From Parents

My daughter has been going here for about 1.5yrs now. She started when she was 3 and has shown me nothing but success! I am literally blown away by the wide range of material they cover, even things I don’t think she is old enough to understand, she comes home & tells me about sometimes. My daughter has been equipped with the necessary skills for starting school & life in general. The staff have always been great. They communicate well, always keep me informed, are very precise, clean & friendly. During the times she has misbehaved, the teacher will always point it out, suggest we talk at home, and focus on creating a solution. I like how much structure this provides them, I just can’t imagine how that would not be beneficial to her in the long run. It has instilled a new level of discipline & respect for authority. All in all I would recommend this preschool to anyone for their little ones. I have seen amazing progress mentally, emotionally & academically since day one! I am confident knowing that my daughter has a solid, daily structure in place.

We have greatly enjoyed taking our daughter here. I went from being with her most the day to dropping her off at school. The transition was not easy, but the staff was great and was encouraging. We have only been going to Basic Steps for a few months but she is learning sooo much and is thriving!!!!

We have found that Basic Steps works well for our family. They are flexible with our schedules. They individualize curriculum for our 2 children that have attended their preschool program and we are looking forward to having our 3rd child attend next year. As a parent we were looking for a program that was academic and fun at the same time for our children. We found this with Basic Steps. They have challenged our kids when needed and have provided opportunities like karate to engage the children. The number one thing I love about this program is that the curriculum is NOT a “store bought” and it is a curriculum designed by the Director that is individualized and tailored for each child.

From the beginning set up process to graduation we loved Basic Steps. Our son has learned so much over the last year. The school is a great environment. It is super clean and the staff is really passionate about their careers. We highly recommend Basic Steps.

Mrs. Joa and her staff are excellent at Basic Steps Learning. I highly recommend this preschool to any parent who wants their child to receive more than an exceptional education. My son started about two years ago. He was very timid and shy. Mrs. Joa and teachers recognized his weakness and worked with him step by step. He has excelled and is more than ready for kindergarten. Mrs. Joa is highly educated and has a heart of gold. Her curriculum is more than standard. She goes above and beyond for her students. She keeps her tuition very very affordable because she believes every child should have a chance to receive a quality education. Amazing school and teachers.  :)

Quality Excellent

My son has been going here for about 6 months. He loves it, and has been having so much fun! He was extremely shy, and now he is out going and learning so much. He has even started spelling a few words to me, and doing math. I love getting his artwork he makes every time he is at school too. The teacher sends emails to the parents keeping us included in what they are doing. She also posts pictures on facebook so we can see how much fun they are having. This preschool is amazing, and so are the teachers!

My daughter started attending this pre-school in the Fall 2012. My daughter absolutely loves attending. She always has exciting new things to tell about what she has learned each day and she adores her teacher, Mrs. Joa. I, as a parent, appreciate the flexibility of the class offerings as well as the continued sharing of information from Mrs. Joa. She is very good at keeping you informed about what is happening each week as well as posting pictures on the website and taking the time to send them out to parents individually. Our experience has been a great one this far! ~

Excellent!

My child has been attending Basic Steps Learning Preschool since Mid-Winter quarter of 2013, and I have to say, in such a short period of time; my child has improved tremendously, that he shares with me what he has learned. I have visited many preschools before I brought my child here to Basic Steps and this is by far the best Preschool. It’s affordable, hours are flexible, teachers are great; and most of all I was impressed with the curriculum/lesson plans that Kany Joa uses for teaching, that there was no way I was going to pass it up. My child enjoys school so much, he cannot wait to go back the next day. I highly recommend Basic Steps Learning Preschool. My only regret is I did not find Basic Steps sooner.

My daughter has been attending this preschool since Oct. 2012! Since attending this school I can tell she’s more confident and not as shy around other kids! She is always so excited to show me the art work she made in class and all the things she learned! I am extremely happy I put her in this preschool! My daughter loves Mrs. Joa and her classmates!

I think Kany is AMAZING with my daughter! My daughter has grown so much since she started attending Basic Steps! I know my daughter is really learning from this school because when we’re at home she replays the things she did that day and she continues projects that her teacher has taught her! I’m so glad that I enrolled her when I did!!!!        (PROUD MOMMY & DADDY)

Our daughter has been going to Basic Steps learning since March 2013.  From the first day that she has been there, it has been nothing but positive for our family.  Our daughter is full of energy and it takes the right people to catch her attention.  Ms. Kany and Ms. Rianne have had the influence upon our daughter that shows each day she is there.  From the singing and art projects to the games they play.  This is a very hands on experience that allows our daughter the interaction with other children her age that she needs to ease her transition into kindergarten.  Not only do we get the artwork made by our daughter, we also have the opportunity to save pictures from the Facebook page for Basic Steps Learning.  Those pictures are priceless…ones you will never get a chance to see elsewhere!  Thank you Ms. Kany and Ms. Rianne for having such a positive spin on our daughter’s life.  Many thanks!  The Masseys.
