Proud to be rated Outstanding by Ofsted
Stepping Stones Pre-School is a registered charity, welcoming children from 2 years to school age. We have two sites; MARESFIELD and BUXTED.
Maresfield is open 48 weeks of the year - 8am to 6pm
Buxted is open 38 weeks of the year - 9am to 3pm
We are a fully inclusive setting, welcoming all children from two to five years old. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and offer a full range of play-based learning opportunities, both inside and outdoors. We also have a Forest School.
We have strong links with local primary schools and this supports children as they move into formal education.
We welcome visits by prospective parents - please call the office on 01825 765241 if you would like to come and have a look round either (or both) of our sites.
In September 2011 Stepping Stones Maresfield was judged by Ofsted as 'Outstanding' and again in October 2015.
In January 2019 Stepping Stones Buxted was rated "Good" by Ofsted.
