Shining Star School
- Shining Star School offers in Central Houston a Mixed Age Waldorf Kindergarten for children 3 1/2 to 6 years old.
- In addition, we have plans for Parent-Child Classes for children 18 months to 3 years old, a pre-K Program for children 2 1/2 to 4 years old, and are exploring the possibility of starting a Waldorf grades program.
- We at Shining Star strive to offer a balanced education for the "whole child", one which awakens the mind, enlivens the heart and engages the hands.
