The Shooting Stars Program

Shooting Stars is a private self-supporting preschool located at 152 US Route One in Scarborough since October 2005.

The Shooting Stars Program is dedicated to offering unique programming for preschool aged children of all abilities. Our objective is to provide an individually appropriate curriculum that will assist in  meeting the academic, social, physical and emotional needs for you and your child.  We believe that all children of all abilities can learn together and will work with families to create an environment that capitalizes on each child’s personal strengths and unique qualities. The Shooting Stars Program is a place where every child can reach for the stars.

The Shooting Stars program consists of three classrooms.  All three, utilize a multi-age approach where curriculum focuses on the individual. Shooting Stars is unique, where it offers classrooms for both children with and without identified special educational needs. Children from all three classrooms participate in mainstreamed activities and have the opportunity to learn and play together. By doing so, all children are able to benefit from the expertise of visiting therapists who specialize in speech/language, physical and occupational development. With such a wide range of developmental abilities, our teachers are required to have a high level of training and qualifications. All lead teachers have either a Masters or Bachelor’s degree in education and all supporting staff is licensed with the Maine Department of Education. This includes background checks and finger printing through the Department of Education, more on our teachers...

Parent Testimonial

"I cannot recommend Shooting Stars highly enough! The teachers and staff are all superb-patient, encouraging, supportive, straightforward, kind and knowledgeable. Our son had a terrific year, honing critical skills for social settings and broadening his academic readiness through a thoughtful and thorough curriculum that still allowed a lot of time for free play. I truly appreciated the individualized attention that all children and parents received. I am so glad to have found Shooting Stars - you will be too!"  Emily Read
