Did you know a child's brain is 85% developed in the first 5 years of life? Every experience helps develop this foundation.

First Steps-Ann Arbor is a program for families with infants, toddlers or preschoolers and their parents or other adult.

Our Mission:  We provide the information, support and encouragement parents need to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life.

First Steps is open to all families with children from birth until kindergarten entry. 

Full and partial scholarships are available to

families who live in the Ann Arbor School District.

Fun Classes for Social Connections


Classes are the main reason families join First Steps.

All classes are designed for a parent or caregiver and child(ren) together.

Benefits of Attending Our Classes

All classes are facilitated by excellent, caring teachers.

You have 45 - 90 minutes to focus on your child and interact together without the disruptions of the home routine.

Your child develops self-confidence through play and positive interactions. 

Children (and you!) explore and experiment with a variety of toys and materials as well as interact with other children at their own pace. 

By making their own choices, children gain a sense of mastery and confidence. 

Our classes also provide opportunities for preschoolers to practice social skills and learn new faces, routines and transitions. They will be more comfortable when they move to an independent school experience because of their participation in First Steps with you.

If your child doesn't speak English, our classes offer an opportunity for you to support their first efforts in learning another language.
