About the employer

Originally established in 1988, Derwent Stepping Stones began with a group of women who came together when they were unable to work due to a lack of affordable, local childcare. Since that day, community has remained at the heart of everything we do. We deeply care about and support the communities in which we work, providing high quality early education and local childcare to families, and opportunities and traineeships for young people wanting to develop a rewarding career in childcare.
