Parent Handbook

This parent handbook is designed to be a tool for you to use in learning how we at Big Steps Little Feet run our center. The programs and activities we offer here are both effective and appropriate for the children. They can learn and grow in a positive, nurturing, and educational environment which we believe meets your needs as a concerned parent. Our center curriculum and philosophy is Christian-based, but we do not discriminate based on religious affiliations. We consider it a privilege to serve you, the parent, by providing high quality child care and instruction. You are a valuable part of our service and we always welcome your comments and input. Please feel free to call us or drop in at any time. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Birth to 5: Watch Me Thrive!

Celebrate milestones. Every family looks forward to seeing a child’s first smile, first step, and first words. Regular screenings help raise awareness of a child’s development, making it easier to expect and celebrate developmental milestones.

*Developmental Milestones Information:*
Ages 0-1
Ages 1-2
Ages 2-3
Ages 3-5

Promote universal screening. Just like hearing and vision screenings assure that children can hear and see clearly, developmental and behavioral screenings track a child’s progress in areas such as language, social, or motor development.

Identify possible delays and concerns early. With regular screenings, families, teachers, and other professionals can assure that young children get the services and supports they need, as early as possible to help them thrive alongside their peers.

Enhance developmental supports. Combining the love and knowledge families have of their children with tools, guidance, and tips recommended by experts can make the most of the developmental support children receive.
