Why Choose a Faith Based School?
There are many reasons why families choose Christian schools for their children. The decision to explore a Christian education for your preschooler is one that will have a positive impact on your family’s life. By selecting First Step Preschool, you are partnering with our staff in the intellectual, spiritual and developmental growth of your preschooler.
At First Step Preschool we believe one of the most powerful reasons is simple:
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
We want to instill love in the hearts and minds of children as they grow and learn. The love of Christ, the love of learning and love for one another.
Our class sizes set us apart from other learning environments as well.
Colorado regulations limit class size to 15 for a preschool, 20-24 for daycare with teacher to student ratios of 1:8-1:15 depending on age.
We keep our classrooms small in order to be able to focus more on the children present, maintain a learning and behavior focused environment, and ultimately create a space where both the students and the teachers can thrive.
We believe Christ was a teacher and incorporate that belief in our daily activities and studies.
He opened His mouth and began to teach them . . .
Bible stories, characters, and verses contain amazing examples of character development. We integrate these throughout our day by reading Bible stories together, memorizing verses, praying, singing, dancing and worshiping to songs about God.
Our daily curriculum includes an emphasis on character development, where we strive tot build a sense of care for others. We do this by focusing on consideration, appropriate behavior not only in the classroom but also in the community and home.
