What Parents are saying about us….
“We shopped around for childcare and found that First Step was affordable, but more importantly, gave us peace of mind that our son was in a smaller center with qualified, caring teachers. He’s now in the preschool classroom and we’re thrilled by what he learns every day!”
“We had been struggling to manage our older son’s behaviors at home once his sister was born, after 3 months in the Toddler Classroom, he was gentler with her, using his words to communicate and following directions so much better!”
“I love getting smiley pictures of my baby and seeing her artwork each week, I get a thorough update when I come to pick her up, so I know that she is having a great day away from Mom!”
