About us

About us

Our aim is to make sure that Baby Steps is a learning centre where all children feel safe and loved.

Each day we learn so much from the children. They love unconditionally, forgive easily, are uncomplicated and are excited about life. They remind us to “stop and smell the roses”.

At Baby Steps we create an environment conducive for optimal exploration, learning and growth. A happy child is a learning child.

We offer a fun filled stimulating programme, designed to meet all educational needs. Our school readiness programme is advanced and you are assured that your child will be more than ready for formal schooling.

Our small classes provide your child with the much needed individual attention to promote optimal growth and development.

When your child attends Baby Steps your only problem will be, “they won’t want to leave”.

We have two schools based in Bedfordview, one that is now open in Germiston and one opening in Sandton (Linbro Park) in April 2020. Baby Steps currently has a dynamic Team of 42 staff members, each playing a vital role in the growth and development of our schools and children that attend them.

Our Vision

For our Children

“Wherever life might take our children, they will always look back at their early years fondly and know that they received the very best education and care possible.” – Tracey Urquhart

  • Small classes: To be able to have classes that combine whole class teaching, small group teaching and 1 on 1 teaching.
  • Continuous assessment: To assess children throughout the year. This is also an assessment on the teacher and the school as a whole. “Is the teacher teaching in a way that is working for each child?” “Are the children developing in all spheres?” “Is the school curriculum equipping the children for formal learning?” These assessments help us to see where the children are at and also reflect on our teaching and curriculum.
