First Steps

Two Year Old Provision

Provision for 2-3 year olds at Epsom Primary and Nursery School is called First Steps. We are passionate about providing children with rich and stimulating learning environments both in their classrooms and outside. First steps children have their own space within the main nursery building and an outdoor area shared with the Nursery children. In addition the children explore the wider school environment visiting the school field, cookery room, enchanted learning and technology suite and the playground.

The ratio of staff is 1 member of staff to 4 children in line with EYFS statutory requirements. Learning through play and exploration is a priority, each child is assigned a key person who ensures the opportunities provided meet their needs.


Topics covered throughout the year include nursery rhymes, seasons, weather, animals, people who help us, transport, dinosaurs and celebrations. Topics are chosen to meet children’s needs and interests but also to link with key events throughout the school year.

We welcome both FEET (Free Early Education for Two Year Olds), funded or fee-paying families.


New and prospective families are invited to visit the school by attending our open mornings in October and November. Alternatively, tours can be arranged by contacting the school office. Simply contact us using the link below.
