A Warm Welcome From Footprints Pre School and Nursery

Footprints is a fun and stimulating environment for children with a warm and friendly atmosphere. We place a high emphasis on learning through play and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

We are a part of Ashford Play Centre Ltd and share our premises with our sister company Imagine Soft Play Arena. We have distinct and individual rooms for all ages and activities, including a large garden of approximately 1 acre.

We encourage our children to be self confident and independent. We develop social skills and promote sharing, taking turns and being generally thoughtful and caring towards others. We are active members of the national project, Every Child A Talker (ECAT), promoting early speech, language and communication.

Our fully qualified staff are completely dedicated to the children and are thoughtful and sympathetic to their individual needs.

Your children can start with us from as young as 3 months and stay with us until they are ready for primary school. Free funded places are available for eligible 2 years old and all 3 to 4 year olds.


We know all children are different and our responsibility to accommodate each child’s needs when settling into a new nursery environment. You can choose to start with a free taster session. At such time we can work with you to decide what is best for you and your child.

We are open from 7:45am to 6:00pm for 52 weeks a year excluding weekends and Bank Holidays. The time your child spends with us can be fully flexible, we strive to accommodate every parent’s wishes and fit with their varying routines.
