First Step Preschool Overview

First Step Preschool, a mission of First Christian Church, has a rich 23 year history of serving preschool and school age children in the community. In the summer of 2016, a full renovation of the facilities and curriculum has taken place. Under new leadership, the preschool has a new focus on safety and security for its children.

The center is open from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. providing a safe learning environment for all enrolled children.

Skill development for the preschool age child has become the cornerstone for the school year. The Missouri Early Learning Standards are incorporated throughout the curriculum for children 3 years through pre-k.


Horizon Club

Horizon Club is our program for children who are in kindergarten through 5th grade. We offer both a before and after school program as well as a summer program for these children.


Summer Day Camp

For the summer months, a summer day camp, which is unique to the community, has been developed. This day camp focuses on the Christian values of helping children learn positive friendship skills, and includes the theme based activities of summer Olympics, all about nature, and art and music appreciation. A partnership with a local Boy Scout troop is a hallmark of the camp.

I have 23 years experience working in the preschool field, 15 of which have been here at First Step Preschool. There is no place I’d rather work. We have a wonderful Christian environment for children, and staff members are like family. I would love to be here another 15 years and recommend FSP to any family in our community.

I know I have made the best choice in sending my child to First Step Preschool at First Christian Church. It is important for me to know that my child is progressing both socially and academically. The friendly and caring staff always has my child’s best interest in mind each and every day. I love the open communication and feedback from all the staff.

FSP staff has been incredible with my son from day one. The new and improved changes at the preschool have made the staff even more positive and a joy for my child. He enjoys every day at FSP and I look forward to the day my baby will start here.
