Promoting First Steps Nursery

Thank you to everyone who attended our Open Day. The weather was good, and we had a good turnout of parents, grandparents, and children. Many thanks to Neil for arriving in the police van, Liam for showing us his fantastic truck, and to Sarah for bringing Nellie the pony. Thanks also to Emily for bringing her cards, and Ros for sharing her sewing skills with us. The animals and paint a pot were a big success. Many thanks to the staff for working on a Saturday.

To continue to promote First Steps Nursery we are working with If you could spare a few minutes to leave a review with them it would be much appreciated. Thanks goes to those parents that have already left a review. We have a change of Facebook page happening. You will find us at First Steps Nursery Maxey. The old page is being deleted this week.

It has been suggested that First Steps Nursery children might like to wear a polo shirt or hooded top the same as the staff. This is for The Dragonfly and Bumble Bee children. This should help to protect their clothes. We would value your opinions on this.
