First Steps is a purpose-built nursery based in the local Children’s Centre in the inner-city area of Derby. We have three rooms: Sunflower for children aged 4 months to 2 years,  Poppy for those aged 2 to 3, and Bluebell for those aged 3 to 4. We have a lovely outdoor space for children to be active and engaged in the world around them and we encourage their curiosity through fun and interactive learning areas.
