First Steps was an amazing experience for my son and for us. He started the school as a shy, quiet kid, and left the school as a confident, talkative, and "ready to conquer the world kid. The teachers at First Steps are caring, loving, and fun. The curriculum is perfectly tailored for each age group. My son started at First Steps on the toddler side and went through preschool (ages 3, 4, 5) at the school before starting at his current elementary school. The kindergarten program is fantastic! He learned so much during that year in preparation for elementary school that his current teacher is providing him with advanced materials since he has already learned so much from First Steps! I would recommend First Steps to any parent looking for a loving, nurturing and learning experience for their child while having a peace of mind that they are in good hands!
