Community Events

Our desire is that every family truly feel a part of the Step One School community. We encourage these connections with events throughout the year.


Classroom Playdates

Each August we invite our incoming classes to meet and play with one another at Step One School. These parent-supervised play dates allow new families to meet and returning families to connect with new classmates. Each classroom organizes one or more weekend play dates throughout the year to strengthen bonds between families.


Parent Speaker SerIES

Throughout the year Step One hosts speaker events on a wide-range of topics from Setting Limits, Talking to Children about Race, Temperament Tools, Gender Expression, Sibling Rivalry and more.


Grandparents, Family + Special Friends Day

Just before Thanksgiving, grandparents, family and other friends of the children are invited to join us for a special school open house and celebration.

Family Fun Day

In the Spring, the school’s Community Support Committee organizes a school-wide play date with games, activities, and music.


Classroom Year End Gathering

At the end of the year, each classroom organizes a parents-only teacher appreciation night off-campus. This gathering is a chance for teachers and parents to reflect upon the year and departing families to say their goodbyes.

All school Campout

Our annual overnight campout is a parent-led experience, with each family contributing, from cooking S'mores to singing songs by the campfire. Families have been making memories at the campout for over 20 years.
