Untitled design-5_edited.jpg

What is El Primer Paso and why are we special?

  • We are a nonprofit bilingual community preschool with wraparound childcare services for working parents

  • We have 54 years of experience serving families of limited means, many of them new immigrants

  • We are rated as a quality program by Grow NJ Kids and NAEYC

  • We offer affordable care and education in a multicultural environment

  • We provide a warm, personalized, home-like setting for children’s first educational experience

  • We assist parents with bilingual resources and training

  • We prepare teachers and paraprofessionals for careers in early childhood education

If you care about the future of young, vulnerable children, please donate to El Primer Paso.  For fifty-four years, El Primer Paso’s children have received the strong foundation needed for success, not only in kindergarten, but in future schooling and professional careers.


Why you should give:

  • El Primer Paso needs your support to continue its important work

  • Tuition from all sources makes up only a little more than half the cost of providing a quality preschool program for our students

  • We depend on grants and charitable donations to make up the rest
