Meet Our Principal

Principal: Amy Peltz

I grew up in West Hartford, Connecticut. Some of my earliest memories are those of walking to and from school with neighborhood friends, letting myself into an unlocked home, grabbing a snack before heading back outside to play. There were always kids ready to make afternoon plans, building forts, kickball teams and riding bikes. My summers were spent on the beach in a small town on the Long Island Sound. Swimming, horseback riding and picking wild raspberries and blueberries from bushes filled my days. Life was not structured, nor did it have to be. The care and needs of children have changed in our present life.

College brought me to the Boston area.  I graduated from Pine Manor College with a BA in Developmental Psychology and a minor in Early Education.  The academics provided me with a wealth of information surrounding  growth, education and developmental needs for young children. My first formal teacher position was working as an assistant with toddlers at Temple Shir Tikva in Weston, Ma.

 

Over the years my understanding of and passion for working with young children grew.  Embracing early education as my professional direction I continued to study, received my Master’s degree from Wheelock College and solidified my vision of the importance and impact of quality education and care. Working from teacher to supervisor in a classroom setting, serving as adjunct faculty at a Community College, performing multiple training workshops for early education based agencies and, most importantly,  raising twin boys, are all experiences that shape my perspective in all areas critical to leading the best possible practice for children, teachers and families. 

 

Under the most unique contact, serendipitously, I have come to the Stars family.   The unique and thoughtful educational and care experience that Tonya and Sydney Stump offer to teachers, families and young children are beyond anything that I have seen put in practice in my career as an early childhood educator. The warmth, dedication and detail to excellence is unprecedented, and I am thrilled to apply my knowledge and experience in the field to take us to the next level through the Stars philosophy and model. I look forward to working with all those coming into their newest creation, Starboard Academy.  For your young child(ren), the educational journey begins here; I am thrilled with this moment in partnering with you to build a solid educational foundation for future academic success today and beyond!

"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.
