Footsteps is a pre-school for children aged 2 to 4.

We encourage learning through purposeful play to build your child’s confidence and awareness as they learn to explore in a welcoming, safe and stimulating environment.

We aim to nurture and inspire the children in our care, and will guide them as they grow in independence, imagination, and ability. We strive to fulfill this mission through listening, understanding, communicating and planning. We will respect individuality while fostering a strong sense of community and developing the bonds of friendship.

Opening hours:

Monday to Friday
9:15 am – 12:15 pm

Optional lunch club until 1:15pm

Great Dell Scout Hut
Welwyn Garden City

What parents are saying about us

“We would thoroughly recommend Footsteps. It is a really special place. Our son absolutely loved it and looked forward to going in every day. We watched him blossom and learn so much during his time there, and that is definitely down to the wonderful atmosphere and lovely staff.”

– Jenny and Luke

“On his first day Jack ran straight in and said “bye Mummy”. Since starting 3 days a week he tells me that he loves Footsteps and even complains that he has to drop his big brothers off at school first. The staff are very helpful and friendly and I know that he is happy there without me.”

– Jack’s mum

“Oscar looks forward to going to Footsteps on his days in and often comes home singing songs he’s learnt or tells me who he has played with. The staff are amazing with the children and they put a lot of thought into the activities each day. Would definitely recommend Footsteps.”

– Oscar’s mum
