    In Good Hands

    A Step Ahead provides a loving, welcoming environment for our children to learn, grow and discover themselves.  The staff embrace the children and strive to meet the needs of each child to maximize their potential.  We appreciate the open communication and organization of the director so we know what is occurring each week and so we can carry-out the teaching at home. Our children look forward to going to school each day, and we have confidence to know they are in good hands. Sarah, mother of 2
