Welcome to Little Steps Academy
Who We Are:
We have been operating premium childcare in the West Springs, Cougar Ridge and Aspen area for the past 12 years. We have excellent staff and a great facility to educate and nourish your children during the week when parents are hard at work.
It is well established that the most important years of learning begin at birth. At this early age, a child’s brain is making connections that will last a life time. During these years, a human being is capable of absorbing more information at one time than will ever be possible again. The environment of the young child influences that development of cognitive and emotional skills due to the rapid brain growth that occurs. Studies have shown that high quality day homes have both short and long term effects in improving a child’s outcome.
The Von Approach:
The underlying philosophy behind the Von approach can be summed up in the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child”. Our endorsed providers create a small group environment where children can learn to do new things and associate with interesting adults that truly care about them. To this end, the Von Network has attracted some of the childcare industry’s best partners who share this philosophy. Each member of the provider team is experienced, professional, and commited to making children’s development and socialization a top priority and their only concern during the day. Von endorsed providers interact with children! So there’s really no time for TV in a Von endorsed day home!
Your child is special and deserves top quality care! Having your high quality day home allows you to be confident that they will do interesting things and will always be treated with respect. The strong team of providers in any program we promote in our open houses share a group philosophy surrounding what home based childcare should look like and care for each child as if they were our own because we are all part of our community’s ‘village’!
