My three year old has been at First Steps a year and a half and he is already recognizing some three letter words. He can count…not just count to 10 or 20 but he actually grasps the concept of counting items. He counts his crackers every day. He has loving teachers whom he visits on the way to his classroom and who give him cookies even after he graduates from their class. Every teacher gives me special attention when I drop the kids off and make themselves available to chat with me and discuss my son’s development or needs on a daily basis. The director of the school, Ms. Peggy, is the person I go to when I have those “wits-end” moments in child rearing. She has years of experience working with children and is always willing to share a tip or a trick that has worked for her. And the best part is, they practically potty trained my son for me. He was fully potty trained just a little after he turned 3 and most of the work was done by his teachers. I think being around the other children going through the same thing helps tremendously. I feel very grateful for First Steps and recommend them to everyone I know.
