Health and Safety Measures Set Our School Apart

Meet Our Principal: Nicole Gallahue

Hello Starboard Families!

My name is Nikki Gallahue. I live in Whitman with my husband John and dog Fozzie. I am so excited to be a part of the Star Preschools team! Working with children has always been a passion of mine as I have babysat and taught gymnastics since I was 14 years old. I graduated from Sacred Heart High School in Kingston in 2009 and continued my education at Curry College in Milton. I studied Early Childhood Education and Integrated Liberal Studies at Curry and worked at the campus child care center. After graduating in 2013, I attended the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and received my Masters of Education in Educational Administration, graduating in 2018. 

I am licensed by the state of Massachusetts to teach Pre-K through grade 6. I spent time teaching early childhood and Title One in private and public schools. Although I enjoyed my work in the school systems, I knew I eventually wanted to get back to my roots in child care. I am certified to teach infants, toddlers, and preschool and have had my own classroom in each of those age groups! I obtained my Director I and II Certification through the state, and have been an assistant director at a child care center before embarking on my journey at Starboard! My favorite thing about working with children is watching them grow and hit milestones. I value my role in their education and strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment for them. I consider myself lucky to be able to build relationships with all different types of families and acknowledge that finding a school where you can trust that your children are safe and cared for is so important. I can’t wait to meet you!

"They are very caring, and kind."
It has been great to see the changes and improvements that this school has gone through. I am so happy with the progress my daughter has shown, they were very accommodating when she was struggling with separation anxiety. They are very caring, and kind. It is obvious that they really care about the kids education and progress. I would highly recommend to anybody with a little one looking for a place to send them.
