Hear What Parents Have to Say…
"They gave us the most precious gift a working parent could ever ask for"As a parent, there's nothing more reassuring than to see your child confidently walk to their classroom and almost forget to hug you goodbye because they're ready to play and learn.
"There is also an app that the teachers document diapers/potty, meals, naps and even pictures"We LOVE bright star! When we lived in San Antonio before moving to the Austin area, we took our daughter to a daycare there where unfortunately we learned that you get what you pay for.
"they have an actual CURRICULUM; the teachers are INVESTED"We started bright star in the fall of 2019, and it is a complete turnaround. My daughter is excited about school, she never wants to leave at the end of the day, and she adores her teachers.
"The school is so organized with their lesson plans and theme days"The teachers are top notch! The facility is bright and fun. I love that they get to spend time in the library, theatre room, art room and cafeteria instead of staying in one classroom the whole day.
"I love the reports and pictures I receive from the teachers throughout the week"We appreciate how clean the school is kept, and for us, that is a huge plus. It is so difficult to keep germs under control with kids, so we are happy the school makes an extra effort to keep the facility clean.
"They accommodate for what we need and want for our child Two weeks in at Bright Star Academy and my 3 year old was caught up on counting"The teachers, administrative staff, chef, and everyone that works there feels like family.
"Bright Star has already helped so much with her socialization skills"The way they are able to tend to every baby’s need and keep track of who needs to be fed, changed, needs a nap, wants to be held or rocked, who has a food allergy, etc. is simply amazing!
"They are organized and put together and you can tell"They are organized and put together and you can tell everyone is very well trained and that is something that is reassuring when you decide to leave your brand new baby for the first time.
"I absolutely believe we made the right decision with Bright Star."The Infant teachers have been so wonderful to our family. I absolutely believe we made the right decision with Bright Star.
"Very cooperative and friendly staff"I love their toddler team. Very cooperative and friendly staff! My kiddo is doing great there and it seems like he is learning so much each day.
"We’ve had experience with other places and Bright Star has been our favorite"Our son loves his teachers and is always smiling when I pick him up at the end of the day. Teachers from other classes know his name and it makes it feel more like a family.
"BrightStar staffs and principals worked hard to welcome him"You can get a daily report through their app, with photos and all details about your kid at school. Definitively, I do recommend BrightStar to all families that care about your kid security, health, development, and care.
"she has learned more than I can imagine a 2 year old would know!"Bright Star has completely erased any doubts I've had and provided such a loving, educational, and nurturing environment for my baby girl! I am truly grateful for the caring, energetic, and kind staff that works here and would recommend them to anyone looking to get their child into a schooling program.
"The teachers are amazing & the place is clean."The teachers are amazing & the place is clean. Can't ask for much more than that! Oh & my 2 year old already knows his alphabet, numbers, colors & shapes! That's all thanks to Bright Star.
"my children have had a wonderful, loving experience"Thanks to the wonderful staff, from the principal to cooks to teachers, my children have had a wonderful, loving experience.
"Thank you for all you do for Starboard Academy to providing a great learning environment for our children, with the right people."We hope Starboard has an awesome teacher appreciation week - You are all so very appreciated, especially in a time like this with a pendamic.
"We are so happy that Starboard Academy opened up in Plymouth!"We couldn't imagine another facility being so considerate and conscientious about mackenzie's food allergies. You have gone above and beyond to make sure mackenzie has healthy meals, snacks, and treats that she can enjoy safely.
We can't say enough good thing and this card isn't big enough. We love the communication, photos and updates from the Kangarootime App. Both of my kids have grown so much and excited more than we could have imagined. Mackenzie comes home singing a new song each week, and can even identify some letters and numbers and she's not even yet! Jamison can identify all of his letters and numbers in reading and writing and knows his letter sounds. He is really going to miss your school, especially the infamous PIRATE SHIP PLAYGROUND. Thank you for all you have done!
