Vickie Hardingham - Owner

Having worked at Little Steps for over 15 years, I never tire of seeing a child grow in both ability and confidence week by week through coming to our classes. It is a real pleasure and privilege seeing them develop in their early years. I am pleased to say, lots of children stay with us until they are nearly teenagers and watching them flourish and grow is amazing. Our classes are enjoyable, lively, challenging and every week is different.

I started working at Little Steps in 2012 and thoroughly enjoy my job and being part of such a wonderful team.  Working with children was always something I wanted to do, watching them grow and develop is something I love and I feel very privileged to be part of. In the time I have worked at Little Steps I have gained an NVQ level 2 in childcare and am also a qualified British Gymnastics Coach.

I have worked at Little Steps since 2009 and have a wealth of experience, building rapport with children and adults.  I love the variation that my job offers, with all ages ranging from babies to 10/11 year olds.  It is so rewarding to watch children grown through each of the classes and teach them gymnastic skills and see them develop and expand thier skills the older they get.
