Our Curriculum

Preschool and Daycare

We use the A Beka curriculum, supplemented with Beyond Centers and Circle Time curriculum, Baby Doll Circle Time curriculum, Creative Resources for Infant and Toddlers curriculum, and Addison-Wesley Active Learning Series to promote academic learning.  In addition to this curriculum, our teachers emphasize phonetics, alphabet and number recognition, health, safety, manners, and dramatic play.

Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK)

First Steps offers the Florida Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program to eligible four-year-olds.  VPK is Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.  We also offer a wraparound schedule for working parents.  For a reasonable fee, your child can attend before and after school hours (6:30 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday).

VPK is 180 days and we closely follow the Orange County Public Schools schedule calendar for start and end dates, as well as holidays off.

Day Camps

We also provide day camps during the summer, spring, and winter breaks for elementary-aged children.  Daily activities as well as weekly field trips provide children with a fun and exciting time.

Additionally, day camps are provided during those days when OCPS is closed but First Steps is open.

About Our Facilities

First Steps is a private, Christian preschool and daycare located on the campus of Calvary Assembly of God in Winter Park.  We are fully accredited by the Association of Christian Teachers and  Schools (ACTS) and a member of Florida League of Christian Schools (FLOCS#4586).  We offer full day, year round care for children from ages eight weeks through five years.  Our caring and professional staff will give your child the finest care and education in a comfortable and attractive facility with a strong academic focus and high VPK scores.


First Steps is blessed with individual classroom settings, each designed to provide a state-of-the-art learning experience.  Each student is assigned to a self-contained, fun, and inviting classroom that is the base for daily activities.  Throughout the day, students rotate to age-appropriate indoor playrooms, outdoor playgrounds, and an indoor gymnasium.
