Small Steps Center’s mission is to provide the best quality education and care to all children in our community. Small Steps Center welcomes children and families of all cultural backgrounds and beliefs. We strive to provide an optimal learning experience for children, families, and staff. It is our priority to create a positive and caring atmosphere so that children feel safe and loved. We promote children’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development through learning, play, and positive relationships. A sense of positive self-esteem can only develop if a child feels as though they can succeed, and it is our mission to help all children succeed. Our team of educators is passionate and committed to “Building a Better Future for Children, Small Steps at a time.”

At Small Steps Center, we strongly believe that children learn best in an environment that offers opportunities to grow. We promote a safe and stimulating environment while allowing children to express themselves. A child’s mind is like a sponge as it absorbs information directly from their environment and uses that information to develop socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically. Our learning center allows children to develop close bonds with other children and adults in their lives. It is our goal that these bonds will help children become strong adults, and enable them to strive for success; both academically and socially. We believe respect for children, families, and diverse culture is a central component of teaching, and our process reflects that. It is our goal that we foster the growth of positive self-esteem and self-confidence in all children and families that we serve.
