My older son has been attending here since fall of 2017 and my youngest is currently in the infant room. We love the teachers and staff! They are very kind and caring , and come up with a variety of activities to keep the kids busy. In addition to a great staff, they also have great facilities. We love that they have both an outdoor playground and an inside gym, so the kids can get some energy out no matter what the weather. Another great perk of this daycare is meals are provided. My kids get to eat a variety of food, and I don't have to take the time to pack meals for them each day. We love our daycare and would highly recommend them! -Dana Ransom-

BEST childcare in the area - no contest! Nicole and her staff are always child-focused, supportive and patient with parents, and deeply dependable. They offer quality care every day, as well as special events the kids love and cherish. The staff are always a delight to work with. We used to be at Kids Inc, but that center went downhill really fast - aside from the loss of safety and quality, there was simply no joy and happiness left in the place. Nicolle saw the need to restore quality childcare in Coralville, and First Steps was born out of her dedication to serving our community. First Steps has become everything a parent could ever ask for. The kids and staff all know each other and help build a loving, supportive, safe atmosphere - full of light and life. Our daughter loves going to her "very own school" again. - Thomas Parham-

Nothing but good things to say about this center! The staff is very personable and patient and make children feel extremely comfortable being at daycare even on hard drop off days! Management goes above and beyond to make sure they accommodate every families needs and do a great job at communicating with parents. If you want a daycare that provides exceptional education and treats you like family, this is the place for you! - Felicia Smith-

Great facility with caring staff. I feel lucky to have found this center for my daughter- Jessica Marks-
