Ms. BreAnn Ford

Center Director - Katy

Hello everyone! My name is BreAnn Ford and I am the Director here at First Steps Learning Center. I have over 10 years of experience in Early Childhood Education with 3 beautiful daughters of my own. I was born in Louisiana but raised as a Texan! I believe Education is the key to success, and our little ones are the future. I bring love and passion to all my families and children in my care. I'm always here with a listening ear.


Ms. Deanna Perry

Assistant Director - Katy

Hello families! My name is Deanna. I’m the assistant director at the location in Katy. I’m excited to be
here at first steps and getting to know you guys. I was born in Houston and raised in Katy. I have been in
childcare for 4 years, I started off in a classroom as an assistant teacher and worked my way up. Now I
am working on getting my CDA. My favorite thing about working with children is watching them learn
and grow, I love seeing when their lightbulb goes off and they get ideas or to figure something out. I
look forward to serving our families and helping our children grow.

purpose of satisfying it afterwards” – Anatole France
