Parent & Guardian Information

Recently awarded ‘OUTSTANDING’ by ofsted.

If you are looking for quality, outstanding and convenient childcare Stepping Stones Day Nursery is the nursery for you. Stepping Stones has been caring for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years for over 14 years. We are located a stones throw from the Metro Centre which makes us a great location for parents on the go!

Stepping Stones is a cosy, safe and loving environment where your child’s every need can be met. We are located conveniently minutes from the A1 which means we are very accessible from Team Valley, Gateshead, Newcastle and the surrounding areas. At Stepping Stones we cater for families from far and wide.

At Stepping Stones our aim is to provide your child with the tools to help them develop and thrive in an environment which is rich in happiness and adventure. Through exploring, imitating and playing your child will learn and develop in a rate that suits them. We have a large outdoor play area which has lately been improved by the building of a brand new canopy area with full safety surface which will allow your child to experience outdoor play in all weathers.

The nursery opening hours are from 8.00am-6.00pm but we are very lucky to offer parents a 7.30am start at Stepping Stone which can be pre arranged with a senior member of staff. We very much wish to cater for the needs of our parents and remain flexible with sessions. The nursery is open for 52 weeks per year excluding bank holidays. We offer a range of different sessions from full days to half days and we aim to remain flexible to parents needs.

At Stepping Stones we recognise that looking for and choosing a nursery can be a very hard decision for parents. Therefore we always encourage you to take the time to come and visit us:- we offer daily appointments where parents/carers can come and visit the setting and look around the building. You will be met a senior member of staff to answer all questions and put any worries at rest.

Having the experience of 14 years childcare behind us gives us the experience and understanding of children’s needs, we understand that the
early years are the most important in a child’s life and we aim to give them the stepping stones to develop and grow.
