The Shops at the Waterways, 3565 NE 207th St., Aventura
Programs at Baby Stars seem like child's play, but take another glance. On a deeper level, the children are developing eye-hand coordination, motor skills and growing toward being ready to read. In a series of five rooms, children play in a traditional gym or use their senses to explore textures and art. Babies can learn about other cultures and lifestyles with moms or dads in tow.
Themes run throughout the gym and change on a weekly basis. Toddlers graduating from Baby Stars develop confidence for school. Instructors at Baby Stars follow the motto, "In learning to learn to read and write, it's like a building, you need a good foundation." The staff offers children ages 3 months to 3 years the chance to jump-start their education.
