Small Steps South is housed in a 9000 square foot building, which is designed specifically with children in mind. A combination of carpet and tile flooring along with central air conditioning and heat in our nine classrooms provide a comfortable setting for all seasons. The unique child-size bathroom facilities in classrooms makes it easier for children to learn to take care of their personal needs. Our fully equipped kitchen ensures that the children have nutritious meals and snacks prepared to provide the nourishment they need for the day.

Children are challenged to enjoy a multitude of age-appropriate play equipment and educational materials in each classroom. Outdoor play is enjoyed in our fenced in play yards with climbers, slides, playhouses, stationary cars and a fire engine for the little ones. For the older children our playground is equipped with swings, climbers, slide and a large blacktop area for hopscotch, four square, hula hoops and two basketball nets. It also serves as s terrific area for splash days in the summertime.

Adjoining the school is a large field where we conduct several of the summer Kids Kamp activities for the older aged children. There is a gazebo in the play area where classrooms do activities and have picnic lunches during warmer weather. Each classroom has its own outside exit door that leads directly to the gated playground.

There are eight surveillance cameras located around the perimeter of the building and one in the vestibule. Each family is provided with an access code to gain entrance into the front of the building. Small Steps South has an open door policy. Parents can stop in anytime, no appointment needed, to see how their child is doing..
