Fun & Educational After School Care

Count on FIRST STEPS PRE-SCHOOL AND DAY CARE in Libertyville, Illinois, for preschool, after school care, and summer programs your children will enjoy every day. We offer a variety of services for children ages 2 and up.

Day Care & Preschool

Children 2-to 5-years-old start each morning with breakfast. Our experienced teachers then prepare your child socially and academically for kindergarten with topics that include math and reading. In addition, your child will learn Spanish in our bilingual environment. From holidays to history, music to math, your child keeps a monthly portfolio to share what they do with you. In addition, our monthly newsletter tells you what your child has been learning and what's next.

After School Care

School age children grades K-12 come to us after school for supervision, homework help, and socialization. We offer snacks, reading, and other activities as well as naptime for younger children.

Outdoor Activities

Outdoor activities allow children to explore, learn good sportsmanship, and practice organized team skills. We read about nature and sports students will be participating in. Our sports marathon offers students the opportunity to compete.


Students are exposed to Spanish on a daily basis. We teach conversational Spanish through games, music, and other activities to make the learning simple and fun.

Meals & Snacks

Snacks and meals are included and our monthly menu uses organic ingredients in meals made from scratch. Gluten-free foods are available and foods with nuts are not served due to allergies.
