BIG NEWS! On August 6th, Stars Academy is officially rebranding as The Melbourne Preschool. We can't wait to show you what we have in store for the upcoming school year!

Stars Academy Childcare is . . . A childcare center that focuses on the development and happiness of every child. We believe that every child is as unique as the strategies we utilize to challenge their skills and promote cognitive, physical, and emotional growth. We aim to provide an environment where self-directed learning is encouraged, guided, and fostered. With this objective, our children are being prepared to be life-long learners. In today's fast-paced and ever-evolving world, those who develop a love for learning at an early age will have the greatest advantage of all: Nothing is out of reach for someone who loves to constantly learn and improve themself. Come meet with Alex and Rebecca Arsic at the center to learn more about how we can guide your children for a lifetime of success.
