2. How is All-Star Readers different from other learning centers?

  • We do not have individual classrooms where kids stay in one room all day; instead we have academic centers (art, dramatic play, literacy, math and science, outdoor area). Although children stay with their same teacher and their same group of students, they transition to a new center every 45 minutes.

  • Preschool full-time enrollment is a schedule that begins as early as 7 a.m. and can end at 6:30 p.m. Although it is not mandatory for the students to attend all those hours, that is the time our services are available to you and your children.
  • Preschool part-time enrollment includes a schedule that totals to 20 hours per week. We recommend a daily schedule that includes the following time blocks: 8 AM to 12 noon or 2 PM to 6 PM. We do so because those are our hours of instruction. If this schedule is not conducive to your needs, we can create a schedule that is better suited for you and your child
