I felt I had to write this review after visiting my daughter and granddaughter in New York. Of course my 4 year old granddaughter could not wait for me to visit her school and meet her friends and teachers. I was amazed by what the kids were learning, their interaction with each other and more importantly how happy the children were.
Thanks so much for taking great care of my granddaughter.
Ms. Jennifer

At work reflecting on how excited my 2 year old son was to be dropped off at A Step Ahead Daycare this morning. I could not be more pleased at my decision to entrust A Step Ahead with my son. This loving and nurturing environment has exceeded my expectations, but most importantly for the last 6 months I’ve been dropping and picking my son up with a big smile on his face. Sincerely, Mr. Wilks

After months of searching for a safe, attentive, academic-based daycare for my 3- year old son Khalil, I found everything that I was looking for and more at " A Step Ahead Learning and Loving Daycare". I thought that I would only be able to find the academics I was looking for in a "school' type of daycare, but the providers at A Step Ahead work diligently to make sure the children are ready and above average when entering Kindergarten or First Grade!!!! I would and have recommended " A Step Ahead" to many parents!!!! They are the best!!

It speaks numbers about a childcare facility when your child does not want to leave at the end of the day. I am so happy to have found A Step Ahead Learning & Loving Daycare. Each childcare provider there does anything needed to make each child feel happy, comfortable, and most importantly, loved. My daughter enjoys lots of interactive and fun learning activities, from instrumental play a-alongs, to dance contests, to creative arts and crafts. At 16 months, she could count to 15, sing the ABC's in its entirety, and spell her name. Any parent of a child who attends A Step Ahead Learning & Loving Daycare can be sure that their child is well-fed, and is having positive experiences in a safe, clean environment.
