Welcome to First Steps at Sampford Peverell

Welcome! First Steps is our pre-school at Sampford, which is taught by Mr Leaman and the team and overseen by the EYFS leader, Miss Dillon. It caters for children from the half term after their 2nd birthday right up until they start school with us in Reception. It sits with the Foundation Stage Unit, so there is lots of joint learning with our reception class; the classrooms are opened up to each other in the afternoons, meaning that the children learn and play together. Miss Dillon and Mr Leaman plan for the thematic learning together so that both classes jointly progress through a variety of exciting and child-led topics! We offer a safe, nurturing environment in which each individual child is recognised, valued and supported to achieve their potential through meaningful play experiences. We have a mixture of group sessions, free play and adult guided, offering children the chance to develop the skills they need in life – to explore, to play, to learn, to think, to express themselves and to learn to make friends!
Our session times are Monday to Friday, with a cost of £4.00 per hour. 
Morning - 8:45 - 12:00
Lunch      12:00 - 12:30
Afternoon 12:30 - 3:30
