Find out how our families feel about their Step Ahead experience!

Welcome to our busy, happy, noisy and creative learning center. We look forward to providing your family with a loving, nurturing and safe environment in which your children can develop to their fullest potential.

Step Ahead is a child-centered, developmentally appropriate program. We emphasize meeting the individual needs of the whole child through a variety of stimulating and challenging activities which facilitate the child’s cognitive, social, emotional, language and motor development. Everything here revolves around children; you will find their work on the walls, see them engaged in active play and hear their voices singing.

We recognize that children learn best through real-life experiences. Step Ahead provides these types of experiences through hands-on learning, creative play, problem-solving opportunities, exploration, community experiences and much more.

We believe that the early years of a child’s development should be a fun and exciting adventure. At Step Ahead Learning Center, we create those adventures “One Step at a Time.”

Welcome to Step Ahead,
Kim Erickson
Executive Director
