First Steps Nursery - Lowton

First Steps Nursery opened in 2002 and is situated in purpose built premises in the Lowton area of Warrington, Cheshire.

The nursery is open Monday – Friday from 7:15am – 6:30pm. The nursery has been thoughtfully designed to provide full day care for babies and young children, offering safe and secure enclosed indoor and outdoor play areas. 

Our aim is to provide a happy, stimulating and safe environment where all children can develop to their full potential. We believe that what is learned in early childhood is the foundation for a child’s journey through life. Each stage of development and learning is valued and respected in its own right. We believe every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfil their potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. 

We welcome all children aged 6 weeks to 5 years and endeavour to meet their individual needs. We have seven age specific rooms called babies, tweenies, teeny tinies, tinies, pre school, pre-school 1 and pre-school 2. All the pre-school children have access to an additional learning room/library. We accept children for 51 weeks a year. Children can also access a term time only place if they are eligible for a 15 hour/30 hour funded place. 

Children have continuous access to the separate outdoor areas from the age of 6 weeks with underwater themed play areas. Our secure outdoor area is a space where the children can climb, run and explore. We have recently renovated our outside play area. Pre School children now have access to 2 different areas. One has a large adventure pirate ship with tunnel slides etc and the other is a large grassed area where the children have access to many resources such as our construction toys and messy play area.

At First Steps Nursery we have highly trained, enthusiastic and friendly staff who provide a stimulating and loving environment for children, giving your child the best start in life. Our pre-school room has a qualified teacher working within it. We also have a qualified paediatric nurse working with our under 2's. The premises are equipped and maintained to the highest standards with excellent attention to health and safety. We have gained a Healthy Business Award from Wigan Council in recognition of the excellent well-balanced meals we provide. We have also gained a Level 5 Food Hygiene Rating in recognition of our excellent cleanliness standards within our main kitchens.
