Staff and childOur excellent staff are dedicated and enthusiastic, with up-to-date skills and qualifications.  All our staff are qualified first aiders.  We provide time and space for knowledge-sharing, and support for continuous professional development for all our staff.  First Step is a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance, and we ensure that we keep up-to-date with best practice in early years care and education.  We share best practice with other early years practitioners, and we are currently acting as mentors for South Gloucestershire Council."Staff are always friendly and happy to help."
Parent comment

We have a high ratio of adults to children in our pre-school sessions - at least one adult to four children for under threes, and at least one adult to six children for over threes.  This helps us to give time and attention to each child - talking and listening to them and helping them to get the best out of the experiences and activities we provide. 

We work in partnership with parents to share information and involve them in their child’s continuous learning and development.
