First Steps Nursery & Pre-school has been open since March 2004, as demand grew within the local community it enabled us to continue to offer child care to the local area and beyond. We open Monday – Friday, from 7.30am – 5.45pm for 51 weeks of the year. We cater for up to 40children per day aged between 6 weeks to 5 years.

With a highly qualified staff team and a staff hierarchy that supports on-going staff development, First Steps Nursery ensures that every child has access to a setting that will help them to learn independently and take part in a variety of learning opportunities. With an experienced Management Team who have many years of working in early years settings, we aim to offer the local community a nursery they can trust and depend on.

Our current fees are £45 per day for 1- 4 days per week. £40 per day for 5 days per week. £45 per day for Term time- 1-5 days per week. Early Learning for Two (ELT) & Early Years Funding Entitlement (EYFE) places are available with various sessions am/ pm. We offer the 30 hour EYFE funding on a first come, first served basis.

Based on the campus of Shireland Collegiate Academy, we have a wide range of resources and experiences to offer our children, including sports, music, drama and ICT facilities.
