the tax rebate scheme for parents to claim €1300 back from the annual childcare fees.

Ages: from 2 MONTHS to 3 YEARS

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 kindergarten or  primary school without fear or tantrums. The benefits are clear. Children start making friends and acquire social skills in a friendly, playful and educational environment. They have plenty of fun at Stepping Stones, and by the age of 3, they will be well-prepared to attend 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

Childcare involves more than just babysitting and keeping children safe. It involves the holistic development of children, which includes their social, emotional, physical and cognitive 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.
