Welcome to First Steps at Sampford Peverell

At Sampford Peverell C of E Primary School, we are delighted to be able to offer our facilities at First Steps to children aged between 2 and 4 years of age. Our aim is to help the children to mix socially and to develop through a wide range of experiences and activities in a safe and happy environment.

We use the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework to plan and provide a range of play activities which help children to make progress in each of the areas of learning and development. With the emphasis on learning through play, activities on offer include imaginative play, baking, singing, painting, water play, craft, junk modelling, maths activities, construction and dressing up.

Each week we set up carefully planned provision, with opportunities for both free flow and circle time, providing both adult led and child initiated learning.

Please see the separate First Steps tab at the top of the page for more information!


At Sampford Peverell we use Tapestry, the interactive online Learning Journal, to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, building up a record of your child's experiences during their time with us.

We encourage you to add to your child's learning journal, adding observations from home where you have been impressed with your son or daughter's learning
