Our policy


1st Step Learning Academy offers quality child care for ages 6 weeks to 12 year old. The love that we give to your child will encourage, enhance and nurture your child to make sure their next step is bright. Our goal is to make sure that your child’s stay here is productive, fun and rewarding. We strive to maximize their social, learning and creative skills while we impart into them spiritually, physically and mentally. We are concerned about their well being because we are aware of how important every part of us as a person has to be awakened, stimulated and nurtured. Quality instruction for your child is very important to the staff of 1st Step Learning Academy. Every effort will be made to offer your child enriched instructions and play environments. Clean surroundings and loving-care are essential for the development of each and every child. The love and respect afforded all children will brighten their outlook.

Hours of Operation


January through December

 6:30am-7:00pm Monday-Friday.

We Offer Quality Child Care With A Smile!



Tuition is due and payable on Friday for the following week beginning on Monday when you bring your child for drop off.


PAYMENT BEFORE SERVICE. If payment is not paid at the time of drop off and/or before the end of the business day on the following Monday, a $10.00 late fee will be accrued each day thereafter until payment is made. If by Friday, the end of that week, payment is not made, your child cannot return until tuition and late fees are paid. If your child is absent for the whole week, your tuition is one half of your payment. This is to ensure your child’s space is not taken. If child comes one day of the week a whole payment is still due, unless your child is enrolled as a drop off status.

Returned Checks


In the event that your check for tuition and fees are returned for non-sufficient funds, there will be a $35.00 returned check fee due immediately. After this, we will request that you pay with cash, credit card or money order. Failure to reconcile returned items will result in the checks being turned over to Check systems which will discredit your ability to write any other checks anywhere.

Late Pick-Up Charge


If a child leaves the center after 7:00 pm for any reason, a late pick up-fee of $1.00 per minute will be due and payable before the end of that week. If child’s late fee charge is not paid by the end of that present week, your child is not allowed to come on the following Monday for a new week.
