Field Trips

At Big Steps Little Feet, we are fortunate to offer a wide variety of hands-on field trip experiences for your children throughout the year. Our field trips coincide with the themes we have planned for that particular week. We have the advantage of being able to venture to many exciting destinations, either walking or using our buses, as well as having community guests visit us on site to share their talents and experiences.
