From infants through school age, the programs at Funsteps are designed to nurture
and inspire all children to play, explore, create, discover and learn! We provide
daily enriching, recreational, and hands on activities and experiences in a nurturing
and supportive learning environment. The center’s curriculum and developmental and
educational goals for each age group at Funsteps Preschool and Childcare reflect
Delaware’s Department of Education Early Learning Foundations for Infants, Toddlers,
Preschool/Pre-K, and School Age as well as the Christina School District’s Preschool
& Kindergarten Content Standards. We take pride in our safe, nurturing and stimulating
classrooms and playgrounds that promote a variety of experiences that support children’s
social, emotional, language, intellectual and physical development.
At Funsteps Preschool and Childcare, our babies are guided through their first “STEPS”
toward a lifelong love of learning. Our 2 nurturing infant rooms provide our babies
with a safe, loving and stimulating environment where they can play, explore, discover,
grow and learn!
A toddler is naturally curious, energetic, loveable, happy and developing independence.
They thrive on adult contact and interaction, respond excitedly to familiarities,
and look for approval in new situations. At Funsteps Preschool and Childcare, we
embrace these qualities and use what comes natural to toddlers to build upon their
learning experiences and care for them each day. We provide a safe, loving, nurturing
environment for children to explore and act on their curiosities. Our teachers and
program are dedicated to enriching their lives and enhancing their language, social,
emotional, cognitive and physical development.
A two year old child has the world at their fingertips. They are curious, energetic,
becoming more expressive of thoughts and feelings, expanding their vocabulary and
language skills, becoming more independent, beginning to socialize with their peers
and developing an increased coordination of their motor skills while exploring and
discovering the world around them. At Funsteps Preschool and Childcare, teachers
provide them with a nurturing environment that embraces this growth and development
so they can happily and safely play, explore, create, discover and learn.
The Funsteps Preschool Program starts with our focus on the whole child and their
individual needs. Our goal within this program is to identify, build and develop
each child’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical strengths and interests. This
goal is achieved through the personal attention of our dedicated and qualified teachers,
stimulating and developmentally appropriate preschool curriculum, and welcoming classroom
environment that provides endless opportunities to explore and learn.
Funsteps Preschool & Childcare Inc offers 2 educational Kindergarten Readiness Programs
- a four year old Pre-K class and a five year old K-Prep class. Both classes have
a philosophy that children learn best through a combination of direct instruction
of concepts and skills and hands on experiences in educational and discovery centers.
It is within this child-friendly, stimulating environment that all children can play,
explore, grow learn and prepare for Kindergarten.
Funsteps is dedicated to the development, education and care of school age children
during their out-of-school hours. Funsteps provides an environment for school age
children to relax, enjoy the company of their friends, release some energy and unwind
from their regular school day.
Funsteps Preschool and Childcare’s Summer Camp Program is designed to provide each
child with a wide variety of educational and recreational experiences within the
center and on field trips! Our summer learning plan builds upon their skills, interests
and abilities while enriching their lives with new knowledge and opportunities to
explore, create and grow.
