As a pre-schooler, the world is bursting with newness.

Each day is filled with one new discovery after another. Where did that bird come from? Look, the moon is shaped funny tonight! Who thought to color the butterfly like that?


God made me and loves me, Jesus wants to be my forever friend, and I get to tell others about God.


Little Steps helps kids get their first impression of their heavenly Father and the wonder of His love for each one of them. It is our goal to instill in every child their value to God and a sense of purpose for their lives. We desire to give them a strong foundation in Jesus so that as they grow older, they will not stray from these simple truths.

The Apostle John said, “I could have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” I echo the wise words of the Apostle of love.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Infants experience God’s love by being cradled and cared for in a safe and secure environment where they can relax and play while you worship.


We know that leaving your new baby for the first time can be overwhelming. The volunteers in our infant classrooms have been chosen for this age group because of their love for babies and their training to care for all of the needs of your infant. We hope that the following information will help you and your baby have a great experience.


— Please bring diapers, bottles, pacifiers, and any special blankets that will help soothe your baby.

— Label all items that belong to your baby.

— To ensure that your babies receive the best care, we adhere to a one volunteer to every two kids ratio in our infant and crawler classrooms.

In this fun age of wonder and awe, we intentionally seek to direct their focus to the God of wonders. We have playtime, snacks, and our volunteers pray, teach, and play with your kids, showing them how to interact with each other in a safe and fun environment.


All activities are age-appropriate with plenty of flexibility for the normal needs of toddlers and two-year-olds. We believe in an active, hands-on approach with our kids, so be on the lookout for those fun projects!


— To ensure that our classrooms are safe and to create the best possible learning environments, we adhere to a ratio of one volunteer for every four kids.

— Every week we provide animal crackers for snack time. If your child has any allergies or special dietary needs and cannot eat what we have provided, please inform the teachers and bring appropriate snacks for them.

— Be sure to bring extra diapers and a change of clothes.

— Label all items, including cups, snacks, diapers, pacifiers, etc.

— If your child is potty training, please be sure to communicate that to the teacher. We ask that they wear pull-ups to the classrooms.

— Volunteers are never allowed in the bathrooms alone with kids. They will assist them with clothing (as needed) outside the door and with hand washing afterwards inside the classroom.

— Please do not bring extra toys, since it is hard to distinguish what belongs to whom.

At this young age our kids learn that God loves them and sent His Son to die for us so that we can live. They are nurtured in a fun atmosphere where they are taught to worship the Creator through games, Bibles stories, memorizing scripture, singing, skits and crafts.


The first thing we do is grab your child's attention with a fun activity designed to get them prepared for the days Bible story. They will then hear a creative presentation of the Bible story and continue to worship through music, where they are encouraged to sing and dance. After, we help them better understand the key truth of the day through a hands-on experience.


— In order to create the most ideal teaching environment, we place one volunteer in every classroom for every five kids.

— If your kid is potty training, please communicate that to the teachers and bring an extra change of clothes.

— Volunteers are never allowed in the bathrooms alone with kids. They will assist them with clothing (as needed) outside the door and with hand washing afterwards inside the classroom.

— We often provide snacks. When we do provide snacks, you will see a note posted on the counter in the classroom. If your child has any allergies or special dietary needs and cannot eat what we will be providing, please inform the teachers and bring appropriate snacks for them.

— Please do not bring toys from home, as it is very difficult to distinguish what belongs to whom.

Like sponges, little children absorb everything they are exposed to. Let's expose our children to Jesus, 24/7/365!
