Our infant rooms are designed for ages six weeks and up to one year. They're safe, nurturing and peaceful environments for the tiniest ones in our centre.


Toddlers are so much fun! Our little ones from ages one to two enjoy our toddler rooms, specially designed for safety, waddles and toddles, and a whole lot of fun!


We refuse to believe in the "terrible twos!" Our two-year-olds are full of giggles, energy and adventure with plenty of exploration space and vibrant games for discovery!


Threes + Pre-K

Our three-year-olds and pre-K children enjoy preschool in a dynamic learning environment. We focus on education, growth, socialization, exploration and the joy of student life!



At First Step Learning Centre, we believe well-defined policies, expectations, discipline strategies and safety regulations ensure a healthy, nurturing environment in which children can grow and thrive!

Welcome to our happy place!

What Our Parents Have to Say...

MaKayla joined the center in November of 2022 and I have seen such a huge difference in her developmental and social skills. Compared to her reactions with her previous care, she was very reserved and very cautious when I would leave, but within weeks of her starting at First Step, she did not want to leave. I have observed her while she is not watching, and it warms my heart to see how happy she is. She began walking here and now she is beginning to speak sentences, even using a few Spanish words, which I am soooo amazed by.  I love Ms. Maria and Ms. Amelia and so does MaKayla. She wiggles herself out of my arms so she can run to them. This eases my mind that she is loved and well taken care of. As small as it may be, but I also appreciate that the office staff knows her by name.  Believe it or not you all are my village! Thank you so much!!!
