Latest update September 2021
We would like to welcome all of our families to another exciting new school year at Littlesteps!
Our topic for the next few weeks will be ‘All about me’. As part of this topic, we would appreciate you emailing a photo of your family to us, so that we can print and laminate it. We have found that the children really enjoy using a family photo to tell adults and friends about their family. This contributes to both their social and communication skills. For children who are still settling, the photo can also be a comfort to them.
Please remember that autumn is on its way and as the weather gets colder, your child will need to wear warm clothing, a waterproof coat and suitable footwear when arriving at Littlesteps as we will be playing outside as much as we can. As always, please remember to put names in clothing, shoes and bags to avoid mix ups.
We also ask that you provide a pair of wellies for wet weather outdoor play.
If your child will be staying for lunch at Littlesteps, please can we remind you to cut grapes in half lengthways if you choose to send them in their packed lunch. This is very important in reducing the risk of choking.
Towards the end of this month, there will be the opportunity for the families of new children to have an informal meeting with your child’s key person to discuss their progress and settling at Littlesteps. Your child’s key person will approach you personally to arrange this.
Friendly reminder – please DO NOT park in the disabled spaces in the car park unless you have a disability. There are people using the building throughout the day who genuinely need these spaces and who will struggle if they are taken up. Parking is available on the side of the road closest to the church building if the car park is full. Please be aware that parking on the opposite side of the road is by permit only and you may get a ticket if you park there.
Many thanks for your support.

Littlesteps Preschool will continue to have a temporary notice board outside of our entrance gate (until we are able to use our original Preschool entrance and main notice board). This will have up to date information on it about such things as upcoming events, our current topic and any current safety advice.
