“We have 17 month old twins that are enrolled at First Steps. My husband and I love that I can drop the kids off in the morning and he can pick them up in the afternoon and we do not have to worry about them throughout the day. We know they are in good hands. They have a great curriculum and enjoy going there. The teachers are very nice and spend quality time with the kids. We get children s daily activity sheets and it s nice to know that they aren t just playing with toys all day long. They are actually doing constructive activities that are the building blocks as they move up through the program and move onto the next age level classroom. It s always nice to get new fridge decorations too! We love it at First Steps and couldn t ask for a better place to bring our kids and group of people!“
Preschool (3 years to 4 years)
The older children have more structure in their day. They will also receive breakfast, 2 snacks and a catered lunch. The morning consists of a curriculum program that is tailored to each classroom, which consists of art, fine motor, gross motor, language, calendar, music, dramatic play, science, math, and manipulative toys. (A more detailed listing of the schedule is posted in each classroom for parent review.) Each of these areas will help the child develop skills that will prepare them for school. Always remember that the many sheets that come home from school are important to them and the learning is done from the process not the product. The curriculum that we use will have weekly reports that are sent home. It is important to review these letters because it will have requests for supplies and the dates that they are needed. We encourage the parents to ask questions and be involved in what we do daily. These children are encouraged to have good dental hygiene and are allowed to bring in a labeled toothbrush and toothpaste so that they can brush after meals.
