Small Steps Child Development Center


Small Steps, a ministry of First Baptist Church, is a half-day preschool for one-year-olds (walking) through pre-kindergarten four-year-olds. We offer a comprehensive, academic curriculum (Pinnacle) in a Christ-centered environment.

The children have a chance to form friendships and develop their ability to communicate with others. In addition, they will also enhance their physical growth and motor skills through play, music class, computer lab, art, and other activities. Their spiritual growth is aided through prayer, Bible stories, and chapel.

Classes are scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. each day.  Classes offered include the following options:  1's and 2's three-day option (Tues/Wed/Thurs), 3's three-day option (Mon/Tues/Thurs) or five-day option (Mon-Fri), 4's five-day option (Mon-Fri).  Also offered to those enrolled in the program is an extended day option from 12:00-2:30 p.m. on the days they come to school.  Mother's Day Out is offered from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for all ages on Monday and Friday.  Please click on the link below for more information about the program and for the fees.
