“My son went to Starseeds from the week he turned 2 years old until he was 3.5 years old. A move took us to a new school, and I realize now more than ever how very extraordinary our experience at Starseeds was and how fortunate I was to have that be my son’s first school experience. The small, individualized setting provided the perfect foundation to help him learn to take risks and learn new things in a safe, nurturing environment where he was encouraged to be both a leader and supporter of his fellow classmates. His strengths were celebrated, and his challenges were addressed in an engaging, thoughtful way. I watched my son grow by leaps and bounds. Most of all, he had so much fun!
Starseeds is so much more than a preschool It is also a wonderful community that promotes our children’s education and healthy development — both here at school and also through the teachers’ inspiring work with the non-profit Leela International. It was very fulfilling to be exposed to such a unique program where the same wonderful teachers that benefit my child also share their talent with children in other communities in developing countries.
Kendra and Trisha are great communicators and were very responsive to any questions I had along the way. I completely trust their instincts and teaching philosophy. They are kind, loving, smart, compassionate women. I truly respect them as professionals and value their friendship. We still keep in close touch with many of the families and children that my son made friends with. What a special place!” Laura, Noe Valley
Starseeds is a loving neighborhood school that we have been a part of since 2015. We have sent both our two daughters to Starseeds when they turned 2 and both of them have loved their experiences at the school. We found that the half day schedule combined with the small class size and nurturing teachers made Starseeds the perfect introductory school for our young children. They were introduced to school basics like sitting in circle time, raising their hand to speak, craft time and eating lunch with their friends. We were surprised us weekly with what they learned in school as much thought was put into a hands-on age-appropriate curriculum. The teachers have made our daughters feel safe and loved since the moment they stepped through the doors which is all that a parent can ask for. We are grateful that a school like Starseeds exists in our neighborhood! Ilene, SOMA
“We highly recommend StarSeeds if you are looking for a warm, joyful learning environment for your 2+ y/o child. Our son joined shortly after his 2nd birthday, and absolutely loves everything about StarSeeds – his classmates, teachers, and the fun learning that takes place every day. The founders of the school are the teachers – they are so friendly, creative, and passionate about working with young kids and ensuring their positive growth. In addition to taking daily trips to the park with the kids and engaging them in yoga, dancing, and singing, there are frequent art projects and reading times. There is a great family-school partnership, and many parents come in as visiting experts to share their unique knowledge with the kids. We’ve been so happy to have our son there, and would encourage you to check out the community that’s been built at Starseeds.” Wendy, SOMA
Ava loved going to Starseeds. She made so many wonderful friends there. I was reluctant to start her at a preschool so early, but Ava thrived at Starseeds. She became a much more confident and independent little girl. Every week the kids would enjoy a range of fun & diverse activities and I loved hearing stories of all her experiences whilst at Starseeds. All the educators were so caring and and made sure Ava and the other children were always looked after, felt safe and cared for. I’m so happy we came across Starseeds and I have no hesitation in recommending them for your family. Karla, SOMA
Starseeds is a great year-long toddler/pre-school program that offers a fun and safe learning environment for kids who are just beginning their socialization process. It’s especially appealing if you have a newborn or young one at home and want to give the older kid some time to socialize and play. Our oldest son joined right after he turned 2 when his younger brother arrived, and it gave him a chance to meet new kids and mom a chance to have some quality time with baby. Both our sons absolutely love Starseeds and have learned to make friends on their own at the school. There are typically two teachers to eight students so great ratio. The day typically involves circle time, art, snack time, outdoor play and lunch. We have made some great friends from the school and are excited that we get to send our youngest there now. Cindy, SOMA
