Welcome to the Rising Stars Academy!

We recognize that all children can learn and that preschool children learn primarily through playful interaction with people and objects.  Our programs provide nurturing environments to stimulate children's social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.

We encourage creative exploration with a balance of child-initiated and teacher facilitated activities that are age appropriate and designed to foster appreciation of diverse cultures.  Our programs recognize the home and community as valuable resources, and parents as a child's first teacher.
