Our Early Childhood Program

At Little Steps Pre-K, we’re committed to partnering with families to meet the needs of young children in our community. Our caring teachers establish safe, loving, Christian learning environments and plan hands-on learning experiences that lay the foundation for future school success. Our early childhood programs are based on the philosophy that children learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process and given opportunities to practice independence, cooperation, and problem solving. Throughout our school day, we focus on helping children grow in all areas of development – emotional, social, cognitive, physical, and spiritual.

It's a privilege to work with young children, and as a staff, we want each child to learn more about their faith, themselves, and their world. The knowledge and skills children learn in these early years will serve them well in future classroom and life experiences. We look forward to partnering with you to meet the needs of your growing child!


The early childhood program at Little Steps Pre-K is founded on research-based, developmentally appropriate practices. This means that all aspects of our program are age-appropriate, culturally appropriate, and individually-appropriate.


Spiritual Development: We learn that Jesus loves us.

We learn that Jesus loves us. The most important truth young children can learn is how much Jesus loves them! Our youngest students learn Bible stories and apply what they lean to daily life. These Biblical truths provide the foundation on which all learning takes place. 

Social Development: We learn to work together.

It is vital that children encounter a wide range of social experiences in early childhood. This is how they learn to work with others productively, as well as how to independently solve problems that arise in interactions with their peers.

Emotional Development: We manage & express our emotions.

Emotional intelligence is a life skill that must be intentionally fostered during early childhood years. Teachers coach children in the language and skills they need to regulate their emotions and respond in appropriate ways.

Cognitive Development: Curious about God's creation.

God created children to be incredibly inquisitive about the world around them. They are eager to actively observe, interact, problem solve and experiment as they make sense of this world. These experiences build a strong cognitive foundation for on-going learning.

Physical Development: We increase our motor skills.

Young children's physical development is connected to all other developmental domains, therefore this area gets special focus in our classrooms and playgrounds. Early childhood is the optimal time to refine children's large motor skills as they learn to manage and control their growing bodies.
