Kia Ora!
I am Sarah, the owner and visiting teacher for Stepping Stones homebased childcare.  We are a small local team based solely in Taupō.

After helping to set up and run Stepping Stones for 4 years I had the opportunity to purchase the business and run it as my own!  I took ownership in July 2019 with a commitment to providing a place where love and learning are at the heart of everything we do for the children, families and educarers.

I am extremely excited about this journey and look forward to welcoming you into our Stepping Stones Whānau.

Ngā mihi,
Sarah Dempsey
