About us 

Early Steps is owned by sisters Kerry and Vicky. They maintain strong family values that form the foundation of the Early Steps’ ethos. They are committed to making every child they provide care for feel part of their childcare family.

With a home from home environment in mind they chose to follow The Curiosity Approach to children's care and learning. This approach brings curiosity, awe, and wonder into early childhood and this helps create and nurture the thinkers and doers of the future. 

They are proud to have achieved The Curiosity Approach 

accreditation and they are the FIRST accredited setting in the whole of the Dudley Borough.
