🎤 A little bit about us 💞
A step above is a small family run childminding service with over 2️⃣5️⃣years experience in education.
We are ofsted registered and all staff are paediatric first aid trained. ⛑️
👩🏼🏫The team consists of a qualified teacher (who has 10 years teaching experience) and a nursery manager/ learning support practitioner (who has 15 years experience in a school setting). There are also two fabulous assistants: one of which has 16 years experience as a primary school learning support practitioner and the other has 8 years experience working in a day nursery.
💞Our main priority is to make sure that the children in our setting are happy and enjoying their learning. To achieve this, we spend time with each child building strong relationships to ensure that they are comfortable in the setting. All learning is bespoke to the intake of children that we have and will change regularly to keep all children engaged.
📚With our experience in schools, we know what is needed to provide opportunities for your child to achieve.
🏡All of our activities will be both indoor and outdoors in line with the EYFS framework.
We will be providing nutritious meals and healthy snacks throughout the day which have been carefully designed for by a local nutritionist. 🍐🥕🍓
We strongly encourage visits to our setting, please feel free to contact us to get yourself booked in.🏡
We have made suitcases to celebrate Windrush Day! 🧳
Do you know why Windrush Day is celebrated❓
🎉This is a day to celebrate the arrival of the Empire Windrush in Tilbury Docks, Essex, on 22 June 1948. The ship carried 1027 Caribbean people who had come to the UK to help rebuild the country after the Second World War.
