First Steps is a privately owned Pre-school nursery established in April 2014. We are registered with Ofsted to provide childcare and early years education to children age 5 and under.

All our staff are fully qualified and trained in First Aid, Safeguarding, Food hygiene, and Early Language Development. We have a qualified Early Years Teacher to lead the delivery of the EYFS curriculum. 

Our Ethos
We believe that every child is unique and that all children should be encouraged to flourish and reach their potential. 

We offer a wide range of exciting and stimulating activities and resources to enable our children to investigate and explore in a safe and secure environment. 
We use a lot of natural and open ended resources to encourage our children to develop their imagination and creativity. Research shows that time spent outdoors can have huge benefits to a child's health, well being and learning. Here at First Steps we spend a lot of time outdoors and provide wellies and all weather suits to enable our children to access the outdoor environment whatever the weather.
