Our History

by Jennifer Dhaemers

Giant Steps is an independent privately owned preschool founded in 1997 by Jennifer Dhaemers, a former NISD elementary school teacher and graduate from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Education and Texas State Teacher Certification.

As parents of Giant Steps graduates shared their children’s success for early academic achievement, demand for its curriculum grew and resulted in expansion from an in- home preschool to its existing early educational program for children ages 2-5 years.

In the fall of 2007, Giant Steps opened its third expansion by adding a two year old, Early Learners Program, and Transitional/Kindergarten for children ages 4 ½ -5 years.

Giant Steps continues to strive to meet the needs of our families and children by offering a school in an enriched learning environment with experienced certified/degreed teachers in our classrooms ages 3-5 years.
