Footsteps are thrilled that our new Watermead Pre-school is now open! Based in the grounds of The Piazza, in Aylesbury, this bright welcoming space will have a strong ethos towards a caring and nurturing setting, as well as access to plenty of outside space where all children can thrive.
Throughout all Footsteps nurseries and pre-schools, a strong sense of community is a part of everyday life. From our annual summer BBQ’s to trips to the Christmas panto, parent stay and play sessions, to visiting the local care home. The Footsteps approach ensures that everyone is engaged, from start to finish, in the children’s learning and development.
Key principles include:
With 28 places this pre-school values the opportunity to really understand each and every child. Places are available for children aged 2 years + and will be open from 7.30am to 2.00pm. We also offer both 15 and 30 hours funding.

“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 Watermead, our aim is to bring families together by creating a sense of community and ensure each child:
“Our Watermead pre-school is the setting for plenty of fun, giggles and exploring the world through a huge range of activities and play. Our staff are dedicated to providing your child with an encouraging and supportive approach to their well-being, as well as to setting strong foundations for their education.
We love getting plenty of fresh air and exercise and are lucky to have our extensive outdoors space. From nature walks to our allotments and outdoor learning activities, I am proud to be part of this fantastic team!”
Karen has a long career working with children as well as 2 children of her own – 2 boys age 3 & 7 which keep her busy in her spare time! Her favourite activities are cooking and nature walks where she loves to share her love of the natural environment with the children.
Karen said “I am so excited to start my next chapter at Watermead. I can’t wait to really get to know all the children, what makes them tick, what excites and motivates them and to have lots of fun!”
Lynsey has been working with children for over 27 years now, she has 2 older children of her own a boy and girl of 17 & 13.
She likes spending time with family and friends enjoying walks in the countryside.
I just love working with children watching them grow and develop over their time with us, helping them to prepare for their journey onto school.
Some of my favourite activities to do with the children include going on nature walks, making play dough and getting them motivated with energetic music and movement sessions.
Let’s have some fun!
