A Few Words
From Our Parents

Here’s what parents have to say about First Step Nursery School:

“We have been very happy with First Step Nursery’s Enrichment Program. It is totally different from the 4-year-old program and reinforces the concepts that our daughter is learning in kindergarten. The staff at First Step Nursery is terrific. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone.”  --Joann DeStefano

“The kindergarten supplement program is ‘stellar.’ It places an emphasis on the verbal strategies necessary in learning to read. The flexible days and hours fit perfectly into either an AM or PM half-day kindergarten schedule. With our sincerest gratitude and appreciation we would like to say thank you to First Step Nursery for all the happy memories!”  --Kurt & Dee Schiller
