Welcome Families! Back to School

We are a vibrant community of thinkers and learners. All our work is firmly grounded in the school’s mission to offer a quality Montessori education, infused with culturally inclusive principles, to guide children to develop to their fullest potential. Since 2010, Shining Stars has used the Montessori Method to teach students to be respectful, critical thinkers; to question truths, creatively explore, and consider multiple perspectives; and to then transform their ideas into meaningful action.

We take pride in fostering a community that feels like a village - we celebrate each child's and each family's uniqueness, while teachers, staff, and parents collectively nurture the genius in all of our children. 

We are excitedly preparing our facilities to invite and delight the children. Our light-filled classrooms, stimulating library, creative multi-purpose spaces will be fresh and gleaming; our garden and playground will offer our children many opportunities to breathe, play and be joyful with each other. 

See the notes below about first days of school and follow us on social media to get engaged with our community online, and to see summer reading and enrichment activity ideas. 

If you have questions between now and the fall feel free to contact us:

For academics, Mrs. Gail Jenkins - [email protected] 

For operations, Mrs. Cherita Moore-Gause - cmooregause@shiningstarspcs.org

We are looking forward to meeting each of you in late August.

Warm regards, 

R. Rodriguez-Garcia,


Executive Director & Head of School
