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.

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
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.
