About Us

Philosophy

At “A Step Ahead Preschool and Montessori”, we strongly believe in the positive effect, the early childhood education has on the blossoming lives of our children. To meet our commitment to quality education, We have built a caring and knowledgeable team, consisting of certified and experienced teachers and teacher aides. Equally important for our children is to spend their precious days in the classrooms, where they are loved and received more of the “one-on-one” attention by the virtue of smaller ratio in our classrooms.

A Step Ahead’s interactive curriculum not only educates our children with their fundamental elements of learning, such as reading and math, it also helps them with their social skills development and their ability to work independently. We have also adopted an inclusive approach to teaching our young children. Based on the fact that “one shoe size does not fit everyone”, it is essential to individualize our lesson plans, and be able to work with all children of different levels and interests. Our students are assessed in the classroom often, and our parents are provided with their progress reports regularly.

We are devoted to having an active communication with our parents and keep them informed on a regular basis. We recognize that some parents need to select a childcare or preschool for the first time. Such task can be worrisome and challenging at the time, in particular when the most precious gifts of our lives are involved. Therefore, we would like you to consider “A Step Ahead”, as your children’s second home, to receive the same level of trust and care they enjoy at home.
