More About Us

Nurseries in Coventry

Welcome to First Steps Kindergarten. We are an established Nursery in Coventry since 1992, The ethos of the Nursery was to nurture the developing child and capitalize on their learning ability.

It is said that the child learns more in the first four years than at any other period of life. So with this in mind we set out to love, care for and stimulate the children in our care.

Quality Childcare Services

The atmosphere of the Nursery is friendly and purposeful. We believe your child will grow through thoughtful nurture, with staff that are caring and professional. Your child will be treated as an individual with individual needs and interests which we will support throughout their most formative years.

We would endeavour to help your child to fully develop their potential abilities through well-organised play, built upon a sound foundation of basic knowledge, concepts and skills. We would hope that we could build a partnership with you, their parents, to give your child the best possible start in life.

Located in Canon Park, Coventry we are one of the most established nurseries in Coventry with years of experience in quality child care.
