First Steps Christian Preschool

At First Steps Christian Preschool, we seek to serve God by teaching, loving and caring for children. Each child is considered unique in his or her approach to learning. We strive to take each approach into consideration in providing the best possible environment for learning. Our goal is to reach as many children and families for Christ as possible by allowing Christ to be the center of our words and actions.
