First Step Nursery School:
We Teach More Than ABC

Welcome to First Step Nursery School, a nonreligious preschool or pre-k program serving families in Hicksville, Westbury, East Meadow, and Levittown since 1984.

Located at and owned by Parkway Community Church in Hicksville, N.Y., we offer morning and afternoon classes for 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds, as well as a "separation class" for 2-year-olds.

Our classes are small, affordable and designed to provide children with the "first step" they need for a successful education. Our average staff-to-child classroom ratio is 1-to-5.

Learn more about our Hicksville preschool by exploring this website, visiting our Facebook page, and calling us to schedule an on-site visit.

We look forward to meeting you!
