As a ministry of Newbury Park First Christian Church, Little Steps Preschool exists to joyfully meet the preschool and childcare needs of the community in a safe and nurturing Christian environment.


Here at Little Steps Preschool, we're committed to presenting the love of God, through Jesus Christ, to each child through a sound, Bible-based curriculum. We do this by:

  • Developing and maintaining a positive self-image in each child

  • Developing the growth of each child spiritually, physically, socially, cognitively, and emotionally

  • Ministering as an extension of the family, so that the home and preschool can work side-by side for the benefit of each child

  • Employing qualified staff and providing them with a pleasant and thoroughly equipped facility in which to work

  • Ensuring that teacher-child ratio brings about a quality program: Our class for two-year olds has a ten-student to two-teacher ratio; our class for three and four-year olds has a ten-student per one-teacher ratio.


We provide children with a balanced curriculum and developmentally appropriate programs that incorporate Bible-based themes.

Your child will receive indoor and outdoor activities to help them develop social skills, listening skills, physical coordination, independence, creativity and a positive sense of self. We also provide care for both toilet trained and non-toilet trained kids.
