First Steps Nursery at New Mills

Our New Mills site is purpose built inside and comprises of four base rooms for children, a sensory room and a music area. The layout of the rooms encourages independence and freedom of choice and having extra rooms gives us the opportunity to work individually with children when needed or in small groups.

We have an outdoor area with a small artificial grassed area for our babies, a soft play space and an area including the mud kitchen for children to explore.  Children are also taken on walks on a regular basis into the local community, the meadows and the Torrs.  Our older children access the library, Forest School on a regular basis and we offer weekly swimming lessons.

All our meals are cooked fresh on premises by our two chefs who source the produce locally.  The children enjoy an excellent range of different meals such as roast dinners, casseroles, cottage pie, fish pie, salmon and broccoli bake, cheesy veg bake, turkey jambalaya, lasagne, etc.  Tea is a lighter meal such as home made soup, savoury pancakes, toasties, etc. which again are all cooked on premises.  All our meals are nutritionally balanced and are followed by either fruit, yoghurt or a traditional pudding.  Children are also offered a healthy mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack.

We have an excellent Ofsted report with outstanding features.
