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.
