“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.
“I have seen Julia interact with my two-and-a-half year old daughter on a routine basis, and it is not an exaggeration to say that she is one of the best – if not the best – person I have ever seen interact with children, and I’ve seen plenty of teachers (Montessori and otherwise) over the years.
She is extremely conscious of children’s needs: physically, emotionally, and psychologically, and adept at providing an optimal environment for them to thrive.”

“Julia is a deeply passionate person who takes great care of children…Julia has a kind heart and instinctively knows how to interact with them.”
– Emily S.
“When it comes to children, Julia is inspirational. She has a gift to relate to them, even reason with their logic. She entertains them with her instruction, I find it refreshing. Children need you to empathize with them, relate to them, yet, they need boundaries, rules. Julia is compassionate while she demonstrates authority. It’s quite impressive to see her work a room with children, a pleasure I have witnessed at friends’ homes and with my own daughter and her cousins.
