Mariner's Star Child Development Center

Providing Care and Stimulating Minds

Infant & Toddler Care: At Mariner's Star Child Development Center, we recognize that the infant and toddler group is a diverse one, and that each child is different. We recognize and encourage these differences, while at the same time providing opportunities for the Infant/Toddler to enhance their development progress. Goals have to be constantly reassessed in terms of the current needs of the children in the classroom. Our center provides a teacher-to-child ratio of 1:4 for infants and toddlers aged more than 2 1/2 weeks to 30 months; 1:8 for toddlers 30 months to 36 months. 

Preschool & Kindergarten:The preschool program cares for (potty trained) children ranging from 3 to young 4 years of age. The rooms are arranged into several interest centers to allow each child to freely choose from a variety of challenging and creative activities. There are large spaces for group activities as well as smaller areas for one-on-one interaction with the teacher. The center provides teacher-to-child ratios of 1:10 for children three years of age and 1:12 for children 4 and 5 years of age .  

We Are Currently Accepting Applications for the 2010 - 2011 School Year

Our Mission:

Our mission at the Mariner’s Star Child Development Center is to supplement the home with a flexible program that is designed to encourage and enhance the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of each child.  We accomplish our mission through a curriculum that provides activities that stimulate growth and awareness in all areas of development. These activities are designed to fit to meet the needs of each child at their own developmental level. Our daily routine encourages the children to function independently and responsibly while still feeling secure in a consistent environment. Our staff provides positive guidance for the children and assist them in learning about themselves and the world around them in a loving and safe environment.
