We at "A Step Ahead School" believe that if a child is in an environment
where he or she is happy then that child will thrive. The first five years of life
are the most important, here a child develops physically, socially,
emotionally and cognitively.
We will provide an environment where the child will feel safe and secure
and where he or she will develop a positive self-concept. Our atmosphere
will promote independence, self confidence, creativity, questioning,
development of the thought process, respect for self and others and we
will build the foundations needed for the basic skills of learning.
Our curriculum will develop the areas of Language Arts, Math, Science,
Social Studies (Multicultural) Music and dance. We strive and work hard
towards maintaining a warm and loving environment individualizing the
lessons whenever necessary to meet your child's needs.
" Alexis' graduation comes with a mixed bag of emotions. We are thrilled at her success as
she moves to the next level, but saddened as she leaves the safe haven she has known as
A Step Ahead".
Mr. Mrs Juncosa
" It will be with sadness and joy as we watch Angelice graduate from Kindergarten this year.
Feelings of pride and joy because Angelice has reached a milestone in her life, fully
prepared to meet the challenges of first grade. Feelings of sadness because Angelice is
leaving a safe haven that has given her so much love, support, and encouragement".
Mr. Mrs. Grasso

from the bottom of our hearts for giving our daughter Chelsea, the best preschool and
Kindergarten education ever imaginable".
