Our Staff

When it comes to childcare, nothing is more important than being able to trust the person looking after your child.

At First Steps Childcare Limited, we only recruit staff who go that extra mile to foster and maintain a caring relationship with you and your child. Therefore, all of our staff are hired on the basis of a proven and referenced qualification & recent dbs check.

Our staff are encouraged to move to the next level of their profession – to aspire to a higher qualification, be it a diploma or degree or spending time putting their most recent training into practice or through attendance of childcare management training courses. All staff are trained in safeguarding & paediatric first aid.
