    • Reviews from Parents

      Here are a few reviews from parents of past and present children!


      My child enjoys coming to nursery especially when they go on walks down the lane to see the animals. She settled well into the new room and she talks fondly of the staff.

      Lovely Staff

      My son attended this lovely village nursery once a week. He settled in quickly and loved the staff. A great outdoors area that is used to the full potential. Frequent walks around the village and visits to the park which my son loved. Activities always taking place to help with the children's development (and plenty of fantastic arts/crafts coming home!). My son really enjoyed his time at First Steps and he developed leaps and bounds while in the setting. Would definitely recommend First Steps especially to families with children who love being outdoors.

      Supportive & Lovely

      Both our sons were at First Steps Nursery from babies through to leaving for school, meaning we've had a relationship with the lovely staff there for the last seven years. The nursery has been supportive throughout, catering to our youngest son's speech delay and engaging with external professionals where necessary. We always felt confident that our children were well looked after and most importantly were very happy in the setting. There was a lot of feedback during each development stage and we like to look back on all the photographs and saved little comments that were recorded over the years.
