A Child’s First Steps Preschool offers an exciting, challenging, and age appropriate curriculum.  In our program the children will have experiences in cultural awareness, music, language, mathematics, science, cooking, arts and crafts, gross and fine motor activities, field trips, and MORE!  They will learn to play and work together as a group, to share experiences with a group, and to pick up toys and materials they have used, unassisted.  We feel that all of this will provide a well rounded curriculum that will further your child’s development.

Specific areas of emphasis change from month to month and year to year.  We will try to keep you informed of those areas we are specifically studying at any given time via our Newsletter and Calendar.
