"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 Star Preschools! 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 Star Preschools 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.

"Star Preschools 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!

"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!

"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.
