I love all the trainings provided by Edgefield County First Steps. I learn new things at each class and I really enjoy listening to and talking with fellow teachers from other centers and family homes. It really helps me grow as an early childhood teacher.

All the knowledge and skills I learned from these classes, I will be able to use in my everyday life, not just with my kids, but with people in general. I appreciate these classes. They have taught me that sometimes you just have to take a moment and breathe! Life is not fair all the time. Love on your kids and always encourage them. Be their biggest fan! I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
