Welcome to Small Steps Childcare & Early Learning Center

Small Steps Childcare is owned and operated by David & Tara Lynch. In 2010 Tara had a dream to start a licensed home childcare program and now that dream has evolved into two licensed centers serving up to 150 children. Small Steps Tolar was opened in 2018 and quickly was able to serve many children in the community and surrounding areas. We realized there was a need for our program to be in multiple locations to be able to serve multiple families and so we opened Small Steps Granbury in November of 2020.
