Beginner Steps has been a great daycare choice for our family. Our son started at 3 months old and although going back to work was hard, I have never doubted that he is in great hands. Strong focus on developmental milestones and having fun which is important to us!

Yet, at all times children are being continuously challenged by learning goals we set for them. At Edgewood Academy we foster your child's positive self image, along with his developmental growth in the areas of intellectual, social, physical, and emotional skills, through a variety of group activities, individual play, and quiet periods.
