Starbright School - Campbell5

Our daughter has been going to Starbright for 3 years. We've been always happy with the way our daughter was being taken care off by the staff. First of all, this school provided my daughter solid academic background that is very advanced. Kids have at least several interesting projects every day. Parents can pick up the projects at the end of the day and see the progress of their children. Second, it's been like a second home to our daughter -I knew that she will never go outside without having her sunscreen applied or in the winter time her teachers always made sure she had her hat and scarf on to keep her warm. This school has its own kitchen and its own chef. Children get hot meals/snacks here -I never had to worry preparing lunch/snack for the last 3 years. Children here have daily naps in their pajamas and have a second pair of indoor shoes -kids feel like at home. This school offers numerous activities, such as dance, theater, science and math classes, choir, language classes, soccer and few others. This is very convenient because parents don't need to pick up their kids and drive them to activities -everything is done during school time. Thanks for being there!
I have nothing but great things to say about this school! The Campbell campus has bright, clean rooms with plenty of books and toys. Recently the school added a brand new state of the art theater where students participate in outstanding dance and choir shows, and theater plays. The food includes daily hot soup, healthy snacks and organic vegetables and fruit. Also, children have a daily nap in their pajamas and in small beds instead of sleeping on the floor in the sleeping bags with their shoes on. The teachers care about every student and always help them with their projects, personal care, etc. My daughter is very sensitive and shy, but teachers are able to make her feel comfortable, relaxed, and loved. This school has an outstanding academic program, but learning is introduced in fun and interesting ways. My daughter loves doing art projects, singing songs at their music class, playing soccer, dancing and performing on stage at the theater. I would like to thank the school owners Alla and Igor, as well as the teachers for teaching my daughter confidence, social and communication skills, and for preparing her very well for future academic success!
This school is too crowded and the children are packed together like sardines. As a consequence, our child gets a lot of colds and ear infections which made her lose a lot of study time. There are a lot of programs but you have to pay extra for them. The quality of the English language is taught with a Russian accent. Majority of children are Russian and are very smart and dressed well, disciplined and obedient. Ventilation is not adequate to move air around school. Need more open windows. Overall, a good school but need to trim down class size.
Our daughter has been going to Starbright since she was 3 (she is 6 now) and we love the school and it's staff. Every effort imaginable is given by the owners and the teachers to make this preschool a great environment for the kids. All classrooms are clean, brightly colored, and they've got so many toys, books and posters - the kindergarten class even has computers with math and spelling learning games! The teachers are warm, attentive, and very qualified. Any time you come by Starbright, you see happy, smiling children - our daughter looked forward to going to Starbright every morning, and couldn't wait to get there - how often can you say that about a school? Now she is also enrolled in some of their fantastic enrichment classes and is taking math, science and dance. Thank you Starbright for everything that you do for us and our children!
