Reviews

“I love this school. First Steps Nursery school was the best decision i made for my children. The school is always clean and well organized even with all the classrooms full and active with play and multiple centers are open for the kids to keep them engaged. The staff is friendly and well prepared to keep the children safe, active and engaged. A warm and safe environment. My kids love their summer camp program, it has much more to offer then most summer camp programs out there. The leadership of the staff and management speaks for it self. i can call at any time and the teachers update me on my kids day promptly. I highly recommend First Steps. This preschool has everything a parent wants for their child. A Happy Parent!“

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.
