Stepping Stones Nursery (Church Stretton)


Stepping Stones Nursery is a small setting run by friendly, caring, qualified staff. The number of children per session and staff ratio enables us to offer quality individual interaction and foster a high standard of personal and social skills amongst the children making it easy for them to interact with each other and be ready to learn. The atmosphere is calm and the children feel secure and valued. They have good relationships with their peers and the practitioners have good relationships with the children, families and each other. The size of our group enables us to make good use of the environment and community during our weekly " out and about" sessions. We offer 24u funding, the universal 15 hours and some of the extended 30 hours term time only. Local Offer: At Stepping Stones we do ongoing observational assessments of all children in our care. These are linked to the EYFS ages and stages of development, which helps us to identify the individual needs of the children. These observations are discussed between the key staff members and shared with the child's parents where possible. We operate a key person system, at Stepping Stones Nursery, with each child having a key person and back up key person. Staff may discuss the needs of key children in order to promote welfare and progression. The key person develops positive relationships with parents and children to support a respectful sharing of information. If you have any concerns about your child's development you can ask for time to discuss this in private with your child's key person. If your child's key person has identified a possible individual need they will discuss the matter with you in private and plan together to support your child's learning and development. A copy of Stepping Stones Nursery full local offer is available on request.
