What Our Families are Saying
From the moment I met Nasi I knew I had found the perfect caregiver for my young daughter. She is warm, caring and deeply respectful of each young child in her care. Her center is clean, tidy, and spacious. The center is uniquely located near a natural park, where the children can go for walks to the duck pond amidst the forest. I highly recommend Nasi and her team at First Steps!
Nasi and her team were wonderful with my son’s transition into daycare. The center is beautiful and the care they give the children is above and beyond.
Very caring and homey atmosphere for the kids. Nasi and staff are respectful, responsible and kind. Thanks to Nasi and the staff My daughter has grown to be a happy, confident little girl who loves to learn and discover. I am certain that First Step is among the best daycares in the North Shore.
First Step Child Care Centre is absolutely wonderful. I cannot speak more highly of the experience we have had with Nasi and every aspect of her day care. My daughter started attending soon after her 1st birthday and seemed immediately comfortable and at ease in Nasi’s care. I love the thoughtful details, including the incredible home cooked food, the daily outdoor adventuring, the crafts, reading time, and play time. She clearly takes great pride in her work and genuinely cares and cherishes each child. We are so grateful that our daughter is in such a lovely, warm, and enriching environment. Thank you Nasi!
