Early Steps is a hands-on non-profit organization. Our sole mission is to promote racial diversity within New York City independent schools. We  accomplish this by increasing the enrollment of children of color beginning at the kindergarten and first grade levels. At Early Steps we are dedicated to our mission, our children and their families, and our member schools. Families, children and schools are treated with honesty and respect as we strive to find the best independent school setting for each child. Early Steps school advisors are both professional and compassionate. They are trusted by schools and families alike to balance the needs of both parties, always with an eye on what’s best for each child.
