First Steps Childcare
The First Steps program has been established to provide Christ-centered quality childcare for the CCA and Calvary Chapel community of believers. Our staff of godly, professional care givers provide a socially stimulating, developmentally appropriate and nurturing daily environment for children, ages 4 months to 3 years, while their parents are at work.
First Steps childcare is available Monday through Friday from 7:30am–5:30pm.
Our First Steps program maintains compliance with ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) and DCF (Department of Children and Families) regulations for a childcare facility.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” —Proverbs 22:6

First Steps Curriculum
In First Steps childcare, the teachers use the WEE Learn curriculum. The program accomodates the differences in the children’s learning styles as they learn through play. WEE Learn is designed for children ages birth through Pre-K.
All First Steps students have nap time after lunch each day. Napping cots are provided and students bring in their own blanket and pillow each week. Bedding is sent home for laundering on Fridays, and must be returned to school on Mondays.
