Hello to all of our families and friends.

We hope that you are well and looking forward to better times ahead.

We have really missed seeing everyone here at Stepping Stones this Spring and Summer. Having had only 24 of our usual 70+ children regularly accessing our sessions since June we have experienced a very different end to this academic year.

Many thanks to all of you who took the time to stay in touch and share with us some wonderful photos on Tapestry. We have greatly valued the weekly phone updates and have been delighted to see the progress in your children’s skills.

We are sending all of our very best wishes to the 33 children starting at their new schools in September. Thank you for sharing your children with us, it has been a privilege to work with you and them. Please remember to send us photos of your child in their school uniform and keep us informed of how well they are doing.

In our continued efforts to keep everyone safe we will only be offering space in session to children not attending another childcare setting for the remainder of 2020. We appreciate that having to choose between limited hours with us and more time at another setting has not been easy. We will miss those children not returning to Stepping Stones in September but we will continue to offer you our support and the settings any Outreach required.

Stepping Stones will be closing on Wednesday for the Summer break until 1st September. Please do not hesitate to phone or email if you have any queries but be aware that there will be limited cover in the office over this period.

This has been, without doubt, the strangest of times. We have had much to celebrate this year with another Outstanding  Ofsted and the Bristol Standard accreditation. Covid 19 has caused us all much anxiety and brought disruption to our usual methods of working.  We have however adapted well and can look forward to being back in September and working with many more of you again.

Enjoy the Summer!

Stay well and Stay safe

Debbie and all of the Team at Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones is an Opportunity Group for children with special needs in the West Wiltshire area. “Special Needs” being the term we use for identifying children who will benefit from specific therapy and support to help meet their potential. Children from birth to five, with varying levels of need attend the group. Stepping Stones operates as the District Specialist Centre for West Wiltshire. 

Parents are welcome to contact us directly, but most children have been referred to Stepping Stones by a Paediatrician, Health Visitor or other professional. 

Children come here to have a fuller assessment of their needs and to be helped and encouraged to learn and develop through play.
