Preschool Program

At A Step Ahead Preschool & Childcare, our primary goal is to help your child enjoy learning. We provide an environment to enhance growth for the whole child. Children learn by actively exploring, discovering, observing and interacting with one another. Our students are encouraged to express themselves through art, music, movement, writing and language. We are a developmentally appropriate program and will provide your child with many opportunities to learn and grow!

All of our lead teachers hold Bachelors of Arts degrees in Education and have had the pleasure of serving Treasure Valley families since 1998. The return rate of both our staff members and local families is a testament to the success of our program.
