Join Us at First Step Academy Where We Love Helping Your Little Ones Learn!

Changes happen fast and furious in a young child’s life, so it’s important to foster a sense of stability. First Step Academy provides the routine that young ones require while providing a safe environment in which to learn, make friends and have fun. Your child will spend the majority of their day learning, from the basics of the alphabet to writing and math skills. They’ll also spend up to two hours a day outside, weather permitting. We want your child to have a great time and look forward to each day they spend with us.
