Little Shining Stars accepts children from 6 weeks of age until 6 years old. We also welcome school-aged children after school and when their school is closed. Our goal is to enhance each child's gross and fine motor skills before they enter Kindergarten.
Our Home Day Care is located in Pompton Lakes, NJ. We have a nice size bedroom where we designed it for the infant room. We have cribs, a changing table, high chairs, a swinging chair, and plenty of safe infant toys. We have a Preschool room which is the playroom/classroom. This room has many educational toys including puzzles, board games, computer station, v-smile, painting, listening center, craft station, and a mini library with many books for all ages. We also have blocks, legos, matchbox cars, Dora dollhouse, dolls, a kitchen station, trains, musical instruments, dress-up, and a T.V. with many of children's VHS and DVD tapes.
We will also have Preschool and Pre-K classes Monday through Friday in the morning. We have an excellent age-appropriate curriculum which will prepare each child for Kindergarten. All the children's classwork is sent home for the parent's to see what their child is learning in school.
We also offer a Summer Program from June thru August. Please see our link above on more details on our Summer Program.
We have a fenced in backyard with a big wooden swing set, sandbox, see-saw, slides, playhouse, and riding toys. We live on a quiet street where the teacher will take the children for nice walks to the local park, weather permitting.
Our hours are from 7:30am-6:00pm all year round except for holidays. We only charge for the days your child comes to school. We credit holidays, vacations, and sick days with a doctor's note.
We have a microwave and a refrigerator on the premises for your convenience. We supply cold breakfast, snacks in the morning and afternoon which is included in the tuition rate.
Little Shining Stars knows how important it is for the parents to know that their children are getting the care and education they need, but also to make the tuition very affordable. The Owner works with the parents, so they can afford to send their children to the daycare and live comfortably. The tuition can be paid monthly or weekly.
Our mission as a daycare center is that each child who is enrolled with us is treated as a "Shining Star."
