Meet Our Principal

IMG 3992

Hello, my name is Cheryl Giangregorio. I graduated from Eastern Nazarene College in 2015 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Education. I hold a Director II certification from the Department of Early Education and Care. I have been working in this facility since 2006.

I started as a Pre-K teacher, then taught older toddlers, along the way I assisted Directors, became Director and in 2019 I became the Principal for Little Stars Learning Center! My heart strings run deep into this school and I strive to meet the needs of each individual child and family while keeping a positive culture for all!

I hold sincere belief in the importance and value of quality early childhood education and care. I am so excited to continue to create and maintain an ever changing unique and modern learning environment that stands above the rest! 

NAEYC Accredited

We are proud to be a NAEYC accredited school. The National Association For The Education Of Young Children is the nation’s leader in preschool accreditation. This mark certifies our standards are of the highest quality. At Little Stars we want to empower your child for success! Having this accreditation shows our program has the tools to provide the best learning experiences for young children and the highest quality professional preparation of educators.

90% Of Our Teachers Are Degreed and EEC Certified

Having a degree along with EEC certification means our teachers have a higher level of education and experience. Through extensive on-going training to educate, nurture, and help your child grow our early childhood educators strive to be experts in the care and education of young children. They know that their role can make the difference in your child’s success. Empowering children through education means a love for learning that lasts a lifetime.

Health, Wellness and Happy Support From Our ESA “Ausland”

Our goal is not only to care for and teach your child, but to support their health, wellness and happiness too.  Nutritious food choices, daily tooth brushing and good hygiene, are only a few of our added care essentials. In addition, we are proud to be one of the only schools that has an ESA (Emotional Support Animal)!  This amazing feature truly set us apart. Our ESA “Ausland” is beloved by both the kids and parents alike. She is a friendly companion who plays an interictal role at our school by making a dramatic difference in the physical independence, emotional well-being and comfort of your child.

Locally Owned and Operated, We Are Family

We want to be an extension of your family and believe family comes first. Little Stars is locally owned and operated. From the moment you enter the lobby, you might notice that it just feels good. Our atmosphere is bright, beautiful, warm and inviting, not cold and institutional like most schools. This homelike environment reduces stress while encouraging families and children to want to stay. Let us be your second home.

A Positive Parent Partnership Makes A Difference

Understanding the needs of our families and the benefits of working together fosters trust. This positive partnership helps children grow and learn. Using our digital parent app, Kaymbu, real time photos, videos and developmental milestones are captured and sent to you. This communication helps strengthen relationships between home and school. We offer open visits in your child’s classroom welcoming our parents directly into the learning experience. When children see important people in their lives working together, they feel valued, respected, confident and safe building a strong foundation from cradle to kindergarten.

Extraordinary Care Starts With Small Group Sizes And Low Teacher Child Ratios

Small class sizes with low teacher to child ratios allows exceptional care. Having fewer students to teach gives our teachers the opportunity to provide a more challenging curriculum with quality one on one individualized attention for each child.

Low teacher to child ratios means…

  • More quality time and individualized care and instruction in the classroom for each child
  • Increased interest level in children during small group activities
  • Projects can be more challenging with fewer students to teach
  • Lower stress in general for students and teachers
  • Long term improvement of teacher retention
  • More detailed assessments can be delivered to parents

Meeting Your Family’s Needs Through Extended Hours, Fewer Closings And Learning Enrichments

We know the importance of finding a program that meets your family’s needs. Offering longer hours of operation, with fewer closings and added learning enrichment programs, are a few of the ways we accomplish this goal. Giving children experiences and activities beyond the normal curriculum, with opportunities for family participation, make learning fun and allow parents to be directly involved in their child’s education.

A Love For Language And Literacy In Everything We Do

A love for language and literacy is cultivated in everything we do. Giving children the opportunity to have a variety of experiences through books, vocabulary, alphabet knowledge and fine mother development, builds both their cognitive and writing skills. Our classroom toys, shelves and equipment are labeled with pictures and written words in both English and Spanish. This detailed feature helps children know what things are, where they go and more importantly helps them recognize letters, make up words and understand that words have meaning.
