About us 

Early Steps was founded by sisters Kerry and Vicky who remain the directors of the nursery today. They maintain strong family values that form the foundation of Early Steps’ ethos. They are committed to making every child they provide care for feel part of their childcare family.

Our nursery follows The Curiosity Approach to care and education. This approach brings curiosity, awe, and wonder into early childhood and this helps us create and nurture the thinkers and doers of the future. We are proud to undertake The Curiosity 

Approach accreditation and we will be the first accredited setting in the whole of the Dudley Borough.
