Preschool & Pre-K


 “It is important to me to find a loving and caring environment to leave my children in. Shining Stars preschool was the perfect fit. I love this school with its emphasis on a Christian education. The experienced teachers exhibit Christ's love in every aspect of the classroom. My two sons have thoroughly enjoyed their preschool and pre-k experiences. Not only did they develop academically and socially, but they also grew in their depth of character and love for Christ.”  -- Pleased Parent

Whole Child Approach to Education

At “Shining Stars” preschool, we use a whole child approach to education, which emphasizes physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual developmental stages.  All stages of development are considered equally important.  Children learn best as they actively participate in different activities.  Our program's goal is to have your child well-prepared for Kindergarten and beyond.


Mrs. Dana Stephan is the lead teacher for all of our Preschool and PreK classes and Mrs. Sue Wetzel is the co-teacher for all three classes.
