Company description
First Step Children's Center has been providing integrated childcare for over 20 years in the East Bay. We have caring and qualified staff that is trained to provide Individualized Activity Based Curriculum for each child. Using an interactive approach, the plan addresses language, cognitive motor skills, gross motor skills, social-emotional needs and self-help skills. Our goal is to increase the quality of life and to enable each child to learn and develop to his or her maximum potential. By totally integrating children with special needs and non-disabled children, our emphasis is to promote the development of a non-biased value system. Children are encouraged to participate in crafts, cooking projects, story time and basic living skills such as feeding, toileting and appropriate peer interaction.
Child initiated activities are also encouraged to provide the opportunity for your child to make choices, decisions and build on leadership skills. First Step Children's Center feels it is important to provide quality daycare services that work within the families principles. In providing a comprehensive program for your child, not only are the development needs of the child considered, but also the cultural, linguitics, and family dynamics. We care what parents want for their children, therefore we feel working as a partnership is beneficial. Alternative Ventures (AVP) and Alternative Ventures for Hearing Impaired and Deaf (AVP-ASL at Walpert) Programs are for individuals over the age of 18, are Regional Center of the East Bay clients with a case manager, who wish to partake in programming that is both on site and in the community.

Occasional paid work may be provided. Walpert (Hayward) has a second AV program for individuals who are hard of hearing or are deaf.
