"I have always been impressed with how Rising Stars handles stages in a child’s life and has different rooms, staff and curriculum to address them. I have been on the sideline for these progressions and have seen first-hand the result of their thoughtful design." - Kip D
Our Amazing Staff
All of our caring staff are fully CPR & First Aid certified and most have continuing education in the childhood development field. We have experienced very low turnover in an otherwise high turnover career. Many of our staff have been with us since 2007.
Our highly trained teachers strive to create a warm and welcoming environment every day and take pride in their creativity while adhering to a curriculum that’s based on weekly thematic units.
