Pre School

3 years – 5 years

Pre School at First Steps

In Pre-School your child is encouraged to learn and develop in a fun environment, giving a structured routine and opportunity for free play, preparing them for their upcoming transition to school. We encourage the children to co-operate with one another, develop friendships, share experiences and take turns. There are ample activities and resources available, such as different educational programmes and digital games to support language development, creativity and growth of mathematical concepts.

We provide a dedicated learning environment, so each child makes steady progress towards the Early Learning Goals, preparing your child for academic success.

From an early age, children are educated and encouraged to learn about different cultures and this ethos of diversity and equality is promoted throughout the nursery.

All our activities are carefully planned by our team, all of whom are qualified in (or working towards) Early Years Development, and inspected by OFSTED to ensure the effectiveness of our teaching.
