What Parents say
  • First Steps Child Care Centre is more than a day care, it is a home away from home for my children and we could not be more thankful to be part of the First Steps family.

    Angela Cane
  • We are especially grateful for the times that First Steps has been flexible and accommodating to our families individual needs.

    Amanda D.
  • They provide our children with a safe and nurturing environment where they are engaged in structured meaningful activities that foster the skills they will need to be successful growing up.

    Katherine G.
  • We had many decisions to make we had our first child; day care was one of them. From the first day the teachers and administration at First Steps Child Care made our decision easy.

    Michelle H.
  • I live down the street from another day care but I choose to go the extra 5 mins to go to First Steps. I know it is a very reputable establishment and my son is well taken care of and safe there.

    Sandra B.
  • The place is always immaculate and safe! The teachers are well educated, my son has learned so much from going to First Steps.

    Brenda M.
  • First Steps has been absolutely amazing Day Care for me. My son has been attending First Steps for 3 years now. Kari and her staff are ever so caring and gentle.

    Christina F.
  • I know from experience that not all day care centres are the same. I have five children with an age range of 20 years. First Steps is not the first day care I’ve used, it is however the best.

    Deidra S.
  • The staff work to create a happy, cheerful environment that my little ones look forward to visiting.

    Jeremy B.
  • When I can’t be with my kids, it’s important to know they are with positive people who genuinely care about them, and I have found that at First Steps in Essex.
