Today the children chose to explore different coloured paint mixed with shaving foam. 🎨
After coving our hands in “pink foam” we found it very amusing giving our friends high fives 😂 It’s fair to say the ceiling/walls had a slight makeover! 🙈🥰👏🏼
We can’t wait to see your wonderful creations! 💛
There are some very exciting prizes to be won...🐰🍫
Our homemade (very famous) tuna balls served with couscous, vegetables and a rich garlic, tomato and herb sauce!
Please make sure you tell us all of the wonderful things your little one is getting up to at home so we can encourage and celebrate progress here at Footsteps!
Last week all staff chose two ‘wow moments’ per room that stood out to be added onto our new board... We are so excited to continue to add more ‘wow moments’ and would love your input!!! 💜💚💙
All raised last Saturday for the wonderful Macmillan Cancer Support 💚

Keeping cool at Footsteps 💕☀️🍦
Good morning all ☀️
Polite reminder… 🧴👒
Please make sure your little one has sun cream on before arriving to nursery and the named bottled is left in their bag for top ups throughout the day. (I know some will be using nursery cream, don’t panic we have lots) 😊 Please also make sure your child has a named sun hat too!
It’s very important we work together to keep your little ones safe in this heat whilst still getting to enjoy garden play at appropriate times, thank you ☀️
We did it!!! 🏃🏻♀️💓💕 # #

Hi my name is Stevie, I started my Footsteps journey in 2014 as a parent and more recently as part of the Footsteps team! I am Level 2 qualified and am currently studying my Level 3 in childcare to progress further with my career. 😊
Working with children has always been my goal, growing up I was OBSESSED with stationary and wanted to be a teacher. I have worked in various Early Years settings for almost 12 years now and am very passionate about my job, the children, and helping them reach their milestones. I want to continue to progress in learning about additional needs once I complete my Level 3 qualification. I completed my SENCO training as my youngest brother was diagnosed with Autism and ADHD. This made me want to understand him better and to be able to offer him support. This is something I’m really passionate about.
When I'm not working I am caring for my three girls aged 5-11, 3 rabbits, 2 hamsters and seven fish... Who likes resting anyways 🤣
I am an active person, I enjoy creative activities with children and love any physical activities with them too! I’m currently in the Big Toddler room and I’m really enjoying getting to know everyone at the moment. Can’t wait to see where my footsteps journey takes me 💜💚💙👣
3/3!!! Magical morning ✨ Thank you all so so much for coming to Footsteps # # # ❤️🤍💙
