our day intro

At Footsteps , we follow a timetable which is similar in all of the Nursery areas. We provide three meals a day as well as drinks and healthy snacks, following a four week menu to ensure our meals are varied and nutritious. Footsteps staff are experienced and qualified and follow an ongoing training programme to update skills and bring fresh ideas into our Nursery. We have acheived the Investors In People Award, which demonstrates our commitement to our staff, their training and development. Each day has carefully planned activities. For example, role play, creative play, construction toys, jigsaws, pre-school skills, physical play, music and movement, sand and water play or computer skills are some of the activities on offer. We have a wide variety of toys and equipment which are renewed constantly to provide hours of fun and stimulation.  We follow both the Birth to Three Matters and Foundation Phase Framework to provide a curriculum for all ages which will develop your child in all areas.  We monitor and record all children’s development in all developmental areas to ensure we are helping your child’s development every step of the way.

We have outdoor play areas for babies, toddlers and school age children, and these areas as used daily to give the children fun, exercise and fresh air, in a safe, enclosed environment.
