First Steps Roko, York

First Steps provide Ofsted approved child care to children from 2 months to pre school age in our warm and friendly nursery situated within the grounds of the ROKO Health Club in York.

Our nursery is open to everyone but in addition for ROKO members attending fitness classes we also offer discounted sessional crèche services in our purpose built child friendly building.

Our nursery staff team are experienced Early Years Educators and use a wide range of activities, toys and games to stimulate a child’s confidence whilst having lots of fun.

Additionally we run an exciting kids holiday camp around the health club for children from 4 to 12 years. Our holiday camps offer busy parents full peace of mind whilst their children enjoy making friends, challenging games and activities within the sports club and beyond.

Volleyball, Music, Singing, Party Games, Team Building, Shows, Rounder, Arts & Crafts. 

Hot lunches are available for a small charge, children are welcome to bring packed lunches. Our day starts at 8.30am and finishes at 5.30pm, earlier drop offs and later collections are possible by arrangement.


We offer sessional creche services to club users at discounted rates. Block booking cards are available from the nursery and offer an even better rate for regular users.

Many of our nursery customers are former creche users who trusted us with their little ones while they went to the gym and over time. This relationship evolved through our parent partnerships and from the bond our highly skilled staff forge with each child in our care.


Meet Our Lovely Team

Each member of our team has been expertly trained, to ensure your child receives the highest quality of care whilst they are with us.



I have worked in childcare for over 5 years and love being able to plan fun activities to help the children develop the skills they need for later on in life. outside of work I enjoy spending time with my partner and family and going on day trips.


My role as Deputy Manager means that I am able to support Hannah on a day to day basis with Management tasks. An when she is not in the office I step up to cover the business. In the room that I manage, I love to see the children grow and develop whilst they are happy in our care. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my partner and family and I love to visit the seaside.


Level 6 - Pre-School Room Leader 6 years in childcare The things I like about working in a nursery is seeing how the children develop and knowing that I played a part in that child’s first few years of their life. There is nothing more rewarding. When I’m not working I really enjoy spending time with my friends especially going for weekends away, a lot of holidays (hot ones of course) and going to concerts …mainly Olly Murs.
