Footsteps are thrilled to be opening a brand new pre-school in 2019. After intricately planned renovations to make the existing pre-school based in the Scout Hall, on Fleet Road in Farnborough into a fresh, flexible and welcoming space, it will become the latest addition to the Footsteps family where there is a strong ethos towards a caring and nurturing setting, where children thrive. This site will adopt a Reggio Emilia approach to learning. This inspiring child-led style is an innovative approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it. Key principles include:
With 30 places this nursery and pre-school values the opportunity to really understand each and every child. Places are available for children aged 2 to 5 years and will be open from 8.00am – 3.00pm during term time.
Claire Estcourt, Manager “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!” Wendy Hamley is our amazing Forest School Leader at Farnborough. She has worked within childcare for almost 30 years. As a graduate with extensive Early Years’ experience she always strives to make a difference in the lives of children. She has the ability to motivate team members, coupled with the ability to communicate comfortably at all levels, therefore ensuring an excellent environment for all. “As well as running the nursery, I am also the Forest School and Reggio Emilia coordinator. I strive to provide a hands-on approach for our children to thrive in, engaging children in their learning. I believe & trust that children progress at their own pace and in their own unique way, working in partnership with them to facilitate & support them, letting them pursue their own interests & curiosity, enabling them to create their own world.”
