Considering becoming a childminder?

Find out more about what it takes to become a childminder and how STEEP can help you with the process.

This programme is designed to support those new to teaching in the EYFS.

Our induction and mentoring programmes are tailored to meet the needs of EYFS NQTs & RQTs in nursery and reception.

STEEP is committed to supporting exceptional early childhood education for all.

We believe every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfil their potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, and provides the foundation for children to make the most of their own abilities and talents as they grow.
