First Steps Programs

We serve children ages 6 weeks through 5 years of age year round.

The US dept of education emphasizes the importance of development in language, cognition, social-emotional, physical and creativity as being the corner stones of early childhood education.

The staff at First Steps believe that all children develop at different stages and learn through different methods. We believe in providing a nurturing family environment for our children so that they can feel safe and comfortable.

We feel that once the child feels that he/she is part of a family, they can be confident and excel in their development. Our teachers encourage social, physical, language and cognitive development through reading, art, music, math, science, dance and play

Our curriculum is different in each classroom and based upon different themes such as holidays, weather, current events, NAEYC standards, Massachusetts Dept. of Early Education, U.S. Dept of Education, PBS etc.

We encourage language development in all of our classrooms and teach basic Spanish as well as sign language starting in our infant classroom.

Children enrolled in our program develop their social skills and learn sharing, cooperation, communication, manners and diversity.
