We focus on helping children learn responsibility in conjunction with life science. Each day children are responsible for ensuring their class pet and plant have been feed and cared for. The in turn learn how taking care of these items by providing them with their needs helps keep them growing. This activity helps children feel important and needed inside their classroom environment.
Rising Star is a proud participant in the Silver State Quality Rating Improvement System.

WHAT IS QRIS?
A QRIS is a systemic approach to assess, improve, and communicate the level of quality in early and school-age care and education programs. Similar to rating systems for restaurants and hotels, QRIS award quality ratings to early and school-age care and education programs that meet a set of defined program standards. By participating in their State’s QRIS, early and school-age care providers embark on a path of continuous quality improvement.
Every classroom has a natural air purifying system that helps eliminate germs in the air.
Using a diffuser in our classrooms is a great way to keep cold, flu, and other illnesses at bay that works on three levels. First, many essential oils are powerfully anti-microbial and when introduced into the air in vapor form, the organic compounds within the oils come into direct contact with airborne pathogens before they can invade your body. Second, essential oils can also be used to boost the immune system. Last but not least,our diffusers also double as humidifiers which will help to keep airways moist and healthy so children are less susceptible to any microbes that do make it into their body.
Rising Star isn't just another school, we are a family committed to working hard for every student! We happily participate in community events, and events that help our students! Here is our staff at the Make-A- Wish Run where we helped sponsor one of our precious students to make his wish come true! We truly believe that we are helping build a community to serve a community!
We want every family to feel like they are leaving their children in the hands of someone more like family than just a caregiver. We value the relationships we build with each family, the connection, and participation from our families!

At Rising Star Preschool & Childcare we focus not only on Educational Growth but also on Personal Growth. We believe we are building a Community to serve a Community. Through our daily lessons we focus on building positive traits. We are Bucket Fillers; we focus on filling our buckets with positive feelings and actions towards others.
