First Steps

The First Steps playgroup is for 6–36-month-old children and their caregivers. In this group, families work together to build healthy attachment and bonding. Teachers provide support so that children can continue to develop their cognitive and emotional skills, while building friendships with the other children. Activities include free play time, literacy education, arts and crafts, dancing, games, and snack time.

During the school year, the Homework Club is offered to Kindergarten – 5th graders each school day and emphasizes literacy and academics in a fun, social environment.

After homework, children play outdoors, create art projects, and learn new games.
