First Steps (Bath)

First Steps (Bath) supports over 500 young children and their families through two Children’s Centres, three nurseries and provide a range of family support. We support each child, their family, and the community to thrive by providing the best early years experience. Many of the young children with whom we work need additional help during their early years, to minimise the potential for learning and development delay, arising from poverty and/or difficult family circumstances.

Founded 1992
