Customer reviews

"We have been delighted by the care our son has received a First Steps Nursery - he absolutely loves it! We have seen his social skills and speech come on leaps and bounds over the past year and we appreciate all the support the staff have given. We look forward to sending our younger son when he is 2!"

“It is very reassuring to have my child so close to my workplace and if needed i could be there quickly. We both enjoy spending precious time together driving to work in the morning and its wonderful to leave work and be with my daughter within 5 minutes to hear all about her great day in the nursery”
