Our commitment…

From apprentices to managers, all First Steps staff hold either a full ‘Early Years’ qualification or are working
towards one.
Each of our nurseries has a named SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-coordinator – please see our SEND
policy on our website for further details).
We facilitate access to free childcare entitlement for two, three and four year olds.
24hr access to your child’s development file so you can always monitor and add to their learning journey.

Our Intent
We aim to support individual children to be happy, confident and engaged in their learning and development. Our
intent is that children are motivated to become:
• Curious
• Resilient
• Empathetic
• Social
• Independent
• Passionate
Through our core opportunities and experiences we strive towards making a positive impact for children. Our
implementation of this approach is through the delivery of child focused, varied and rich play opportunities which
inspire active learning and critical thinking through playing and exploring.
