Our School

  • Our philosophy is basic… we put the child first! Everything we do builds a positive environment where children are safe, loved, nurtured and learning.  Our beautifully remodeled facility allows your child to be in an environment that is clean, safe, and provides the newest technological products to ensure that your child receives the most from their experience here.  Every toy and play area is designed for learning… whether it be the block center that enhances a child’s motor skills or the sand and water table that teaches your child the basic principles of physics.  We thrive that every child becomes the best they can be! Here at Shining Stars you’ll find that no one can match the combination of  experience, resources, and educational programs we offer.  

  • What do we teach….

     

    Infant / Toddlers –

    We teach our students as young as 6 months old baby sign language – a specialized sign language used to communicate with preverbal infants and toddlers. It is intended to help very young children to express their needs and wishes earlier than they could otherwise. Baby signing experts believe that frustration and tantrums can be avoided by closing the gap between desire to communicate and the ability to do so. There are three benefits of using sign language with our children for both parents and teachers. They are practical: less fussing and more fun, emotional: creates a closer parental bond, and cognitive: boosts brain development.

    Preschool/ Private Kindergarten –

    Begin your child’s education with our exciting Pre-Kindergarten curriculum designed to balance work and play and awaken a students love of learning. We provide hands – on activities and manipulatives that help focus your child’s readiness skills and prepare them for an academic school year.
