Step by Step teaching resources

Huge choice and more engaging resources with Hope

Step by Step is now part of Hope Education Early Years

Step by Step is renowned for providing inspirational, fun and educational Early Years resources aimed at children from 0-8 years to help them learn through play. In 2013, it joined with Hope Education to provide schools, nurseries, child-minders and Early Year’s groups in the UK with more choice, better service and the most affordable prices.

Our new bumper range enables a unique ‘one-stop-shop’ experience. We supply everything you could possibly need to engage your little learners from Role Play, Sand & Water and Construction equipment through to Art and Craft, early Maths and English resources and Furniture equipment. Plus, we now offer a selection of cleaning supplies to ensure your setting runs smoothly!

Our complete range continues to be tried and tested by our Little Experts, a group of young children eager to trial our products and share their views. We’ve also worked with Early Years experts like Helen Davenport, Senior Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, to ensure our resources adhere to the EYFS framework and provide you with confidence in our products and the assurance that they are not only exciting but are also high quality.
