Our preschool program is awesome, but don’t just take our word for it! Check out what these parents have to say!

“We’ve had our son at A Step Ahead since he turned two-years old and he is now 3 1/2. We’ve been thrilled to have him attending school there for some of the following reasons:

– Montessori learning environment
– Full Spanish immersion
– Ethnically and culturally diverse families
– Based in the quiet/lovely neighborhood of Maxwell Park
– Kind and generous staff who love our children
– Clean and safe environment where kids learn and have fun!
– Financially competitive and they offer much more than other schools!”

-Chandra L.

“I fully endorse Julia and A Step Ahead Preschool.

My son has been attending there for a year. He’s a slow-to-warm, hesitant in new situations type, and Ms. Julia has created a strong bond with him. She’s very warm and loving, and does a great job of creating a safe, educational and fun environment for the kids.”

– Velma G.

“…If you are looking for a kind preschool with a small teacher-to-child ratio, I strongly encourage you to check out a Step Ahead. Julia provides a reasonably priced option, while keeping the small school feel. My son has one year left before entering elementary school, and though I am pro play-based approach, it is exciting to see his letter and number recognition grow, on such a large scale. I am confident that he will do well in whatever school I choose to place him in. I am at peace dropping my son off every day, and that, in my opinion, is priceless.”

  1. My daughter started this preschool when she was 2.5 years old and she went there for four months. We would have definitely stayed longer all the way till school if not our move out of state.
    Julia, the teacher and the owner, is not just very educated and knowledgeable, but she is also a wonderful person. My daughter never cried of my leaving her there and she would always look forward to going to Ms.Julia’s every day.
    The place is always clean and very organized. The toys are age appropriate and learning. Activities including circle time and show and tell are just what you would expect in learning centers.
    You can bring your own lunch or for a little extra a month Ms. Julia can make lunch for kids. She would share the weekly menu via email and my daughter always ate everything there.
    Another benefit we had is that Ms. Julia speaks native English and fluent Spanish to kids all the time. Even only after four months there, my daughter grasped the language and understood everything Ms.Julia would tell her in Spanish.
    I also liked communication with Ms.Julia.
    I really recommend the place.
