A Step Ahead is a Montessori-inspired Spanish bilingual preschool, based out of a loving home in Oakland, CA. Lic #013421790
We provide an enriching & fun Spanish bilingual program based in the Montessori method for children ages 2 to 5 years old. Our goal is school-readiness: that each child who enters our doors will be ready for kindergarten. We strive to nurture the social-emotional, physical, & cognitive development of children in order to develop the “whole child”. These experiences all take place within a loving, safe, and respectful environment to encourage curiosity and discovery.
Through lessons in care of self and conflict resolution, we prepare children with skills they will use throughout their lives. We teach valuable social skills that the children develop and use well into adulthood. We believe children learn through interacting with their environment, family, & teachers, and they have a natural desire to learn. At A Step Ahead, we cultivate that desire.
We believe through a child’s innate desire to learn, they should be able to make their own decisions about their environment and lives. We encourage independence through use of Montessori materials so children learn to complete tasks on their own, or sometimes with the help of a teacher, which encourages self-confidence within the child.
