At A Step Ahead Child Center, we proudly offer several programs for infants through school age students utilizing a highly acclaimed early educational curriculum that has been proven successful to educate and prepare your child for the next level of their education.

Infant Program

Ages 6-Weeks to 12-Months

Infant Program

Beginning with infants, we work tirelessly to build a foundation of learning that will help your child succeed. At A Step Ahead Child Care Center we understand that you are choosing us to care for the most precious person in your life and we accept that responsibility as if it were our own child.

Our infant caregivers are full of love and hugs and are trained in the methods required for the growth and development of your child. Various experiences are designed to promote gross motor skills while providing a stimulating environment which helps foster trusting relationships.

We provide daily written reports for each parent which documents our infants’ naps, diaper changes, feedings and moods. We meet all our infants’ needs promptly and lovingly, helping them learn to trust themselves and their world.

Young Toddler Program

Ages 1 to 2 Years

Young Toddler Program

Our young toddler program offers increased learning with a focus on language and motor skill development through exploratory and self-guided play.

Educational tools including shapes, colors, letters and symbols are introduced to encourage the foundation for later academic learning. Music, art and reading further enhance and enrich the learning environment. Young Toddlers are also provided with frequent outdoor and indoor play sessions.

Throughout the activities, teachers are supportive and positive in their interactions ensuring the growth of the children at all times.

Older Toddler Program

Ages 2 to 3 Years

Older Toddler Program

In our Older Toddler program, additional learning enhancement is provided by continued music, art and reading presentations as well as self-guided independent play.

Two-year-olds are encouraged to take on more independence to build self-esteem and confidence. Further orientation of letters, numbers, colors, shapes, etc. takes place to support recognition and later learning. Read aloud sessions promote language development.

In the Older Toddler program, more focus is placed on physical capability and responsibility through language development and potty training. Teachers support and encourage children’s efforts with consistent caring and supportive interactions. Outdoor play is scheduled throughout the day to encourage creativity and develop imagination.
