Welcome to First Steps


First Steps Pre-school has a clear Christian identity.  It operates on the Christian principals of love, forgiveness, respect for self and others, acceptance of all cultures, responsible behaviour and enjoyment of the facilities we provide for the children and their families.


At First Steps we provide an inclusive, safe, caring and happy Christian environment where all children can learn, play and develop as individuals.


We recognise that children have individual needs and will develop at different rates.  We offer an indoor and outdoor learning environment and work closely with parents and carers to encourage all children to reach their potential.

Emergency closures: If there is a need to close during a session, staff will contact parents/carers via telephone. If we are unable to contact you we will work down your list of contacts - please ensure these details are kept up to date. Should the preschool be closed for weather or other unplanned purposes, we will update with information via our website http://www.firststepsashill.co.uk and will send a group email to you. Alternatively you can email Lou to clarify. We will do our very best to give you notice of any closure, but this may not always be possible.
