Our Team

What really makes our nursery so special are the people who work for us. 

We value all of our staff and the important role they play in caring and supporting children’s learning.

Here is an introduction to those in charge of ensuring our nursery continues to thrive.

Ranjit – Nursery Proprietor / Manager
I started in childcare over 25 years ago before I had a family of my own, working for a franchise which provided gym activity classes for preschool children. I took a career break whilst my children were growing up, and returned to childcare once they became independant.  I have been the owner of a nursery business since 2006,  which has progressed to successfully opening Stepping Stones Birmingham in January 2010.  I am proud to say after all the hard work and commitment of our fantastic staff team we have been and remain to be rated “GOOD” by Ofsted ( latest – Jan 2019).  I am passionate about providing quality childcare within a “natural” stimulating environment. Working within a great management team, we are committed to working continuously to improve the service we provide in order to allow each and every individual, (which includes our children, parents, staff members) reach their full potential.

We operate on an open door policy with all our parents, and work in partnership to continuously improve the service we provide.

I find my job rewarding as I help children develop in all areas of learning. I work in the Pre-school room with children aged 3-5 years.
