Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

We believe that a child learns best what he or she experiences. As teachers, we facilitate their learning environment so that they have hands on opportunities to learn and develop their knowledge of the world around them. We follow the High Reach Curriculum which is research based in nature and allows children a part in their own learning environment.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our teachers are highly qualified. Our toddler and two's teachers have thier CDAs and the 3 year old and 4 year old teachers have thier degrees in early education. We are not babysitting your children, we are teaching them.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

At Rising Star Academy we provide a quality educational experience for your child. We believe that a parent should not have to chose between daycare and school, so we provide you with both the before and aftercare working parents need and a structured school day for your childâ??s academic, social, and emotional growth. It is important to us that each child is given the opportunity to learn in a warm and nurturing environment that is conducive to developing minds.
All of our classes are theme based, and center managed. This means that while your children are involved in learning centers, they are also developing cognitive skills and understanding centered on the theme for that month. We use the High Reach curriculum which best incorporates our philosophy for learning. High Reach is research based and provides teachers with a guideline for each theme. Your child will be learning self help skills, independence, problem solving, logical thinking, all while â??playingâ?? in centers and participating in small groups with their teacher. Playing exposes them to deeper learning and a greater understanding of the world around them.
