“Our son had been going to First Steps since he was 10 weeks old. Recently we had to unenroll him since we were moving and we regret having to do so. The teachers are great, the staff is great, and our son learned so much during his time at this school. What my wife and I loved most about First Steps was that the kids were always learning. They were always engaged in some sort of fun activity. The teachers are interactive w/ the children and care about each and every student. I only wish that we could find another day care like First Steps and I wish they were closer because we would definately send our child back. So, if you are looking for a wonderful place to send your child, along w/ a very reasonable rate, send them to First Steps!“

Toddler (1 year to 2 years)

Our toddler room ranges in age from about 15 months to 24 months. Some of the qualifications for our “toddlers” is that they be walking, are off the pacifier and bottle, and are down to one nap a day. This classroom starts to introduce a structure to the day. They will have breakfast, 2 snacks and catered lunch. In this room we start to introduce a basic curriculum, the morning is filled with teacher-initiated activities that involve art, music, fine motor, large motor, sensory exploration, free play and story time. (A more detailed listing of the schedule is posted in the classroom for parent review.) The toddlers are introduced to sleeping on cots, as well as using cups and spoons. The children are still allowed to bring blankets and stuffed animals to sleep with so they have the comfort of home while they nap. In the afternoon we like to focus on children interaction and socialization. We believe that allowing the children to learn and develop from each other is just as important as learning from our teachers.
