Parent Testimonials

"After many struggles with finding caring and consistent childcare for my two children, I finally found Big Steps Little Feet and couldn't be happier! I truly feel like everyone that works at BSLF cares and has an interest in my children. I have also been very pleased with how the facility has handled the COVID pandemic. They have put measures in place to keep everyone as safe as possible, and have always been transparent with their communications to parents. Along the way with the uncertainty of COVID, BSLF has always been flexible and understanding of our changing schedules, and helped tremendously when my Kindergartener was suddenly out of school allowing him to attend on short notice. The happy staff and their friendly smiles that greet us every morning and send us off in the evening are so appreciated and makes our kids feel loved and excited to come back the next day!" - Taylor M.

“Big Steps Little Feet is a home away from home for our children. Both of our children have been going there since they were babies and they love it! We have been extremely impressed by how well they run things. It’s a very familial feeling within their walls, everyone knows and cares about our children and that makes us feel relaxed as parents, knowing that they are as safe as can be till we pick them up. They come home learning something new every single day and I love going through their little art projects and listening to them talk about their daily adventures with their friends in class. We are supremely confident that the foundations of learning and social skills laid in Big Steps will serve our children well in their transition to kindergarten and grade school.”  - Kate & Sriram S.

"Big Steps Little Feet has kept our child engaged. She comes home excited about learning to write her letters and numbers. The curriculum includes a lot of hands-on experiences that she gets very excited about and wants to recreate at home. It is also appreciated how much art is included in the day to day. She does not complain of being bored and there are many opportunities for outside activity and getting energy out. We have recommended Big Steps Little Feet to many friends and family looking for a new child care provider." - Martha & Mike A.

"We love being part of the Big Steps family, now with child #3 attending. I see their Christian and kind-hearted impact on my son through the prayers he says, his manners and words, and healthy habits. I know he is in good care with healthy and yummy food, consistent routines, fun activities and learnings, and safe and fun play time, outdoors and in the classroom." - Rachel G.

"My granddaughter attends the 3 year old preschool program.  Every day she returns singing new songs and excited to share what she created during her 'lesson'.  She is learning and growing wonderfully." - Candace M.

"We are so grateful for Big Steps. We love knowing that you teach from a biblical perspective, so that our children are learning about God and Who He is, even as they learn about His fascinating world. We are also grateful for your focus on godly character, and that your teachers aim to emulate this for our boys, even as we do the same at home. Finally, I am particularly grateful for how your teachers aim to make learning fun, so as to foster what will hopefully be a life-long love of learning from this early age. Thank you for taking such great care of our boys!"  - Kerianne & Ken H.


"We have been a part of the Big Steps Little Feet community for over 4 years and have loved every second of it. Both our boys have graduated through the classrooms and have had the most wonderful and caring teachers who have helped them develop into bright young boys who are now flourishing in both grade school and pre-k. I am amazed that while attending the Pre-K program at Big Steps, my 5 year old is proudly and confidently able to read and pick out sight words before entering Kindergarten. It has built his confidence and has helped to form a bond between him and his older brother through reading and learning. I have never had any doubts or concerns with sending my children to Big Steps Little Feet, knowing they are well taken care of and receiving an education that will help to carry them on through grade school." - Michelle S.

"I can’t even begin to express how grateful we are that the teachers genuinely care about our children as much as they do. I struggle on a daily basis being a working mom and having that guilt. Being able to know that the children have such great teachers helps ease a little of my worry. I can’t say enough good things about my chidren's teachers!" - Christina A.
