Our Purpose

Children grow up fast!

At Little Steps Christian Child Care our job is to partner with parents by providing opportunities to for children to grow in a Christian-based learning environment.

We create a safe, loving and supportive home away from home for your child. Throughout the day we work to fulfill the physical, emotional, and cognitive needs, so children can grow and learn.

From our teachers and staff, to our beautiful facilities and grounds, children love Little Steps! Learn more about us here, or schedule a visit today.

Lisa McGrath


Lisa McGrath holds degrees in Early Childhood Education and Administration and Human Services.  She has over 20 years of experience working with families and children, primarily in Head Start programs and licensed child care centers. 


She equally enjoys the years she has spent as a teacher directly in the classroom with the children, as well as the years she has spent as a Director ensuring program compliance and success. 


Ms. McGrath has been married for almost 30 years and has 2 grown sons and a brand new granddaughter.  She is active in her Christian faith and serves on the hospitality committee at her church. 


Ms. McGrath began her career at Little Steps in 2019 as the Lead Teacher of the 3-year-old classroom and became the Director in July 2020.  Her goal for every child who attends Little Steps is that they come to know how much God loves them and that they earnestly seek a genuine relationship with Him. 

Our Facility & Procedures

We are proud to be located on the Lighthouse Christian School Campus. Our building and playground are reflective of the dedication both Little Steps and Lighthouse has in creating a safe, secure environment for our children.

Our facility is cleaned daily, bathrooms are sanitized daily, and our toys are washed on a regular basis. Nap time blankets and "lovies" are not shared between children.

We are licensed and accredited by the State of Washington, our staff members are all interviewed and background checked prior to meeting your children. Our staff is current in CPR and First Aid Certifications. We work with each teacher to help them continue their education.
