StarChild Academy believes that education begins in the cradle and that every opportunity should be given to children to gain knowledge. For this reason, we begin our education program, including foreign languages, in our infant room. We know that the younger a child is when he or she learns to read, the easier it will be for him or her to succeed later in school.

Our structured learning environment focuses on pre-reading skills in our toddler and preschool classrooms and on reading fluency and comprehension skills in our Pre-K program. StarChild Academy offers specially designed, customized curricula for each age group.

Our program features nationally recognized curricula taught by well-trained, caring teachers. StarChild Academy utilizes the McGraw Hill Open Court Reading, Saxon Math, and A Beka Phonics curricula. Activities such as recognizing the alphabet, beginning to read, working with numbers, exploring with arts and crafts, and refining eye-hand coordination and problem solving skills are emphasized by StarChild Academy’s teachers.

The developing personality of each child becomes more evident as they mature. We make certain that the teachers at StarChild Academy take special care to watch the progress of each child and to report their progress to parents daily in writing.

StarChild Academy’s teachers know that a positive approach is the best approach. Using praise creates a good attitude towards learning and helps build a child’s self-esteem. Learning should be a fun, rewarding, and stress-free experience for the children and the teacher.
