Following government advice, Friday 20th March will be our last day where we are open to all children. This is for the forseeable future. We are however remaining open to children of key-workers and to any vulnerable children (those with an EHCP and/or those with a named social worker). We must stress that you must only bring your child in if it is essential and they cannot be cared for at home. This is to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. We are open our normal hours and will continue to be open throughout holiday periods. Please contact us if you will be requiring childcare and/or if you no longer require booked places. This is so that we can ensure the minimum possible number of staff in the building. 

Thank you for your co-operation with this and we hope to see you all back soon,

Stay safe and stay indoors.

Best wishes, 

All the staff at Stepping Stones xx

important news!



Update of closure!

We have made the decision that we are going to remain closed for the day.
We have no given time that the water supply will be back on and it could be off for up to 6 hours so we feel this is the best decision so that everyone knows and can arrange their childcare.
Woodbridge and Croft are closed too.
We are so so sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused everyone. 
We will be open fingers crossed tomorrow but a staff member will be on site from 7 o clock to ensure everything is ok.


Important news!!!!

There has been a burst water pipe in Alfreton meaning that there is no water.
Unfortunately we are unable to open without a water supply.
Severn Trent water are trying to fix the problem as soon as possible and we will open as soon as we possibly can.
Can we please ask that you do not bring your children first thing this morning. We will keep you updated when the water supply is back on.
We are so sorry but this is completely out of our hands.
