STEP Academy



We love Step Academy. My child has been with the preschool since they opened, and she can’t wait to go everyday. She asks to play soccer since she scored her first goal the other day. We love the teacher and the kids talk about her all the time.

We love our girls going to step preschool. They have learned so much in the short amount of time that they have been attending. – Laurie B.

I have had the absolute privilege of sending my son to step preschool for the 2014/2015 preschool year. I looked at 8 different preschools in the Smithtown area and did not take lightly the importance of selecting a school that would best fit my son’s needs. Although I wanted my child to be well prepared for Kindergarten, what was most important to me was that I knew my child was safe and well cared for in my absence. I wanted him to feel comfortable and loved. I could not have hand-picked a better program, or teachers, to provide this for my son. He has never loved going to school so much. He has never learned so much. He has made wonderful friends and is completely ready for the transition into Kindergarten. His teacher, Mrs. Fayaud, as well as all of his wonderful classroom assistants, have been nothing but warm and nurturing. I leave with the comfort of knowing he will be well cared for and that is something every parent hopes for. My son comes home with awesome classroom projects and stories about his day. Let’s not forget the moves he learned on the soccer field with his very favorite person, Coach Jeff. He walks in and everyone down to the receptionist at the desk greets him with warm smiles. The great events they have organized with all of the kids will be a memory I cherish for a long time. I have always felt an ideal balance between academics and play is critical for young children. Play is the avenue in which they learn at this age. I think Step Preschool has met this balance spot-on. The directors of step preschool have done a phenomenal job and I have recommended this program to so many families. Thank you Step Preschool! We will miss you!! – Lauren and Caleb
My daughter absolutely adore Ariana at STEP pre school, thank to her and a great program my girls enjoy school every day. – Dave.

STEP Academy is a unique and innovative approach to learning for preschool aged children (from 2-5). They stand apart from other programs because they not only offer children the chance to excel academically, but to also learn the fundamentals necessary to succeed in the competitive world of sports. They are a New York State licensed daycare facility. – –  Parents Digest 2016
