  • Shining Stars Daycare In Algonquin Is Good For Your Child’s Social

  • Parents tend to feel guilty about enrolling their children at daycare centers. While this is normal, daycares in Algonquin provide wonderful opportunities for children including social interactions with other people. This also allows parents to run errands smoothly and have time for themselves. 

    Studies show that children suffered less emotional, conduct, relationship, and attention problems when they attended high-quality daycare for at least one year. On the other hand, children had more difficulty coping when they were watched over by a parent or a babysitter. 

    Moreover, the author of the study suggests that regular interaction with daycare staff, following rules and instructions, and getting stimulus from playing in a conducive environment all contribute to the wellbeing of the child. 

    Children can greatly benefit from our preschool programs at Algonquin at Shining Stars Daycare. These include educational and nutritional components from our highly-trained educational professionals who excel in early childhood care.

    • We appreciate so much for the extraordinary care you provide to our children. The frequent updates at the end of each day help us understand our kids and their little joys throughout the day. We can count on every teacher to know all about our children, which is amazing.
