At “A Step Above” we provide a Safe, Hygienic and Healthy environment for our children. Preschoolers need an environment that encourages and accepts the student’s autonomy, interests, and initiative. We will focus on the overall-development of the child in the early years of life with the right care & guidance.

Communication is starting to blossom as toddlers expand their vocabulary from single into multiple-word phrases. Our teachers will engage toddlers in conversations, by providing a language-rich environment that encourages your child’s progress towards achievement of two-way communication.

Daily activities such as watering plants, discussing about the daily weather, and playing with different toys, puzzles, help toddlers begin to step outside their own boundaries and to embrace concept of sharing, accepting and expressing their feelings.

Our teachers encourage creativity and innovation by engaging children in artistic experiences that allow them to explore art with all their senses

A Step Above is a play-based, child-centered approach to early childhood education. Our curriculum is a combination of dynamic, interactive approach that strengthens the key interests of young children and guides them to develop their curiosity & talent.

Our goal is to provide a home-like environment which is especially important for those children encountering their first experience away from home. We offer small class sizes and ideal student to teacher ratios. This enables the teachers to have a powerful impact on each child’s development by giving them the individual attention that is essential during their early years. The teachers are experienced and knowledgeable about early childhood education. They work collaboratively with one another to support each other in providing an atmosphere that is safe and engaging for all children. We aim to provide a world of opportunities to every child, to showcase their talent and their strengths. Focus on developing their critical thinking skills, creativity and academic skills.

Our vision is to develop the physical, socio-emotional, cognitive, language/communication and self-help skills of children. We inspire curiosity, independence and a life-long love of learning to help our children become contributing members of our community and the world.

Our mission is to provide every child with a quality early childhood experience. We strive to create a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate environment which fosters individual needs. Our staff views education as a partnership between parents and teachers. We believe it is essential to develop a good rapport with each child and parent based on open communication and mutual respect. We believe this is the foundation of a successful school experience. We believe in empowering children by offering them opportunities to make decisions and solve problems. By offering an engaging curriculum it is our aspiration that each child will develop a positive outlook towards school, a better appreciation of the world around them and acquire a lifelong love for learning during their time spent at “A Step Above”.
