Early Pre-school Pioneers Program
At Academy of Stars in Barrington, our approach in our early pre-school program for children ages 2 to 3 years old is a holistic and nurturing approach to develop self-help skills, language and social/ emotional milestones by increasing communication skills and creativity. We do that through providing lots of love, nurturing, stimulation and joy every day for your child.
Our teachers put an emphasis on exploration and problem-solving as well as preparing your child for a pre-school program.
