Stepping Stones is a registered charity: number 1023443. 


Events and what's on!

Our committee organises several fundraising events through the year: some are just for the children at Stepping Stones, whilst others are an opportunity for parents and people in the local area to socialise and have a great time for a good cause. 

Any questions or suggestions just talk to one of the team - any time!

Other ways to fundraise...

We know how busy parents and carers are, so we've also set up some very easy online ways to support us on a regular basis - hassle free!

Easy ways to support us...

We'd be so grateful if you felt able to sign up to one, or both, of these fundraising schemes. Every person who signs up really does make a huge difference to what we can continue to provide at Stepping Stones.

Local Lotto

Local Lotto is a weekly online lottery created to support local causes in the Daventry district. Tickets are £1 per week with 50% going to local good causes and prizes up to £25,000!


Our page on their website is here - - and it's quick and simple to sign up to a weekly direct debit. It's a nice one if you'd perhaps like better odds than the national lottery and want to enjoy knowing it's supporting us at the same time!


Good luck for anyone who signs up, and THANK YOU!!

Signing up to these online fundraising tools doesn't cost you anything yourself, but it raises funds for us every time you buy something online!


Easy Fundraising

Our page on the Easy Fundraising website is here: -  - and you can add their "donation reminder" extension to your web browser, and also download their app so that it reminds you every time you're on one of their partner online shops. Some shops, like John Lewis,, Argos etc, pay quite a decent percentage (some even up to 5%)  every time you shop!

How does your support help?

Did you know that Stepping Stones is one of the first Pre-schools in the whole county to run a regular Forest School?


We have a really generous ratio of staff to children. The government requirement is for there to be one member of staff for every eight children, but Stepping Stones has one for every five. This means the team can focus whole-heartedly on every child and develop individual interests.


As well as making sure we can keep our really great ratio of 1:5 staff to children, we rely on fundraising for things like:


  •  Updating equipment and games.

  •  Vital training courses for staff.

  •  Investing in IT equipment.

  •  Ensuring there are enough staff to keep the Forest School running.

So please help as much as you are able.


Your support does brilliant things!
