Shining Stars Academy is a wonderful Child Care Facility. My 4 year old son has been attending Shining Stars Academy for almost a year. I have been very happy with our experience there. The staff is amazing, very attentive, caring, and always very nice. my son loves going to school, and he enjoys her teachers. The offer P.E and Mr. Music on Friday, and my son just loves it. This is the best facility I would recommended it to everyone.

Their vision about a caring and loving environment is not true. At the beginning when new owners took over we thought things were going to change for the better, but they did for the worse, they changed the faade only, they changed the floors, the walls, things that are not as important as having good loving teachers and directors. All they cared for was getting the 5 start rating, so they started hiring anyone who had a degree but not necessarily a passion for caring and nurturing a child??s live. This center has new teachers every month, teachers leave in the middle of the school year. Incidents between kids are handle poorly, very poorly. Teachers and directors punish kids for no reason, they go by what one kid or another kid said, adults do not use common sense or righteous judgment afraid of losing parents money. They make you sign papers so you don??t sue them. They even offered a family money so they would not take them to court. Owner??s son gets away when misbehaves. There are No planned activities for after scholars. But Mayra and Vic take your money anyway to keep them. These people are making money out of parents that think are leaving their kids in good hands. But you will have a teacher that knows nothing about your child or how the classroom gets along the next month? Horrible experience.

I have 2 kids at Shining Stars. My oldest son attended the school under a different name and it became so poor that I was putting him on waitlists elsewhere to get him out. Then Shining Stars took over and made huge improvements. It's 5 stars, the curriculum and teachers are wonderful, and communication and attention in each classroom is great. It's small enough that all the teachers know both my kids (even if they haven't made it to their class yet). This makes transitions from one class to the next easier. It's also very clean and I can count on one hand the number of times my kids have been sick since Shining Stars took over 2 years ago. The owners are very hands-on and invest to ensure the school is very competitive. My kids are learning a ton, the environment is caring, and they love it!

My son attends Shining Stars Academy at Ballantyne location, and we are sooooooooo happy with this center. My son loves this center very much. He has positive attitude about school when he comes home everyday. He tells me he loves his teacher. That is the best sign out of all when your child tells you that. It just makes my day knowing that I don't have to worry about my child at all while I am at work. Mayra is the best person I have come accross in the sense of day care/school profession. She is the best at communication skills as well as marketing. I really am very glad that I have enrolled my son at Shining Stars.

My son attended Shining Stars at Ballantyne when it was still All Star Children's Academy. When Vic and Mayra Shahid took over, the improvement was dazzling. The center is immaculately clean with great facilities for the kids. They upgraded all the rooms and put real educational programs in place. My son graduated from their kindergarten program and was able to start 1st grade early because of the great education he received there.

When my daughter was born, there was never any doubt that she would attend Shining Stars too. The staff are well-qualified and really care about the children. My daughter adores here teachers! Vic and Mayra are accessible and responsive to parents. It's a great place and a very competitive value for the money. I highly recommend this center.

I enrolled my children at this facility thinking it was a great program. However, while watching a live stream from their webcam, I seen a teacher pick up my 1 year old by her arm and drag her across the room. I immediately contacted the school and was lied to repeatedly ("nothing happened"). After persistence, I was able to view the footage 3 days after the incident. I was enraged! The owners then offered money, so we would not pursue the matter further. However, the sad part to this story is that the teacher is still employed with Shining Stars at the Ballantyne location. The previous reviews were all written by the centers owner - Vic Shahid. I urge you to request more information from the school. The incident occurred on January 5, 2010, at 3:40 pm.??

This is a privately run company with 2 centers that are consistently rated at the top by the State licensing based on all their parameters for rating child care centers.
