Why Little Steps

The Little Steps Approach

We know embarking on child care options for the first time can be daunting, so we are here to help! We’ve created this page to give you a better understanding of the Little Steps Approach to help you with your child care search and to showcase why we may be the perfect fit for you and your family.

Research shows having access to quality child care fosters a society of individuals who are physically, socially, and emotionally healthy. So, no matter which child care centre you choose, we appreciate your commitment in seeking the very best early childhood experience for your child!

We Are Here For Our Community

We realize that finding the right child care program can be a stressful and emotional process. When our families arrive at our centres, they enter into a warm and welcoming family environment, where they are greeted and made to feel like an important part of the Little Steps community

We understand that providing a strong educational foundation for your child is one of the most important responsibilities associated with parenthood. That is why we have an open-door philosophy where you are welcome to pop in at any time to check on your child and to ensure our program is meeting your needs.

Our experience and expertise, coupled with our business strategies, philosophy and history of compliance with our governing bodies, has grown Little Steps into a leader in the child care industry with a reputation for success, commitment, and integrity. We are committed to providing high quality child care that promotes a positive, safe, loving, nurturing, and home-like atmosphere where the health, safety, and well-being of our students is our top priority.


Our Environments Are Designed With Your Child In Mind

Little Steps offers a uniquely warm, inviting, and child-centered environment that is welcoming, fun, exciting, stimulating, creative, and safe.

Our classrooms are purposefully designed to evoke peace, tranquility, and harmony in a beautiful and simplistic way with our student’s independence in mind.

Shelves and tables are filled with developmentally appropriate learning materials that enhance the senses of our students and gives every child the freedom to fully develop their unique potential.

We view every child as strong, capable, independent, curious, and full of imagination. We empower children to think, question, investigate, and explore. The role of our educators is to navigate the learning journey alongside our students, not from above.

Our inviting atmosphere is well-prepared by our team to encourage independence and choice, while also nurturing each child’s mind, body, and spirit.

Good People Become Great Teams

We strongly believe that a well-managed team and proactive employees are the perfect ingredients for a solid culture and positivity, and important for our overall success.

Our diverse staff of educators come with extensive backgrounds in Early Childhood Development and are dedicated to the creation of child-centred, hands-on, play-based environments for young children. They provide a wonderful blend of experience and knowledge and have a passion for guiding young children. All Little Steps staff are Alberta Certified and possess a current First Aid Certificate and Police Clearance.

Our goal is to employ a happy, caring, and committed team of educators who, like us, share a passion for early childhood education. We strive to make every Little Steps employee feel valued and appreciated and provide them with a sense of belonging where they are free to be themselves and continue peacefully down their professional journey. We know that you and your child(ren) will love our team as much as we do!
