Step Ahead Kindergarten is an innovative science-based program located at the First Congregational Church in Braintree.
We incorporate a comfortable environment that eases the child into an academic situation that includes a strong phonics agenda and an effective math program.
Other activities range from daily arts and crafts, number games, reading rediness skills, story telling, role playing, poetry, dance, sports and music.
Our school boasts a maximum class size of 15 children with two teachers.
The low student to teacher ratio allows for individualized attention required to make this year a special one.
