“My daughter joined Footsteps at two and a half years old and all the staff made her feel so at home – even playing hairdressers over and over in her first nervous weeks! She developed a great group of friends, became very confident and was totally ready for school by the time she left this September. My son is now in the baby room and loves his time there. It puts me at ease to know he’s nurtured and looked after by a brilliant team at Footsteps, who feel like a family. ”
At Footsteps Farnborough, our aim is to ensure:
“Being part of the Footsteps team is a dream. After 30 years of working in early years education my passion lies with pre-school and outdoor education using natural resources to promote learning. No day is ever the same and I get to be an explorer, an inventor, a magician and story teller!
It’s the best job in the world. I am looking forward to being part of the developments at Footsteps and seeing the children’s excitement when coming to preschool each day!”
” After working in a variety of day care settings, being part of opening Footsteps Farnborough was the beginning of my journey home. Working at a setting which you believe in – is vital. “I am very proud of our setting, staff and the progress we have made. I am very passionate about the different types of learning and experiences we offer.
As a mum of three, my mindset is to provide care for the children that I would wish for my own and I see Footsteps as an extension of my family.”
Helen is our amazing Senior Practitioner. She has worked within childcare for many years and developed her career through extensive childcare roles, responsibilities & environments. “I’m very excited to join the footsteps family. The setting being focused on outside provision offered so many exciting opportunities to all the children as well as our natural equipment inside the setting. As a mummy of 3, I know how important it is for children to learn through their own interests & through play. I’m very excited to start my journey at footsteps.”
Her wealth of experience and her caring and nurturing nature, allows your child feel comfortable and at ease from their first day. “I ensure that all children are made to welcomed and feel special during their time at Footsteps. From every crawl to every fall, I am here for your child.” Anna ensures that all of the children in her care are children are settled into a routine every day, ensuring they have consistency with play, sleep and meal times.
