Accreditations
Wish Upon A Star is proud to have a Gold Seal accreditation through A.P.P.L.E AND N.E.C.P.A! Early childhood programs that are accredited have demonstrated a commitment to providing high quality programs for young children and their families. Gold Seal accredited centers are held to much stricter guideline compared to those centers who do not hold an accreditation. The accreditation process requires each school to meet specific quality standards in areas such as interactions among teachers and children, staff to child ratios, developmental appropriateness of the curriculum, staff qualifications, health and safety, and administration. It also requires schools to undergo a validation process to verify their compliance with both APPLE and NECPA guidelines which may be more stringent than state licensing requirements. We pride ourselves on being one of the best child care centers in the area.

WUAS
is proud to have been selected, as the ONLY child care center in the county, to participate in a new program called MyON.

"MyON is a complete literacy solution that reinvents student reading. Students become immersed in reading titles targeted specifically for them, through individualized profiles. MyON includes features only digital content can offer, like spoken word audio to model fluency, sentence highlighting and an embedded dictionary. Using embedded LexileŽ reading assessments, our teachers can measure and forecast reading growth."

We are so excited to bring the magic of MyON into the classrooms! We have even been provided with an IPAD for the children to use. Not only will we be introducing this technology to our VPK classes, but to our PRE-K classes as well! Visit the myon.com website for more information.

Our Philosophy

Wish Uon A Star entrance



Our objective is to see that your child is loved and well cared for during the hours away from your care. We strive to make your child feel accepted and appreciated, as well as to stimulate his/her excitement for learning. We attempt for each child to learn good personal manners, as well as healthy eating habits. Each child is encouraged to express themselves through their own ideas and experiences through play. Our desire is to help in developing a happy, well-rounded, disciplined child.

We believe that play is a child's work and children play to learn, grow, and to experience the world around them.

Wish Upon A Star encompasses a philosophy by which children are allowed to develop naturally, each at their own individual pace. Therefore, our programs are based on the individual social, intellectual, and physical development of each child. We believe children are happy and secure when they have plenty of opportunities to succeed each day. Success breeds self confidence, and the self confident child approaches learning as fun and actively searches for information and solutions to problems. As a result, they develop into well-rounded capable adults.

To make this philosophy work, our teaching staff guides each child in a clean, safe and specially prepared environment using carefully designed materials, to give children the opportunity to learn through choice and discovery.

We accept infants, toddlers, preschoolers as well as school-aged children, without regard to their race, color, religion, creed, national origin, gender, or any other category designated by law. Wish Upon A Star is licensed by the state of Florida.
