I have no words to describe how awesome Morning Stars is, we`ve been a part of this school for the past 4 years and it`s the best decision we`ve ever made! Now my son is in 1st grade and we are homeschooling because we couldn`t find anything like Morning Stars around the area. My daughter is in Tk right now and it`s surprising how much she has learned in just one month with Ms. Melissa and Ms. Carol!! We are so thankful for them!

I attended Morning Stars Learning Program from preschool to kindergarten. I am now 34 years old and have received my doctorate. I truly believe that my foundation for learning started with Morning Stars Learning Program. I started with Miss Melissa at a tough transitional period in my childhood. Miss Melissa's kindness and dedication are something I will always remember. I've been fortunate to keep in touch with her throughout the years and I've been able to witness her dedication to her curriculum and students. She recently downsized her school after 30 years to a more intimate class experience allowing students to gain an even further 1-1 experience. If you're looking for a strong foundation for your children, I highly recommend Morning Stars Learning Program.
