Step by Step Nurseries offer high quality care and education to children aged 45 days – 4 years in their family centric settings designed and maintained to be happy, safe, and nurturing home away from home environments. Their large, converted villa settings, sit inside vibrant residential communities and due to their small size, they are able to offer a curriculum and approach that is individualized, and tailor made to meet every child’s unique needs. They work hand in hand with parents to ensure that they know every child exceptionally well and they believe that a strong partnership with parents supports the holistic care, learning and development goals for their children which in turn, enables every child to reach their full potential, step by step.
Using the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for England and a Reggio inspired approach to teaching and learning, they see children as unique, curious and competent learners. Their learning approach is underpinned by the five C’s: Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Care. These principles are widely acknowledged as highly effective early childhood pedagogy for the 21st century and at Step by Step nursery they emphasize hands on discovery learning that allows children to use all the senses and their many languages of learning. Their teachers are cognizant of each child’s potential and construct their work, play, and the environment to support, challenge and extend learning appropriately. They embrace the importance of the Arabic language, heritage and culture at Step by Step and offer Arabic language lessons twice weekly to all FS1 children as well as reinforcing key Arabic vocabulary throughout the daily programme.
Their classrooms are bright and spacious featuring ample open-ended resources and recycled materials to encourage creativity and support sustainability. Resources are accessible to children to encourage independence, communication, and collaboration. Areas of learning include sensory trays for messy and tactile exploration, table-top spaces for manipulative games and mark making activities, junk modelling areas to build and create quiet areas to retreat into and role play areas to encourage imagination and social development.
Their gyms are safe open spaces featuring large soft play blocks to encourage movement in a range of ways and directions, to develop gross motor skills such as balance, coordination, body control and function. Equally, the outdoor garden areas are purposely designed to support the development of skills such as climbing, running, crawling, balancing, sliding, jumping. Their large wooden bespoke equipment and interactive panels supports children’s physical development and compliment the natural gardens and sand areas.
At Step by Step, they offer flexible programmes and timings to suit every family’s needs and they are open from 7.30am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday. For added convenience, they offer a meal plan for the children consisting of breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea and they also run Extra Curricular Activities from 3pm daily including football and gymnastics. Their transportation service is ideal for working families and their bus operates across the surrounding local areas.
