First Step Philosophy


  • We recognize that each child is a unique individual worthy of the opportunity to reach his or her potential.

    We celebrate the diversity each child brings to our program.  All children will be nurtured in a positive environment where they are actively engaged in play and involved in activities that develop peer interaction, foster communication skills, enhance self-esteem and encourage the overall development of the child.

    We recognize and respect all cultural diversity.  We welcome the opportunity to share family traditions.  When addressing holidays we will discuss the secular aspects and will not put forward any one holiday as the primary holiday.
