I started working in childcare in 2008 and I hold a NVQ Level 3 in Childcare. I have a passion for helping the younger children and seeing them achieve their full potential by stimulating them with the different activities that we do. I’m currently working in the Little Steps room with a view to start my Level 4 Qualification in Management.

Room Teams


Tanya Downer – Little Steps Room Lead

I have been a Nursery Nurse since 2011 and I have my Level 3 NVQ in Childcare. I am the Room Lead for the Little Steps room at Little Stepping Stones Day Nurseries. I have previously worked in a baby room for 2 years. I really enjoy working with the younger age group, but also enjoy working with all ages. I particularly enjoy getting to know each & every child and helping them settle into nursery life and developing new skills.
