Childcare and Learning Center


Trust us to care for and nurture your children

Give your child a head start

Get peace of mind knowing your child is safe, healthy, and nurtured

You want your child to be well cared for even when you are not with him or her. At Step By Step Childcare and Learning Center you can feel confident that your child is not only protected, but is also getting a strong start on his or her education.

One of the most important decisions you will ever make as a parent is choosing who will care for your child when you are at work. This choice can impact the health, safety, and happiness of your child now, and his or her growth, health, and intellectual or emotional development well into the future.


We understand not only how important this decision is to you, but also how difficult it can be to make when you are facing the wide array of available options.

You can rest assured that we are dedicated to giving your child not only a safe place to be while you are away, but also a strong educational foundation. Your child is welcomed into our group as an individual. His or her potential to grow, thrive, and develop is nurtured through:

• A curriculum of experiences, learning, and social interaction

• Plenty of play

• Nutritious snacks

• Caring, experienced, and safety trained staff
