Morning Stars Learning Program

Established: 1993

Now more than ever, researchers confirm what we at Morning Stars Learning Program have known for years – children do their most important learning before age five. That’s why, in addition to lots of love and attention, everything we do at Morning Stars involves early childhood development.

Parents are a valuable part of a successful child-care program. Through parental involvement, we are better able to meet the development and personal needs of children. As child-care professionals, we can serve as available resources for parents and their children concerning most areas of development. Therefore, we like to think that families and child-care centers can and should work together to provide an environment that facilitates the growth of a child into a physically and emotionally healthy individual. Staff members feel that the program should focus on the development of the whole child. To do this, we look at the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social needs of each child.

We work with children ages 3 years to 7 years. We offer multi-age-grouping. We feel that young children in multi-age groups have more opportunities to learn from older children in the group, and every child has a chance to teach the other group members. Peer teaching and learning give children a sense of belonging. It not only enhances a child's sense of mastery and work but also the appreciation of others. Thank you for choosing Morning Stars Learning Program for your child's first early learning experience.
