Our Mission

To provide an exemplary early childhood program to instill and foster the social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth of economically at-risk children and their families.

Our Program

Small Steps Nurturing Center operates two preschools for economically at-risk children living in the Fifth Ward and surrounding areas of inner-city Houston, Texas. We provide a high-quality education, social and emotional support, a nurturing Christian environment, transportation, and nutritious meals to children ages two through six living in poverty. Small Steps operates five days a week, nine months each year (plus one month of summer enrichment), at no financial cost to the families we serve. Small Steps uses proven interventions to help narrow the knowledge gap and create a community of support for our students and families. Small Steps serves approximately 180 children at our two existing campuses and will open a third campus in the fall of 2020.
