The strategic plan for the future is designed to advance the development and education of children below compulsory school age. The charity will do this through working in partnership with their parents, professionals and the community and providing safe, wondrous Early Years education and care. Giving parents the opportunity to return to education, training and employment and children the opportunity to be the best they can be.
Three stands to this plan have been developed in conjunction with Trustees, the senior management Team and all staff to ensure First Steps (Bath) is able to meet the challenges of changes of service delivery and funding.
1. To grow as social enterprise nurseries, enhancing social benefit and social impact.
2. To add additional income generating services that fit with First Steps Mission.
3. To use income from service delivery and through fundraising to ensure that every family is able to access preventative services that support positive parenting and loving relationships with their child.

"I want to highlight the importance of the centres as a place to go with my family, to receive help and to be able to talk to other mums and staff, and to know that my children are in an educational, safe and fun space."
