“Both my daughters have attended New Stepping Stones and absolutely loved it. The facilities and extra classes they provide are excellent and the staff are experienced, kind and amazing with the children. NSS has a really lovely parent community and everyone gets involved so has been a great way to meet other families
Matilda has been at Stepping Stones for 2 years now and she skips to school every morning. The nursery has the benefit of really experienced key-workers who genuinely care for the little ones. They are also very creative in their approach to all the activities. Apart from amazing things to make and toys to play with, there’s music, yoga and football every week! We LOVE New Stepping Stones.
“My son has been so happy at New Stepping Stones from his very first day. Most days when I drop him off I wish I was staying to enjoy the fun myself! The wide range of activities and staff that are so encouraging and supportive are the perfect start to the education journey.”
“Stepping Stones is a caring, nurturing environment and a wonderful start for my little one on the journey to school. The staff are warm, caring and create a wonderful, safe place that the children love. Being a charity it has a very special feel, everyone gets involved and it has a strong community feel. I am so happy we have chosen New Stepping Stones and would highly recommend it to others.”
When we first visited the nursery, we thought the atmosphere was wonderful. Our son has been attending New Stepping Stones for almost a year now, and at every drop-off & pick-up, we feel exactly the same thing!We are so appreciative of the amazing staff, the efforts that are made to create an environment of fun, learning and nurturing. The studio with music classes, daily café, baking and even the annual on-site farm visit, are just a few of the things that have helped to ensure our son is excited to attend nursery each day.New Stepping Stones has offered everything we could have asked for and more. We couldn’t be more pleased with our choice.
We have been incredibly impressed by the fantastic job carried out by the staff at NSS. Archie looks forward to every day there, and is clearly thriving in the environment that the nursery creates. It’s a happy and relaxed atmosphere at NSS, and it’s great to see him learning so much week by week.
We are so delighted we have been able to secure a place for our youngest daughter to the New Stepping Stones Playgroup. We knew it already as our older girl went there too but we are still very happy about the whole set up. The manager is responsive and very organised, the staff members are kind, experienced, friendly and always available for a chat about our child. The playgroup also offers many fun and varied activities for the children including music, yoga, football, cooking to name a few. I could not recommend a better playgroup in the area!
With a year to go until school intake and my daughter being a summer birthday, I became concerned that she did not yet have the right skills to deal with being in an environment where she needed to be more independent. I work full time and had depended on a nanny for childcare. This had worked well but I knew I needed to widen her horizons. NSSP had been recommended by a parent and I found that it had a wonderful ‘kindergarten’ like environment. The staff took on my concerns and encouraged my daughter to grow. She has learned so much about looking after herself. The staff gently encourage and guide towards the children becoming independent. They advised me when they felt she was ready for lunch club. They are wonderfully innovative and nurturing. They have so much creative play for the children and there is clear thought that goes into planning each day. My daughter wouldn’t interact with circle time for the first term but then gradually felt secure enough to move into the circle. Now I am told she is ‘very vocal’! Having absolutely refused to go to ballet lessons prior to NSSP she now goes to an extra class as well. NSSP has had a huge impact on her behaviour too, as she will actually sit in church now! She is now more ready for school than I could ever have wished for. Thank you so much.
All three of our children have gone to New Stepping Stones and absolutely loved it! Our eldest daughter is thirteen now and still remembers the fun she had there and of course the lovely staff! We would highly recommend this pre-school!
