Our Philosophy 


We believe that every child is unique and deserves an education that facilitates their academic social and developmental growth, through a variety of fun, enjoyable and interesting experiences that only a home-based service can provide. Early learning at Stepping Stones In-Home Childcare and learning within a home allows time for children to explore their curiosity, a time to learn while playing and a time of rapid growth and development. Our In-Home Program of learning relies on differentiated instruction and play based learning. We strive to educate and care for all children of Aotearoa that is developmentally appropriate and personal to each learner that only a home can offer.


Stepping Stones In-Home Childcare  envisions our learning program to form successful partnerships with educators, families and the community. 


We will strive to provide opportunities where we will incorporate Māori into our learning programs, which will increase all children’s awareness of Te Reo and the importance of the Māori culture alive and well.






Love is the supreme form of communication. In the hierarchy of needs, love stands as the supreme developing agent of the humanity of the person. As such, the teaching of love should be the central core of all early childhood curriculum with all other subjects growing naturally out of such teaching.”

Ashley Montagu
