Small Steps Gulfton Expansion

Small Steps is expanding to the Gulfton / Sharpstown area! Our third campus will open at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church - Gethsemane in a community that currently lacks access to high-quality early childhood education programs.

In August 2020, Small Steps will open three classrooms to serve 45 children, ages two and three, at our new Gulfton campus. Small Steps will open additional classrooms in August 2021 and 2022, eventually providing our comprehensive early childhood education program to more than 75 children at this location, with room to grow in the future.

The Gulfton Community

The Campaign

Small Steps is responsible for raising $3 million for the Gulfton expansion campaign. Through our partnership, St. Luke’s United Methodist Church contributed $2.5 million to the overall project budget of $5.5 million, which includes renovations, campus start-up expenses, costs for the first three years of operation, and investment in our continuity fund.

Joining Connect Community

Small Steps will continue to support the family unit by joining forces with Connect Community, a collaboration of best-in-class organizations in the Gulfton area. Connect Community is seeking to bring about holistic revitalization through the development of high-quality mixed income housing, cradle-to-career education pipelines, and community wellness resources.

Small Steps is thrilled to be part of Connect Community by providing an exemplary early education program to the area.
