First Steps Pre-School

First Steps Pre-School is situated within Plymouth Methodist Central Hall in the city centre.

We cater for children aged 2 years to 4 years and are open during term-time from on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9.15am to 2.15pm. Lunch provided.

Our aim is to provide quality care and education within a safe, secure and stimulating environment. To meet a child’s individual needs, working in partnership with parents or carers, providing a full and varied curriculum and developing warm relationships with children and their families. We are mindful of and provide equal opportunities for all children and their families within the community.

Facilities

The pre-school is situated on the first floor of Plymouth Methodist Central Hall with its own entrance. It is a self contained unit offering a safe secure environment. We have 2 main rooms plus toilets and nappy changing areas, a kitchenette and small office area. The rooms are split to provide areas focusing on children’s needs, with a book and quiet corner, role play, sand, painting and crafts, table top games and activities, and construction.

We have an outside play area as well as a large hall where we have access to larger play equipment, climbing frames, slide, bikes, tricks, balls, hoops and so on.

We regularly make use of exploring the environment around the area with walks to North Hill Reservoir Park, Plymouth Hoe and we have links with Sainsbury’s for activities. We have close links with Diggin-it at Devonport Park, where the children attend monthly sessions learning about and taking part in planting, growing, harvesting and of course eating produce.
