A great place for children

Every child deserves to grow up with a safe, happy environment in which to learn and develop… so that’s what Little Footsteps strives to offer! Here’s how we do it:

  • Supporting children to reach their full potential: we do this in all areas of development by continually evaluating and planning to meet their individual needs.

  • Working in partnership with parents: we value your expertise and acknowledging them as their child's primary educator. You know your child better than anyone else.

  • Promoting a multiagency approach: we work closely with qualified teachers, family support workers, social services and health professionals to support your child.
