“At this center, I found something that was very important for me as a parent– a caring and loving staff. My elder daughter has attended Star of the Sea ELC, my other daughter is a current student, and I am planning on sending my two youngest childrent here next year as well.”

– Svetlana Messerly

“Kai has attended Star of the Sea ELC for two years. Star of the Sea has offered an excellent learning platform and growth opportunity for our son. His teachers’ caring guidance has enabled our child to learn social and moral values and has offered him a superior educational curriculum. We thank Star of the Sea for educating our son and providing him with the tools and foundation necessary for his continued success.”

“Warm and embracing faculty that makes every child feel special and welcome.”

Margaret Rufo

“Teachers at Star of the Sea ELC go out of their way to pay individual attention to your child, and as a parent I feel so lucky my children are part of the school. Star of the Sea creates an extremely nurturing, kind environment that makes our children feel so welcome. Mahalo, Star of the Sea for giving so much to our children!”

Rosie O’Donnell

“As a first-time Mom I’ve read so many books…always trying to do the best and right parenting for my son. Enrolling my son in the Toddler class at Star of the Sea has put my mind at ease. My son’s teacher confirms many of the things we’re doing at home and she has given me some great ideas too.”

Anne Shigeta-Koch

“Star of the Sea Early Learning Center was the only program that I considered to surpass in all aspects of what I wanted for my daughter after carefully examining all of the programs that accepted children under the age of three-a good education, balanced with the Montessori and Catholic foundations. My daughter has flourished through her experiences and teachings that I have given her both at home and by placing her in this school environment. I am glad that I made the decision to send her here! She is a very happy little girl and that makes me very happy and content as her mother.”

Gabby’s mom, Cathy Byrne

“Star of the Sea’s Early Learning Center has provided such a positive first school experience for our children, Amanda and Jonah. Both children thrived in the school’s clean, safe and caring environment. We felt it was important for our children to start off their academic journey with a ‘love to learn’ outlook, and that’s exactly what the Montessori approach provided.”

David and Joni Higashiguchi

“Star of the Sea ELC has consistently exceeded all of our expectations. Our daughter Zoe has grown and learned so much, thanks to your wonderful structure and loving and skilled staff. The teachers are extremely patient and offer many activities that help each student explore and learn in a nurturing environment. It’s been so great to be a part of the Star of the Sea ELC family!”
