First S.T.E.P. Class
First S.T.E.P. (Socialization Through Enriched Play) is a preschool class in collaboration with ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation. We are only one of two preschools in the country that offers a class for children, or siblings of family members, undergoing cancer treatment or other childhood diseases. A sanitized classroom environment is provided two days a week with two teachers and a full curriculum.
