We are happy to see the same faces showing good retention of staff.
Working families need access to affordable, flexible childcare; First Steps Community Nurseries offer a range of sessions, term time and all year round at an affordable price.
Poverty is not created by the poor but through the systems and institutions, we have designed. Our vision is to change these systems with nursery sessions that enable working and non-working parents to book sessions that suit their lives at an affordable price. First Steps pedagogy for children mitigates poverty's impact through rich learning experiences and attuned high-quality care.
We believe that learning through play and exposure to new experiences is a vital aspect of a child's development. The activities which your child initiates are just as important a learning experience as the ones which are planned in nursery. The main learning at nursery comes from the interactions between your child and the other children and adults, from exploration and investigation, rather than creating an end product.
We see parents as their child's first educator and welcome all involvement because we realise the importance and the value of your role.
First Steps is inclusive see below how we assess, support and enhance the learning and the development of children who have additional needs.
