A place for fun and meaningful learning.
LITTLE STEPS LEARNING CENTRE INC is a childcare provider in
North Vancouver, British Columbia. The company was established in 2016;
however, our passion for learning and love for children has been made known
since 2005. Fariba Faridi, owner and founder of the company, started her career
by opening Little House Family Child Care in her home. A few years later, she
changed it into a multi-age group, and finally, in 2016, she incorporated the
business, LITTLE STEPS LEARNING CENTRE INC, and changed the program for infants
LITTLE STEPS LEARNING CENTRE INC believes that:
Children are entitled to a safe and nurturing environment
with a schedule of routines that best meet the individual needs of each child
in our care. This quality care allows each individual child to discover themselves
physically, socially/emotionally, and cognitively.
Our program philosophy is play-based. We believe that
children learn through play and by doing. By slotting long amounts of
free-play, the children are able to develop their own meaning of things and are
able to learn through meaningful play. The educators facilitate the play and
guide the children in understanding new meanings of concepts. All play
experiences are developed and based on the childrenâ€™s interests.
We strive to ensure that each child is treated with respect
as a valuable individual; and every child can grow, play, and learn as an
Our goal is to provide them with a good and strong start as
they enter the real world.
Parents are entitled to individual respect, support, and
quality care for their children. LITTLE STEPS LEARNING CENTRE INCâ€™s mission is
to enhance the lives of the children and their parents by providing a caring
and supportive service. To assure children as well as their parents that they
have the opportunity to develop their paramount capability and are ready to
commence the school education level to the best of their abilities.
Get to Know Us
Fariba Faridi was born in Iran on December 8th. She studied
chemical engineering and pursued this career for more than ten years in Iran.
In 2000, she moved to Canada with her two children, her son at the age of ten
and her daughter at the age of six. In Canada, she started out as an accountant
in a dental equipment company, but the long hours behind a computer and her
long-time compassion for kids persuaded her to remove herself from the job and
to pursue an ECE instead. After completing her ECE, she moved to Burnaby and
opened up her own daycare in 2005, and to this day, she is happily running it.
Fariba finds herself dedicated to her job and tries her best in providing the
best environment she can for the children. Her patience and dedication make her
successful in working with children and parents every day. Her philosophy is
that children should learn through free play, and in her job, she continues to
bring that forward.
