Preschool Services at Lifesteps Early Education Centers

Children are born with a unique capacity and desire to learn. Preschool at Lifesteps' Early Education Centers nurtures that desire to develop a child’s leadership, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills through a variety of pre-designed curriculum in a preschool setting. Serving children with ALL abilities, including Autism Spectrum Disorders, individualized plans are developed for each child. Teachers challenge students to reach beyond their capabilities to develop, explore and grow, ready for a life-long experience of learning.

Lifesteps' preschool programs have earned the status of Private Academic Preschools by meeting strict licensing requirements. Morning and afternoon sessions are available 2, 3 or 5 days per week. Instruction is based on each child’s individual needs. Child Care (day care) services are also available for those families who need services beyond Preschool sessions.
