Preschool

At A Shining Star Learning Center, our preschool rooms are designed for the active child discovering and learning through our play-based curriculum.  The children are encouraged to develop skills and creativity through both self-directed and structured activities and enjoy a variety of activities with emphasis on school readiness.

Preschool rooms have a wide variety of age-appropriate toys and educational equipment to dramatically recreate the world around them.  An outside playground area, designed especially for the preschool child, is a fun place to play. On rainy or cold days, the preschoolers enjoy playing in the indoor gym.  The staff adds fun, creative large motor activities and movement games for large motor coordination.

The preschool rooms are adjoined by a restroom equipped with child sized sinks and toilets. 

A Shining Star Preschool graduates participate in a promotional ceremony each May before entering into kindergarten.
