What is STEPS?

Serving Trinity Evangelical Preschoolers (STEPS) is dedicated to providing biblically based Christian programs, which support families and children. We currently offer Preschool Classes to children ages three to six years old. 


The mission of Trinity Evangelical is to “Know Christ and Make Him Known”.  Children will be enabled and encouraged to glorify God through His word and skills developed while interacting with our teachers and fellow students. 


STEPS Christian Preschool offers preschool for children starting at the age of three. They must be potty trained. 

Follow the steps below to register your child:   

STEP 1: Select the class you want to enroll your child in. 

STEP 2: Click on the "Click Here to Register" button below to fill out a registration form. You will be asked to create a Brightwheel account.(Don't forget to download the app on your phone) Filling out the form does not guarantee your child a spot but allows the registration process to begin.

STEP 3: After the director reviews your application and verifies an available spot, a $75.00 invoice will be sent to you via Brightwheel. This fee is non-refundable and is due once the application has been accepted. The fee can be paid immediately online (processing fee applies), mailed, or dropped off at the church. This registration fee is not included in tuition amounts. After the form is submitted and your fee is paid, the director will contact you.

STEP 4: Once the application is approved and fee is paid, you are registered and ready to begin your journey with Steps Christian Preschool. 

STEP 5: Expect your child's paperwork by July. Your spot will be held in the order it is received & your application fee is paid.
