Our Philisophy about Early Childhood Education is that play is esential to a young child's ability to learn. Play is more than playing with toys. As children explore in their play, they are problem solving, develoing their imaginations, learning important social skills, making discoveries of how things work and more.
Pushing academics at too early an age for the children will actually impede their learning later in life. Many studies have been conducted to verify the importance of play-based curriculum for preschoolers. You can find links and articles on our RESOURCE page to read for yourself.
At Shining Stars Preschool our goal is to develop a life long love of learning for each child and for them to see that learning can be exciting and fun!
