Stepping Stones After School Club


What an amazing holiday club week. Ester hunts, card making, laser-tag, cookery...the list goes on. My child said to me "we are so lucky to go somewhere where people care for us and give us fun things to do". Bless. Well done Stepping Stones.
Proud to be one of the local businesses supporting the Valley End outdoor Christmas Fayre today, alongside Stepping Stones After School Club
Hope everyone had a wonderful afternoon ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผโœจ

Both my children attended Stepping Stones whilst at Valley End Infant School and returned for holiday club afterwards too, until they became too old. They utterly loved it! We had some tears on their final day and the children were upset too. Sharon, Philip and the team looked after them all so well, managing the difficulties of so many small people all together after a full day of school, as well as giving them fun activities and very good food too! Holiday club was a Godsend for us and the kids were delighted to be out of the house, playing with their friends, rather than being swapped around different houses/grandparents all holiday. For my two, their closest friends whilst at infant school were always those with whom they were at Stepping Stones. What's more, those are the friendships which have endured going to different schools and are still their best friendships several years later. Stepping Stones is not only convenient for working parents, but it is a real investment in the social well-being of children whose parents can't afford the luxury of as much time at home as they would like! Highly, highly recommended!

Need after school child care? You need Stepping Stones! We are a family run after school and holiday

๐ŸŽ„Christmas dinner: happy tummies and happy children๐ŸŽ„

Weโ€™ll be reopening as usual on January 4th. We wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our families. See you again in 2023!

โšฝWorld Cup Design Colouring Contest Winners โšฝ

Weโ€™ve had World Cup themed activities for our older children including a challenge to design the best team kit and trophies.

We hope all the children enjoyed this activity, and congratulate the winners! ๐Ÿ†


Youโ€™re welcome, Valley End Infant School. Weโ€™re proud to be one of the local businesses who sponsored the Christmas Fayre again this year. This school is also one of our longest serving school partners.

July is Plastic Free Julyยฎ

It has been started to drive awareness of plastic pollution โ€“ a step towards having cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities.

Reducing single-use plastic waste everyday whether at home, work or school setting is one of the key focuses. has some great resources and ideas as to how we can all become a little more aware about what we can do to help reduce the amount of plastic we are using.

Small steps can make big differences if we all do something:-

- We encourage the children to bring/use single-use plastic bottles
- We try and reuse / recycle / reduce the amount of plastic toys we have


are proud sponsors!

We are delighted to be one of the sponsors at this years Valley End Infant School Summer Fayre.

Why not pop along tomorrow!
