Stepping Stones Nursery

Welcome to our nursery, where our rooms provide a warm and caring environment in which the children can thrive and learn at their own pace. Progress to each room is not always age based, although we use this as a guide. It is more effective to consider each child individually, acknowledging their age and stage of development in discussion with parents.

Baby Room & Toddler Room

Our baby and toddler rooms offer warmth, love, laughter and discovery all in a reassuring environment that is a home away from home.

The staff will spend time really getting to know the babies in their care – their likes and dislikes, their routines and feed patterns. The settling in period is of utmost importance to both us and you as a family and is particularly flexible with such little ones.

Once your baby or toddler is fully settled, they will enjoy a wide range of activities including painting, cooking, music, messy and sensory play and a lot of garden fun.

Lower Nursery

Lower Nursery continues to provide the same cosy atmosphere as the baby and toddler rooms with the emphasis being on creative, fun and energetic play. The daily structure and activities move forward in an age appropriate way with the prime areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage which are Social, Communication/Language and Physical Skills as the main focus in this room.

Daily activities include table top play, arts and crafts, imaginary role-play, construction toys, cooking, music and stories, amongst many others.

Upper Nursery

Around their 3rd birthday, children move into Upper Nursery, where they will be introduced to a more structured approach to their learning and will experience a broader range of activities incorporating all seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. The staff approach the seven areas of learning through planned, challenging and purposeful play with a balance of adult led and child initiated activities. We now also introduce daily “Jolly Phonics” sessions, mathematics, understanding of the World and expressive arts and design.

There are focused activities each day including music/drama, cooking, French, ballet, PE and forest school.


At Stepping Stones we love the great outdoors and recognise the importance of it for all the children in our care. Our enclosed path area outside the nursery is where our guinea pigs live and allows for free flow between indoors and outdoors.

Holiday Club

We offer holiday clubs during half terms and all school holidays. Places are reserved by returning the booking form in advance for the required days.
