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!

"We just recently moved to NJ and visited multiple pre-schools for our 4 yr. old son before deciding on El Primer Paso, and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Our kiddo is ALWAYS happy to go to school, and I know it's because of the wonderful and caring staff members that make him feel safe, welcomed, and comfortable. The teachers are in constant communication with parents through the app, as well as sending home weekly updates so that we know what they have been working on during school hours. We really have had a wonderful experience with El Primer Paso and are even a bit sad that we'll only be a part of this pre-school for just 1 year before sending our son to elementary school."

“We feel fortunate to have had our son join El Primer Paso. His teachers and assistants are great. Since day one, our son has enjoyed going to school every day. The teachers are great- so patient, respectful, and creative in their daily teaching. Our son has learned so much since he’s been at El Primer Paso and we are so grateful to everyone that is part of his daily development. “

“Massi loves going to the school, it’s an excellent place where kids feel calm and confident, where they learn a lot, not only academically but socially. Massi has made many friends and expresses great love not only for his peers but his teachers as well. As a mother I feel very calm, dropping off Massi at school. At El Primer Paso, they are very strict in the precautions of the Covid Pandemic, following the medical guidance.”

“Thank you so much for such a great school year! Melanie loved going to school and she loved
her teachers! El Primer Paso was like her second home! She learned so much and is so well prepared for kindergarten. We are so thankful for all the love and support Melanie was given. We will miss you!”

Ever since enrolling our little one, I’ve seen many improvements. First of all, she didn’t speak a word of English, and in less than a month she learned so much. This place is amazing. Classes aren’t big so kids get all the attention. The director is awesome. They send us weekly updates and things we could improve with our kids. I would recommend this place to everyone.
I recommend 100% this school. They are very professional, and my child is happy going to school. What I liked the most is that they are bilingual, and this is very important for me and my family. He has an excellent group of teachers.
Excellent dedicated staff; working extra hard to keep themselves and the children safe during the pandemic, while making sure the children learn and play.
"What I love the most about El Primer Paso is the family atmosphere from staff members, that gives me enough reassurance to know that my little one is safe. Besides it’s a bilingual school where he can learn Spanish while learning and playing with friends. Great school, I sent my oldest child 15 years ago. My daughter graduated from pre-k 4 in June and now my little one is back in El Primer Paso. Love the school".
My 12-year-old son went here when he was 4 years old and now my youngest son, who is 4 years old, is in the program. Teachers adapt very well to the needs of each student and have very efficient ways of communicating with parents. They work well with parents and come together as a team to fix any problems their child may have. They have an outdoor playground that is well maintained, as well as use centers to educate pre-K children."
“Thank you, Gigi is very happy at school and loves the teachers. She has learned a lot and has been perfecting her English, thank you very much. “

My son's experience at El Primer Paso has been wonderful. He learns and has fun with the methodology they have. He loves being in this place. There is dialogue, respect, and very good communication.
“ I’d like to start by thanking God for all my blessings. One of the blessings I’m thankful for is El Primer Paso. El Primer Paso has been the strongest force behind my daughters (Mariana) development these past few months, and without them I wouldn’t have witnessed what she is truly capable of. In three short months Mariana has learned: colors, numbers, animals, essential jobs and their roles, all in English and Spanish. Before El Primer Paso Mariana’s daycare was her great grandmother, and even though she did a phenomenal job and showed Mariana nothing but love, her only language was Spanish. Without El Primer Paso and the attention and care of the staff my daughter would be regressed from the rest of her peers, not only is this a daycare/preschool, but it became a home away from home for Mariana! And for that I thank God and everyone involved in making El Primer Paso the family it is. “
