Our Purpose

Starfish Scholars prides itself on offering the absolute best experience for its students. Led by strong directors and a team of education professionals, the school focuses on safety, security, academics and fun!


Starfish Scholars' schools in Florida are accredited by the Accredited Professional Preschool Learning Environment (APPLE), which is a national early learning program accreditation under the Florida Association of Childcare Managers (FACCM). With over 1,000 accredited schools, the APPLE motto is ‘Solid to the Core’! In Florida, APPLE is accepted into the State of Florida’s Gold Seal of Quality program.


Starfish Scholars in Florida are also Gold Seal of Quality Certified by the State of Florida. The Florida Legislature established the Gold Seal Quality Care program to acknowledge child care facilities  that are accredited by recognized agencies and whose standards reflect quality in the level of care and supervision provided to children.

Starfish Scholars' schools in Georgia are licensed through the Georgia Department of Early Education and accredited through the Quality Rated program. Quality Rated is Georgia's system to determine, improve and communicate the quality of programs that provide child care in Georgia. Quality Rated gives parents and families greater confidence in their child care choice because independent, credentialed experts in early education have assessed whether programs follow best practices such as employing qualified and well-trained teachers, providing a safe, healthy and caring environment, implementing individualized instruction, offering a curriculum that prepares children for kindergarten, focuses on both active learning and social-emotional development, engaging families and providing a low teacher-student ratio.
