Day nursery in Gornal Wood for children 0-12 years
Both of our nurseries have been refurbished to provide state of the art childcare facilities.
Early Steps Day Nursery 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.
Our Staff
Staff development is paramount, our nursery staff are given the opportunity to access Higher Education with our support. Furthermore, our staff is trained in Early Years and Childcare, Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding Children, Food Hygiene and Health & Safety.

We are working with our team to offer them NVQ Level 2 – 6 in Early
Years to encourage them to achieve Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) and Early Years Teacher Status.

This provides us with a fantastic opportunity to train our own staff
from the beginning of their career and help them to progress to senior job roles. Already, the increasing knowledge, skills and abilities of our
staff is having a positive impact on Ofsted results as our nursery has obtained a GOOD status in reports.

      The Curiosity Approach self-reflection toolkit enables Early Childhood settings to reflect on the quality of their provision. As a team, we embarked on a 12 month journey to create a culture of Curiosity, Awe & Wonder that is now deeply embedded within Early Steps Day Nursery.
