IMG_3278“Step Ahead is a wonderful place for preschool! We signed our oldest daughter up on the recommendation of a friend, and she loved it. As a parent, you want your child’s first school experience to be a positive one, and she got that and more. She was immersed in a loving and nurturing atmosphere where she learned to read and play with others. When it was time to send our youngest daughter, there was no question as to where she would go. The dedication, attention and professionalism exhibited by each of Step Ahead’s teachers are beyond reproach…truly a world-class team. Thanks to Step Ahead and your wonderful teachers, my daughters were able to read before entering kindergarten.” — The Colandreo Family


“I absolutely love Step Ahead. At Step Ahead, my kids are engaged in a wonderful learning environment. The teachers and staff are nurturing, compassionate and excellent early childhood educators. We have been a part of the Step Ahead family for more than five years. Each time our car pulls into the Step Ahead parking lot my kids squeal with delight, knowing it’s their day to go to Step Ahead.” — The Konstantakos Family


“To all of the wonderful members of our Step Ahead family: Thank you so much for all the special experiences you have helped create for Katie. She always tells me, ‘Mommy, I wish every day was a Step Ahead day.’ You all really are like our family, and I know our Katie is loved and cared for each day when I leave her there for her latest Step Ahead adventure. It has been a pleasure to get to know all of you and share with you some of the wonderful moments of Katie’s growth as she navigates the path to the amazing person she is going to become. Thanks for helping us and serving as guides on this thrilling and marvelous journey.” — The Nelson Family


“We were so happy that this school year (2010-2011) brought our youngest child into the Step Ahead family. All three of our children can now say that this is/was ‘their’ school. As both a parent and an early childhood educator myself, I was so pleased to find the Step Ahead program back in 2003 when my oldest child began classes in the 3-year-old program. Not only is the environment warm and engaging, but the program is always focused on the development of the children. Experiences are thoughtfully chosen and documented for the benefit of the students and the families. The teachers are clearly valued and well-trained professionals. Every child is special, and that message is clear to all who walk in the door. I have recommended the Step Ahead program to many parents in the community and will continue to do so. We could not be happier that Step Ahead has been the first school experience for our children.” — The Nyhan Family


“I just wanted to send you a quick note telling you how much we appreciated our years with Step Ahead. I always felt Thuy was loved, respected and safe at Step Ahead. I never had a moment’s worry when I left her at school — I knew she would be learning new things, enjoying the day, playing with friends, receiving hugs from her teachers, and smiling. Thank you for providing such a wonderful environment for my daughter. We thank you for some truly magical years.” — The Schmitz Family
