Getting Involved ...

The Garden

Play in the garden is structured to develop specific skills. Each group has a separate time for garden play.
We have climbing frames, trikes, trucks, tunnels, balls, quoits, hoops, trampolines, slides and rocking toys to develop large motor skills of climbing, jumping and running.
We have a range of equipment, playhouses, dolls and pushchairs for home play. Children use sand and water to develop manipulative, creative and mathematical skills.
We have developed our garden also with areas where children can learn about growing plants and caring for birds. The children grow flowers, fruit and vegetables from seeds, have made bird baths and bird feeders and have also entered our garden into the "Portsmouth in Bloom" competition and have succeeded in winning awards each year.


Children are taken to Canoe Lake, the Rose Gardens, the beach, the library and Cumberland House museum. For their safety, younger children are always on reins or in buggies.
The frogs have a special trip to end their time with us here at Stepping Stones.

Events for Parents

Parents are invited to our sports afternoon which we hold each summer. We present singing and dancing displays for parents in the summer term and a nativity play at Christmas.

Holiday School

During the school holidays we run a program so older children can return in the school holidays.

Snack-time and Meals

We supply the children with a drink of either water or milk and a healthy snack.
The healthy snacks we provide are: fruit, bread sticks, toast, crumpets, pancakes, crackers and pitta breads etc.
We also provide hot and cold lunches and teas for your child at an extra cost.
