A Step Ahead Preschool & Montessori has been in the Ahwatukee area for 15 years, offering the community preschool programs and a starting point for children beginning their education.

Maysa Fini, owner of the school, said many of their enrollments come through parent referrals, and as of right now the school houses 70 students.

“A Step Ahead is a Montessori-based school, but we are not 100 percent Montessori. We have a combination of both Montessori and traditional style,” Fini said.

Fini said by having teachers who are Montessori certified and others who are not, allow the students to gain the best education to assist them with the transition of entering into public schools.
