Our very own First Step Preschool is a licensed, non-profit site. First Step Preschool is owned by the Black Forest Community Church, and has proudly served the Black Forest community (including Colorado Springs, Falcon, Peyton and Monument) for over 20 years. Our learning program is designed as a social, educational, recreational and Christian environment in which children can grow physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Teacher-directed and child-directed activities are provided each day, focusing on all areas of development. All of our learning materials and Montessori equipment are age-appropriate and arranged in the following areas: Sensory Development, Practical Life, Language, Mathematics, Science, Art, Music, Books, Blocks and Dramatic Play Area. We make sure that we cover all of the State Educational benchmarks for kindergarten readiness.
