This is my dream come true!  Being a mother of seven, propelled me into my destiny and that is being the owner here at 1st step.  It’s a pleasure to work with all the children and the parents that come through the door.  We have so much fun and I would not ask for any other experience.

Meet Our Teachers

Mrs. Kai Kyser

My name is Kai Kyser and I am the Director here at 1st Step Learning Academy. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and invite you to stop by our center. We strive to provide a loving nurturing environment where children can receive exceptional child care. Early Childhood development and education means the most to us here at 1st Step. We are proud to have an engaging curriculum that allows children to thrive. As a wife and mother it is important to me that all children receive exceptional care. I have worked in child care for over 15 years. I pride myself on staying up to date in the newest research in early childhood education so that we can continue to provide developmentally appropriate curriculum to our children. Our children are the future and I love being apart of their journey.  I am thrilled to be apart of the family here at 1st Step Learning Academy.

Hello, my name is Jasmine Mcdoe and I love teaching kids with a passion. I am a  fun, outgoing, energetic, and creative teacher. I have been teaching kids for 14 years and it has brought so much joy to my life. I have taught children aging from the ages of two to eighteen. This year I'm teaching the two-year-olds and I am having the time of my life.

My name is Mr.Jacob.  I have 3 years of experience in the daycare setting.  I've worked with children of all ages and I absolutely love what I do.  I believe it is important to build a solid foundation at a young age.  I take pride in my ability to help shape and mold young minds, so they are able to grow and become productive members of our society, and it all starts here.  I'm happy to be a part of the 1st Step Learning Academy and hope to leave a positive and lasting impact on the children I have the pleasure of working with.
