At Little Stars, it is our belief that the foundation for a successful Early Childhood Education is the fostering of a positive self-image.
In this regard, our program is based on the understanding that each child’s development is an individual process.
We strive to meet the individual needs of the whole child through social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.
Little Stars is dedicated to providing a safe and joyful beginning for all of our children. We are a NAEYC accredited school since 2005 and offer FREE Universal Pre-K for all children who turn 4 before December 31st. Each classroom provides an environment where children are free to interact, inquire and extend their understanding through hands-on experiences.
In this way, children are encouraged to grow in an atmosphere that is nurturing, accepting of individual differences and developmentally appropriate. Our philosophy regards the years of early childhood as being of crucial importance for the development of full adult potential in the areas of personality, emotional stability and intellectual growth.
Every opportunity is provided for the individual child to flourish and grow in the healthiest possible environment.
Our program is designed to provide intellectual stimulation and also practices and teaches human values and healthy attitudes. We, as educators, are receptive to change and are responsive to new theories in Early Childhood Education.
Our school makes a great effort to teach children to learn how to work and play both independently and cooperatively, live effectively with other children, develop self-identity, value the rights of others and to take turns and share.
