A Message from our Director...

New Family Registration for the

2023-2024 school year has opened.

We are happy to announce three additional programs to our school this year. 

Animal Adventures One Day Fun Day is an additional program geared to provide an extra day of

school or as an introduction to the school environment for 3 year-olds who are potty trained. The goals are to learn social skills, develop fine motor and gross motor skills, become familiar with school routines and have EXTRA FUN! Each week will be theme-based around different animals and will incorporate art, interactive play, literature and science with an excellent student-teacher ratio! This program is a 9 week program on Tuesday mornings from 9:30-12:00 and will cost $260 per child. Please email for more information or to register.

In addition to Stay and Play from 12:00-1:30, we will now be offering Stay and Play Extended. Monday through Thursday parents may choose to have their child stay until 2:00. Students need to bring a peanut-free, nut-free lunch with them and $15.00 to participate in this extended time.

Next Steps is an after school enrichment program that runs for 6 week sessions. Students will participate in Stay and Play as well as a 30 minute class. Fees for this program will vary depending on what activity is being offered during a session. Information will be sent home with students for registration.

The Footsteps Academy, Inc is an independently owned and operated 501c(3) located with the First Presbyterian Church of Bridgeport.  We are a non-denominational, Christian preschool governed by our own Board of Directors in charge of our own staffing and policies.
