We believe that young children are developing in several areas simultaneously and that each of these developmental areas is equally important. The intellectual capabilities and social / emotional development of a child are interwoven. To augment one, the other one has to be developed. Using whole child instruction, our curriculum strives to meet the individual needs and assist the development of children in all developmental domains: intellectual, social, emotional and physical.

These include:

  • Creative art and Problem-solving Skills — to enhance decision making capability.
  • Coordination skills — activities using large and small muscles
  • Music and Dance skills — songs, rhymes and rhythms
  • Aerobics and Swimming — fosters athletic ability
  • This dynamic approach is based on the theory of Multiples Intelligences, developed by Dr. Howard Gardner, a psychologist at Harvard University. What this means is that at First Steps your child will learn not only through reading, writing and Math but also through music, art, play, building, moving, engaging in outdoor learning experiences and interacting with other children. Our curriculum is designed to meet all children where they are developmentally and to assist them in continuing to develop to their full potential.
