First Steps Women’s Centre

‘To Provide Early Years Childcare through a friendly, secure and stimulating environment’

First Steps Women’s Centre (FSWC) provides childcare for mothers or carers that are attending one of the many brilliant courses we offer at our Centre.

Our Childcare facility is a very large room that has been completely refurbished and renovated in July 2015. It has an onsite sandpit, library, lots of toys with stimulating activities all designed to provide children with a healthy and energising environment.

All our childcare staff are trained and qualified to look after your child. Our role is to take away the worry and stress whilst you can concentrate and enjoy learning and making friends.

Today we welcomed the Mums and children to our first "Settling In" day where they can get a feel for their new surroundings and meet the Creche team.

Everyone was very relaxed and the children settled very quickly, making new friends and playing with new toys!

All listening     

Wee smiler

Another busy day in our Creche! 

The Mums and Children had a great time singing along to all the nursery rhymes today.

The Children had great fun playing with new toys and new friends. Not a tear in sight - result!

  • The staffs are amazing, and it’s good to have him so close by.
  • The professionalism of the staff and their attention to detail.
  • Lovely friendly staff
  • Friendly, Welcome
  • I like people they are friendly. I want to thank First Steps for giving me the opportunity to do my course and to take care of my baby. Lovely people, teacher, and nice friends to talk to.
  • They are very attentive to the children and provide food and change baby’s nappies.
  • I don’t have nothing to say, everything is good.
  • Mostly I like the way they care for kids and the activities.

  • Their Friendly Atmosphere.
  • My daughter loves to come here. Keep going that way.
  • Friendly
  • I like the staff; people are great, and activities very interesting.
