Welcome to Giant Steps!

Since 1989, Giant Steps has promised to provide a stimulating, loving, and inclusive environment that benefits the child, their caregivers & our community!

Our Program

We designed our program to provide an inclusive, stimulating, loving and home-like environment. In turn which benefits the child, their caregivers, and our community.

Our program works to enhance your child’s self-esteem, encourage their self learning skills, develop social skills, and stimulate learning. All while building on their speech and language development and challenging their motor skills.

Child Centered

We challenge sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills through all kinds of materials and different hands on activities. Both of which are child-centered and teacher directed.

Learning by Playing

Work is planned emphasizing the process rather than the product. Based on the theory that children learn through playing and from new experiences, their classroom activities are varied! They include a balance of structure, free choice, indoor and outdoor play, active and quiet times.

Teachers who help your children learn, grow, & explore

Our family of teachers at Giant Steps strive to make your child a priority, and help our school feel more like a home. With diverse experience ranging from babysitting to post graduate early childhood programs, our teachers bring a wide array of different learning models to ensure each child will benefit in their own way.

Continuing education & safety

Just like the children at Giant Steps, our teachers are continually learning. Attendance at seminars, workshops and annual conferences is mandatory. We partake in staff development programs as part of our on-going training.

All of our teachers are certified in American Heart Association CPR and First Aid for children. Additionally, some staff members have been trained in medication administration and EpiPen injection.

I couldn’t imagine a better place to send my kids. As someone who worked at a childcare center through high school and college, I was extremely picky in selecting the care for our children. These guys have figured it out! The teachers are so caring and special. Knowing how loved our kids are while we are working helps reduce that overwhelming sense of guilt and fear you have those first few weeks. After Giant Steps was sold to Cadence, I was worried that the center would change, but their directors have stayed the same, and so have their core values. I am obsessed with the fact that both directors know the names of all the children, parents and caregivers. This is no small feat because it is a huge center! Directors Katelyn and Sue have gone above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and provide the best care and teachers for our kids. I can’t begin to thank them enough!

Absolutely love Giant Steps! Gives you a cozy home-like feel and all of the staff, including the directors, are wonderful and caring individuals. They have the best outdoor play area and I love all of the creative projects/gifts my kids make at school. Could not imagine my children anywhere else and I am so thankful to have found them!
