Here at First Steps Everglade Babies we are a team of dedicated teachers who are passionate about providing a fun, loving, nurturing and educationally stimulating environment for your baby. We value that it is such an important decision about where to enrol your baby so we strive to provide the highest quality care and education and to support you through the settling transition as best as we can.

We pride ourselves on extending children’s learning through play as well as understanding that each child is a unique individual. Our programme is very culturally inclusive and we strongly value parent-teacher partnerships, working towards your child in reaching their full potential. You can trust that the children in our care are loved, secure, settled, relaxed, happy, safe and age-appropriately challenged. We are also very proud of our fantastic, large and natural outdoor area for the children to explore which has recently been refurbished.

Our qualified staff drives a fantastic programme specifically designed to extend on the children’s interests and extend learning through play.

We also practice primary care giving where your baby will have a key teacher responsible for all their care needs and special moments. This builds secure relationships to allow us to support your child as an individual to reach their full potential. This is a lovely home like centre that is truly the best place possible to begin your child’s life long learning journey.

We have an open-door policy so please feel free to pop in any time as we would love to show you around or call our Centre Manager for a chat.


We are excited to offer our families access to Storypark e-portfolios. They are a great way to keep up to date with what you child is doing while at the centre. You can log in to the secure platform wherever you are in the world to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities.

Parent Feedback:

“My impression of First Steps Everglade Babies was wow – I’m a first time Mummy returning to Fulltime work. It has been hard work looking for a day care for my 13 month old daughter, but when we entered First Steps she said “WOW”. I absolutely love the atmosphere! It’s friendly and colourful, the teachers are very friendly, loving and nurturing; everything I am looking for.

“My daughter is currently visiting and starts in two weeks. She is settling in and loving it. This centre and the staff have made me feel so much more at ease with placing my daughter in day care as I have been struggling with the decision. Thank you :)”

“I must say that I really like friendly staff members in Everglade Babies. That is one of the reason why I have decided to enrol Hannah in your centre. I feel really relieved that I have found “the” centre for Hannah.”
