End of an Era - Next Steps to School for the Hawkins family

Our Early Years Education team always share a great sense of pride, getting the Pre School children ready for big school, followed by sadness as they leave. This year has been particularly poignant.

The Hawkins family finally left us after 10 years at Next Steps Childcare on The Royal Bath and West Showground.

Karen Thayer Early Years Practitioner who has looked after all four children said “It has been an honour taking care of the family throughout their time with us. We have had great fun and they are a pleasure to care for”. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Ed & Rowen Hawkins for their support, and wish the entire family well for the future.
