For Families

Your child’s first day of school shouldn’t be the beginning of their education. Setting your child up for a successful transition into school and a more independent life begins at home. Through everyday interactions, you can teach your child basic skills that will give them an early start to a successful future.

What We Do

At Richland First Steps, we work directly with parents and children through our childcare and family coaching programs.

Remember: Children develop at their own pace and in their own way. If your child’s development is delayed, you can adapt our resources to meet your child’s individual needs.
