Footsteps Nunsmoor is our first playgroup which opened in April 2014, and is going from strength to strength. This is a small but very popular provision that offers a friendly, welcoming place for children and families.
We are very lucky to have access to the facilities at the Nunsmoor Centre and feel this provides excellent diversity and opportunities for our children.
We pride ourselves on having a very strong team that works together to provide the best teaching, caring atmosphere for children and do our best to include them in our activities. We would like parents to know that and that we are offering an outstanding care for their children.
We care for children with additional needs and we have a very good reputation in the area for offering an excellent quality of services for those children by working closely with all the professional involved such as health visitors, EEAST team, speech and Language Therapist, OT and Physiotherapist and Sure Start
We consider working with other professionals to be one of our greatest strengths. We have an excellent reputation for working effectively with our SEN Team, S&L and Health Teams to name a few.
Our working with Parents is another of our greatest strengths. We work closely with our parents valuing their opinions on the setting, what we offer and in their children’s learning journey. We ensure continuous learning via home: setting activities and book share system.
Our settling-in process allows children and their parents to get to know the setting, our staff and our routines before they start with us allowing for a more smooth transition.

“Staff know the children well. They use their observations and assessments of children’s development to monitor their progress effectively. Their timely interventions enable all children to make good progress from their starting points” – Ofsted report 2017
“Children of all ages play well together in the exciting well-resourced garden and play areas. They delight in the wide range of activities provided outdoors. Children try out different ways to move on the large climbing apparatus and become more agile as they skilfully balance on rope bridges.” – Ofsted report 2017
