Our ethos

At Bramfield Stepping Stones, we provide the activities, and the children make their own choices: we don’t make their decisions for them. And this is why…

A parent once told us, “My child doesn’t seem to do very much at pre-school. He never brings home any pictures.” She was right. Her child didn’t often choose to participate in art and craft activities. However…

ButterflyCaterpillar spottedHe particularly enjoyed our activity on ‘Mini Beasts’ and could intricately describe the lifecycle of a caterpillar…

 

Tangerines

He was adept at counting out the cups at snack time, and knew that if he was asked to choose eight pieces of fruit and had chosen five, she would need another three pieces…

 

Jug emptyHe knew from the water tray that the contents of the litre jug over-filled the pint carton…

Duplo croppedHe used the Duplo to invent the most amazing machines, which she always designed with a purpose in mind…

 

sandpit…and he once drew a “monster with ten arms and big sharp teeth” in the sand…

 

But, no, he hardly ever painted a picture to take home.

So, we would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance to all those parents whose child may never choose to make a Mother’s Day card, or a decoration for the Christmas tree.

We like to think that, instead, you’ll find lots to celebrate and enjoy with your child – every day.
