Family First

First Steps centres are operated by Mums for the benefit of you and your family. Enjoy a safe, nurturing and happy environment where each child feels love, security and a sense of belonging.

We are a family owned extended hours Child Care Service for children aged from 6 weeks and offer an excellent pre-school and school readiness program for 3 year olds and onwards – offering warmth, support and innovative educational programs lead by qualified Educators and Early Childhood Teachers.

First Steps is comprised of two nurseries for children under two years old and three well-appointed playrooms for learning and developing the skills and knowledge of older children and pre-schoolers.

We aim to foster children’s natural love of learning by surrounding them with warmth within a beautiful, safe environment, indoor and out. Large learning spaces inside and creative spaces outside provide for the delivery of innovative educational programs.

You have created such an incredible environment for our kids to grow...

I’ve been blown away with all the staff at First Steps, and highly recommend the centre. They have created such a kind and safe environment for all of the children. And have created such an incredible environment for our kids to grow in all aspects of their development.

Forever grateful - 2 children & 7 years of care...

Today our son starts “big school”, which means the end of our time at First Steps. It was 7 years ago that we first walked through your doors with our first baby to meet you. It’s safe to say we never left.


We have been shown nothing but care and love – helping our 2 children to grow into the little rockets they are today.


We will be forever grateful to all of you, our family has gained so much from your training, knowledge and care.
