First Steps Nursery
First Steps was the first purpose built Nursery in Irvine. It was built in 1996 and the manager remains the same as when we opened.
The manager is Mrs June Reid who has over 20 years experience in working in a child care environment as well as a degree in Childhood Practice. June is a mother of 5 and a Grandmother to 3 children.
The Assistant Manager is Mrs Diane Roberts who again has over 20 years experience working in childcare. Diane has been at First Steps for 16 Years and holds a PDA in Childhood Practice.
Diane is also a Mother to 3 children but as of yet not a grandmother.
We work in partnership with North Ayrshire Council to deliver Ante-Pre and Pre School education offering quality experiences for ALL the children in our care.
Fantastic Nursery. My LB who is nearly 4 has attended First Steps since he was a baby at 6 mths old. The lovely ladies have looked after him (amazingly well) all the way thro his nursery journey from the 0-2 baby room, 2-3 room and now in the 3-5 room. Hes currently doin his anti preschool year and loves it just as much as he ever has. He will be doing his pre school year here too. It's great knowing he's well looked after and loves going. The hours that the nursery are open also suit my work which is another great bonus. My new baby LB will be starting his First steps journey after Easter
BRILLIANT NURSERY! I can’t thank the manager and staff enough for making my little boy feel comfortable! He’s settled in so well and to see him walk through the door and enjoy being there just puts our minds at ease!
All the staff are so friendly and welcoming, I would definitely recommend.
