All four of my children have been a part of the Footsteps family. The teachers greet you with love and enthusiasm. They take the time to know each family and assist the parents in any way they can, whether it is behavioural or social assistance the child may need, they do it with love and guidance.The atmosphere is joyful and calm, they teach the children how to live like Christ and the teachers show it daily in their own interactions with the children. I would highly recommend this preschool for your child!Clarke Family
Over the last 4 years we have had the pleasure of sending two of our children to Footsteps Christian Community Preschool. We love every aspect of this wonderful preschool. The staff are always so welcoming and caring toward our children, from day one there has been a deep sense of belonging and lovely relationships formed with all staff members. We are a Christian family and love how our faith is embraced in the everyday teachings and the impact it has on our children, I felt Footsteps helped build the foundations of their faith alongside our family input. Our time at Footsteps will always be treasured!Smith Family
We love Footsteps Christian Community Preschool. We love that they provide a quality Christian focussed education for our little ones. We love that the beliefs of our home environment can seamlessly carry through to our children's early childhood education. The staff and teachers are amazing, caring about our children as if they are their own, and making wonderful bonds with them. We love the great spaces and resources they have available, especially the four year old programme to prepare the children for school. The best part is how much our kids love going to preschool!Bates Family
Coming from an ECE background myself I was super fussy in what I wanted for our two boys. We have been so impressed by the quality of care and education Footsteps provides. The biggest thing that stood out to us when looking was the length of time the amazing staff have been there for, that speaks volumes in the type of environment it is. We are so blessed to be apart of the family!van der Bel Family
At Footsteps Community Christian Preschool our aim is to nurture children to grow in the love of Christ, to help them become all that God would have them be; safe in the knowledge that they are loved by God; valued, respected and loved as the person they are and the gifts they have.
