Essential Steps Child Development Center was established in January 1996, by two sisters, Cassi Marietti and Roxane Gregory. The goal at Essential Steps is for each parent to gain the confidence that their child is getting the best possible care while learning and developing positive values. Our center provides care for ages 0 - 12 years. Each age group has their own set of goals and curriculum. The staff are all well educated in child development and continue to attend regular trainings.

Infant and Pre-Toddler Program

We classify an Infant as ages 0 - 12 months and a Pre-Toddler as ages 12 - 17 months. In our infant room the goal is to develop and reach age appropriate skills.  Our Infant room has a 1:4 ratio and the Pre-Toddler room has a 1:5 ratio. The Infant and Pre-Toddler staff is very loving and nurturing. Mom's will feel assurance from our staff that their baby is in a caring environment second only to home.



Enriching the minds and caring for children ages 0 – 12 years.

Located one block East of the Rockwall Square, Essential Steps has been developing young children into young adults for 17+ years.

Please come by and visit anytime to learn more about our curriculums for each age group. Our hours are 6:00 am – 6:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

We care for Infants, Pre-Toddlers, Toddlers, Intermediate, Pre-K and School-age before and after school and summer and holiday programs.
