Preschool & Kindergarten

Shining Stars is a state licensed Christian Preschool-Kindergarten open Monday – Friday in the Sacramento area 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.


Mission Statement

To provide a safe, nurturing and creative environment where children begin to lay a foundation of life-long learning and discovery while experiencing God's love.

Program Philosophy

We believe each child is a unique and precious individual, created in the image of God, who will learn and develop at his/her own pace and in his/her own style. We believe the family is the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing and the most important teacher of values and morality. Our role is to support and assist the family in this endeavor. Our aim is to enable them to attain Christian maturity through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

We desire to provide a secure and orderly environment where children will find love, acceptance and encouragement to maximize their potential.

We recognize that children develop and grow at different rates. We will offer developmentally appropriate activities for each child to grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically through hands-on exploration, problem solving and personal interaction. Children will be encouraged to express themselves in language, art, music, dramatic play and exploratory learning. Our program will be a balance of self and teacher directed experiences, individual and group activities, and open and closed-ended curriculum. All of our instruction and activities will be Biblically sound, age appropriate, culturally relevant, and consistent with the Creekside Christian Church Constitution’s article of faith.

Shining Stars Preschool/Kindergarten is a ministry of Creekside Christian Church.
