About Us

Shining Stars is a state licensed Christian Preschool-Kindergarten open Monday – Friday in the city of Elk Grove.

For over 20 years, we have existed to love and minister to preschool families in our community, laying a solid educational foundation for their preschool thru kindergarten children.

Welcome to Shining Stars!

Shining Stars Preschool is a ministry of Creekside Christian Church and is a warm and loving preschool that celebrates the joys of childhood and is committed to a quality educational program that focuses on the whole child.

We believe that God has given families the primary responsibility for raising their children.  It is our privilege to come alongside families through open communication to encourage them, partner with them, and support them in this awesome task.

We would love for you to join our Shining Star Family.  We want every child’s experience to be the very best it can be.

We want it to feel like home!

Childhood... We get only one pass at it,
and yet it dictates the quality of the rest of our lives. What we think, feel, experience, and endure in this earliest phase is the single most important indicator of what the rest of our life is going to be like.”
