First Step is here to assist parents with information, resources and support. We encourage parents to be attentive and invest in their child’s physical, cognitive and social development. A positive and nurturing parent/child relationship is crucial to a child’s sense of wellbeing and safety and their healthy social and emotional development is key to later school readiness and success. We are here to assist parents so that their children can fully maximize their potentials. Being a parent is such important work!
