First Steps Christian Pre-school

Situated at Church on the Way, First Steps seeks to introduce children to God the Creator, Father and Friend, providing a God-centred, bible-based foundation. It is our aim to nurture each child as a special and unique individual, loved by God and where prayer and praise become a natural part of the child's life.

We are recognised by Ofsted and are able to take children from 2 years old up to starting primary school.
