“Thank you for your brilliant service, Saige is very happy to get done every morning to see all her friends and teacher :-).”



“I just wanted to say a big Thank You to you and your team. Cayde was a shy little boy when he started in 2021 and now is confident, outspoken and independent and so willing to learn new things.

He was really lucky to have such awesome teachers. Today he walked into his new class with so much confidence, and I believe that without Starlight that would not have been the case.

Keep up the good work and all of the best to everyone at Starlight. May you continue to grow from strength to strength.”

“Thank you so much for having Aidan for the 3 years he was at Starlight. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and couldn’t be more thankful to be part of the Starlight family.

It’s been a learning experience, a growing and loving experience. Aidan has matured so much in the care of your staff!

‌Thank you to you and your staff for loving Aidan.”

“We thank the Teachers and staff of Starlight Nursery school for the amazing years and foundation they have given Peyton.

She started with the Lady birds and grew into a beautiful butterfly.

The growth and development Peyton has received at Starlight Nursery school and the journey has been amazing.

She has made many friends along this journey that she will miss.

Each of them along the way has given her an addition into her personal development.

We thank the teachers for always being patient and understanding and nurturing her to be the sweet girl we love and helping to bring her out of her shell.

Thank you again for the amazing support you provided and being so understanding. We as Peyton’s parents truly appreciate everything.”

“We made the decision to switch playschools when our eldest son was 3 and we have no regrets! Now both our kids are happy and thriving. They’re the first to run into school every morning. Thanks Starlight for creating a home away from home for our kids.”

“It has been a wonderful year for us and our son at Starlight Nursery School. Our son was greeted every day with a smile and was always excited about going to school. One thing we really appreciated were all of the wonderful activities the teachers thought of to keep the children learning each and every day. Thank you to all of the teachers for their professionalism, nurturing and dedication and the warm welcoming environment.”
