The best nursery in Peterborough

Both of my daughter's attend Stepping Stones Nursery. I couldn't imagine sending them anywhere else. I looked around other nurseries before visiting this one and I knew straight away it was perfect for us. The staff are incredible; they are knowledgeable and very experienced and loved by the kids. My children learn so much by being there and have so many fantastic experiences. From growing veg, to building dens and fake fires to the trim trail and sandpit, and not forgetting tool school for the older kids. The nursery is expertly ran by Janet and Kay and this is clearly evident. The home cooked meals and snacks are nutritious and varied, leaving me confident my children are given a good diet with the opportunity to try new things. The nursery is very secure and everyone entering and leaving the premises is monitored. I can't recommend this nursery highly enough. I am so pleased I found them!

I wouldn't choose anywhere else.

My first son started at Stepping Stones at 1 years old in 2012 he loved it and grew with confidence before heading to school.
My 2nd son now goes and has the best time, especially with all the different outdoor space, forest garden being his favourite. He always comes home telling me about his busy day and the teachers who he has played with.
The staff are so friendly and very welcoming.
Always something exciting going on, that the fantastic staff have planned.
It's not my local nursery (I did veiw 2 local) but I'd drive double again just to get my son to Stepping Stones.
