Next Steps Childcare Centre

Next Steps is sited in 240 acres of beautiful countryside within the boundaries of the Showground.

Our Award Winning Day Nursery offers superb age appropriate facilities in a safe and caring environment. We pride ourselves on our holistic approach to childcare, offering Forest School, Yoga, Singing, Music & Dance, Gardening and Cooking sessions weekly. Our recent (2015) Ofsted inspection rated our "Contribution of the Early Years Provision to the well being of the children" as Outstanding.

We have two large secure themed gardens with outdoor classrooms, one with a Forest School, where we use nature and the environment to encourage and inspire the children to grow in confidence, independence and self esteem through mastering small outdoor tasks. The other garden has a specialised baby area for outdoor sleeping (monitored by CCTV), a vegetable patch and three activity areas for free play.
