Dr. Seuss Pajama Party 2023-2024
On Wednesday evening, March 6th, El Primer Paso’s families were treated to a Pajama Party in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. The children enjoyed hearing some of Dr. Seuss’ most beloved books read aloud by our friends from the Dover Police and Fire Departments: Officer Francisco Aragon, Lieutenant Kevin Andreano, Allen Bell, Jeff Jozowski, and Guiseppe Santillo. 
Thanks to our staff, parents, and readers for sharing this experience with our kids. Everyone had fun!

What Parents Think

My husband and I both went to El Primer Paso when we were little. I remember loving it back then and 30+ years later my little one is loving it too! I can't recommend this (full day!) preschool enough. My son is learning and playing and socializing with kids his age, in a safe, fun environment. It's home away from home. Mrs Ramirez is wonderful and so good with the kids (as is all the staff). I also love that the app allows for quick communication and updates. At El Primer Paso I feel confident that my child is in great hands. Highly recommend!
