Good Beginnings Bronze Award
June 2018 the Stepping Stones team worked really hard to achieve the Bronze Good Beginnings: Early Years Autism-friendly setting award. In the future we will be working towards achieving the Silver award.
The staff had to gather evidence to create a portfolio to present to the Good Beginnings team; they spent the year updating their knowledge, developing their skills and attending various training courses. To celebrate our wonderful achievement, we invited parents in to see us being presented with our certificate.
