Just a reminder...
One & Two year old classes
Use the Wee Learn curriculum. This is a learning center based curriculum which brings God into the preschooler’s everyday activities. Whether they are playing in the home living center, the art center, the nature center, reading books or hearing Bible stories, they learn about God’s love for them and the wonderful world He created.
Three year old classes
Use All Aboard the Animal Train by My Father’s world. This is a year-long hands-on learning adventure with fun and easy-to-teach Bible-based lessons. Your child will learn about 12 animals through stories, finger plays, creative play, and colorful animal cookie cutters. Along the way, they will experience spiritual growth, cognitive development, reading and math readiness, and develop a love of learning.
Four year old classes
Use the Voyage of Discovery by My Father’s world. They will gain academic readiness skills with the alphabet and numbers, enjoy read-aloud times, develop fine and large motor skills, and increase in cognitive skills. Most importantly, children learn God’s truth and are encouraged to live it in their lives.

I’m Mrs. Dolores. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Jesse, for almost 49 years. We have a daughter, Jessica. Jessica is a music therapist currently at Houston Methodist Hospital, but she received her love and music education from FBCRR. I am also a lifelong resident of Williamson County. I am looking forward to being your child’s music teacher this year at the First Steps Learning Center where I have served for the past 4 years. I love working with children in the areas of creative arts and watching them grow and express themselves particularly through music. I have worked with children for almost 45 years in the United States, Mexico, and Honduras both in the church and school settings bringing music activities to the classroom. Early childhood music education is one of my greatest passions. I am super excited and looking forward to this new school year. I will be praying that the Lord will give us all a successful year. May this year’s music program be a “sweet, sweet sound” in His ears!
