Our mission at Growing Stars is to foster the development of a positive self-image and instill confidence in all of the children in our center through the joy of learning and socializing. We strive to provide the best possible quality care and learning experiences for our students through a partnership between families and staff.


Our program focuses on developing physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills through a well organized, structured, curriculum designed to stimulate the children’s own creativity, imagination and independence.

At Growing Stars we understand that each individual child has a natural desire to learn and explore. We work hard to motivate their curiosity while encouraging the children to develop a strong sense of pride and achievement.

Growing Stars provides a quality childcare experience in a comfortable, familiar, home-like environment. Our program reflects the belief that learning takes place primarily through exploratory activities, discovery and play. The amount of adult guidance varies with each activity, as it is our belief that a great program offers both directed and non-directed experiences, encouraging your child to plan and think about their actions.


Each of our rooms provide a child-centered environment with a wide range of materials and developmentally appropriate activities, which allows each child to create, manipulate, explore and discover according to their particular and unique interests. Each child is valued and recognized as a unique individual with a large capacity for growth and development.

A partnership between parent/caregiver and staff is very important in your child’s experience at Growing Stars. Good communication and teamwork is essential to full-fill the needs of your child and give him/her a meaningful learning experience. We believe that children need to be given choices to help them become independent, learn self-control and to become responsible.
