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

“For my somewhat shy kiddo, this has been a place where she’s built amazing social skills and lots of confidence. The teachers are super cued in to each kid’s needs, and how they function together as a group. Also, I did almost nothing to potty train to her; Ms Julia and her staff gently and ease-fully initiated this when she was ready, and they did an incredible job. The teachers were super supportive and helpful when my younger son was born, and I they helped my daughter adjust well to the new family dynamic. I can’t say enough kind words about this school. The parent community is down to earth, the school highly values diversity, and the kids have a great time. My daughter can understand almost everything in Spanish, and is now starting to speak it at home. This is going to be a huge resource for her in life, and I’m so glad its so easy and interesting to her. Ms. Julia and Ms. Laura are excellent teachers, and provide such a high quality program.”

“A Step Ahead has provided our little one with a nurturing environment to explore, play, and practice her Spanish language skills. Ms. Julia and Ms. Laura are wonderful, as are all of the teachers. I love getting daily updates and pics of how she’s doing through the Brightwheel app, communication is great. We love ASA and can’t recommend it enough!”

“Ms. Julia & Ms. Laura provide the children with a well-structured / balanced learning environment of activities, including full Spanish immersion. Our daughter (now almost 4) spent nearly 2 years in the program. We believe this program played a large part in helping her flourish; developing strong social skills and nurturing her curious, growing mind.”

  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.
