About First Steps Day Nursery & Out of School Care

 We have booking arrangements to suit most family needs such as full time 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday. Part time either few full days or half days. Sessions either funded only which are allocated according to vacancies and can be 5 days 3hour sessions or 3 days 5 hour sessions or 2 7.5 hour sessions per week. We also have an attendance sheet system where shift working families can book a month in advance exactly what they need and only pay for what they book or if they have any week with no booking they pay for 1 day to keep place available.

These are allocated on first come first served so the further ahead you can let us know requirements the better.

EYPP

The early years pupil premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years providers to improve outcomes for children by providing them with enhanced learning and development support. This means that for children from low income families accessing the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE), providers are entitled to receive additional funding of up to £300 per year. Providers should work in partnership with parents to carefully consider the learning and development needs of the child.

All of our policies and procedures are available to view in our foyer and copies can be obtained if desired.
