Our History

Primeros Pasos, Inc. was founded by a grass roots group of caring citizens who saw a need for a high-quality bilingual education and child care center in the Georgetown, DE area.

Primeros Pasos was determined to offer its services in self-owned facilities, and in 2007 purchased a parcel of land on Savannah Road in Georgetown. Planning and fundraising for a permanent facility was initiated. For over ten years, due to a generous offer of classroom space from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Georgetown, Primeros Pasos provided services for twenty children while raising funds for its expansion. Finally, in April 2017, after receiving gifts and grants from over 200 individuals, foundations, churches and governmental agencies, Primeros Pasos was able to complete Phase 1 of its plan and moved into a 4,000-square foot, state-of- the-art early learning center on its Savannah Road property. Our school is currently licensed to serve 39 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years.

The Future

In keeping with its efforts to meet the educational needs of as many children and their families as possible, Primeros Pasos has developed a Phase 2 plan which includes an addition which will increase its capacity.
