Goal and Philosophy

First Steps strives to support families in their effort to ensure the wholesome social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development of their children by providing high quality educational care.

To that end, creative play opportunities are designed to enhance the growth and development of each child First Steps Early Education Center Imagein a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment. Through these experiences, First Steps builds on a child’s current knowledge: stretching their thinking, extending what they know about themselves, how they relate to others and the world around them.

We believe that each child is a unique and special human being. First Steps creates a welcoming environment that reflects children’s families, interests, cultures and differing abilities.

Each Child:

  • is respected as an individual
  • can develop and grow at his or her own pace

  • finds encouragement to realize his or her fullest potential
  • receives personal attention from caring and responsive adults

It is our belief that each child has the ability and desire to learn and grow in all the developmental areas. We are here to facilitate those experiences and support each child in this endeavor.
