We encourage all parents and their children to tour First Steps to get a feel for our child care facility and the daily routine of each classroom. We are open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. During the tour, parents will also have the opportunity to meet and interact with the classroom teachers.
If your family decides to join First Steps, we will give you an enrollment folder which contains the following forms that need to be completed and returned prior to your child’s first day of attendance.
*Please note that your child’s Health Report must be completed and signed by your child’s physician no later than 90 days after the first day of attendance.
A non-refundable registration fee of $75 per child or $100 per family is required with a completed pre-registration form for your child or children. This could be immediate enrollment, adding your child’s name to a waiting list, or securing a place for an infant. The first week’s tuition fees are due the Friday before your child’s first day at First Steps. [Learn about Child Care Rates and Online Payments Online Payments]
