Small Steps Academy is a ministry arm of Our Savior's Lutheran Church. As such, we exist to create an outreach opportunity to share the Gospel message with children and families in our community that may not yet know Jesus as their Savior from sin.
Our mission is "growing and going to God's people with God's Word."
Small Steps Academy is, therefore, established to train children in a caring Christian environment. We work with children to assist them in their spiritual, intellectual, physical, and social-emotional development. We consider ourselves partners with parents in the training of their children.
"I don't know where to begin. Small Steps has helped my son grow in huge steps, both academically and personally. I can't say enough good things about the program and especially the staff who makes you feel very welcome and eases your mind that your kids are in great hands...staff go above and beyond answering any questions or concerns that we've ever had.
If I had to pick a negative it would be that my son has reached the age to where we have to say good bye. Small Steps will always be known for setting his amazing foundation in his learning process and we will always be grateful to them for that."

"Enrolling my child to Small Steps Academy is one of the best decisions my husband and I have made. The staff are caring and my child is not only prepared for kindergarten but he also enjoyed all the fun activities they do for the kids. Thank you Small Steps Academy!"
"We just want to say thank you to you and your staff for taking such great care of our sons, Sayer and Luken. Small Steps has made the transition for them easier by having such a caring staff, offering engaging programs and your dedication to their spiritual development. We feel blessed by the fact that someone truly cares for our boys and respects their individuality. Our children are learning in leaps and bounds and we are glad we chose so well with Small Steps. We hope you know what a difference you and your staff are making by providing such loving care to our children."
"Small Steps Academy has been such an incredible part of our family. Our son began attending Small Steps when he was two and a half. He has made huge progress learning to expand his language skills and vocabulary and has blossomed so much in the short year since he began Small Steps. Small Steps is a warm, loving environment, with outstanding teachers. I always feel safe and secure leaving my son each morning. There is open communication with all the teachers and staff. Overall, my husband and I have had a very positive experience with the school. I always recommend Small Steps Academy to anyone that's looking for a daycare/school for their child."
