My family moved to the area 4 months ago and we got started looking for day care for our 18 month old. Shining Star was right down the street from our house so we naturally started there. We were impressed that the facility had locked doors with a key pad for entry, cameras in the rooms to check on our daughter throughout the day, everything was clean and bright and they even have a police officer in the evening to help with traffic on Lancaster Hwy. We loved that the outside play area was appropriate for her age and that they had an indoor gym for extra activities or for when the weather was poor.

Since our daughter has been there for 4 months she has been learning so much. The center does a great job to involve parents on the daily details of their child's life. They offered a Thanksgiving lunch for parents at the center, they occasionally provide breakfast to go in the mornings for parents and each day we get a daily activity sheet of what they ate and did during the day. We are also very impressed that everyone that works there is always happy and so nice. Everyone greets you in the morning and makes you feel at home.

Overall we are very please with the center and happy that our daughter is in great care. We would recommend this center to anyone.

Excellent Child Care Facility. My 3 year old daughter has been attending Shining Stars Academy for almost a year. We have been very happy with our experience there. The staff is amazing, very attentive, caring, and always very nice.

Amazing Childcare Facility!!!
I give Shining Stars Academy -Ballantyne a 5 star rating. My daughter who is 3 years old has been attending the facility for almost a year. She absolutely loves it and so do we. She looks forward to going to school. We have had amazing teachers. The technology and curriculum is great. She has learned a lot. Our daughter also attends extra activities such as music, gymnastics, and soccer, which are all offered at the facility. That is very convenient and a great bonus. She looks forward to those days. I would highly recommend Shining Stars Academy.

I have been exceptionally pleased with this school. My daughter currently attends this academy. She is 18 months old and prior to starting at Shinning Star Academy had never been with anyone except immediate family. I was very apprehensive about leaving her in the care of someone else. I searched and searched for the right school. I went and looked at the Ballantyne school and fell in love. Not only is the building immaculate and beautiful, I was greeted with smiles and was made to feel at home. While getting my tour I was brought into the room where the 18 month old babies were and they were down for a nap. There was one child however, who couldn't fall asleep, and the teacher in the classroom was sitting down rubbing her back. I was impressed. Since that day I have not been let down. They have a 5 star rating for a reason. I am able to log into the room where my child is and watch what is happening. My daughters head teacher Mrs. Dei is absolutely amazing. She loves my daughter the way I love my daughter. When we pull in she starts dancing in the back seat and upon entering the classroom she reaches for Mrs. Dei and waves bye bye! I have had no problems with this school. My daughter only goes to the school 2 days a week, and if something comes up in the week and I need to change the day, they always work with me. I live on Lake Wylie and go to school 20 minutes South. This daycare is 20 minutes North from my house. It is definitely out of the way however, WELL WORTH THE DRIVE. There is something to be said about peace of mind. I recommend this daycare twice over. Lastly I just want to say that when I went to look at other daycares I didn't feel anything when I walked in the door. When I walked into Shinning Star Academy in Ballantyne I knew I was around people who loved kids and weren't in this for the money. And THAT to me....is priceless!

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.??
