Yes. We include the craft material for the projects
each month for the number of children ordered. We ask you to supply the
basic items such as paint, glue, scissors, crayons, and markers. A list
of any additional items needed, is provided in your program. Generally,
these include things such as snack items, paper rolls, and play props.
How much cutting is involved?
There is cutting involved with our programs.
We believe the practice of using scissors is important for children!
Cutting is a fine motor skill that requires time and practice to develop.
When designing the programs we have been careful to ensure the cutting
that the children will be doing is appropriate and without difficulty. However, there are some situations that you will need to
assist the children.

teacher packs are needed, they can be purchased for $10.00.
Does the program repeat itself every year?
No! The Star-Brite Learning program is based on a
three-year rotation. We understand the need to continue to keep our

around the 9th of the month), we usually will ship your program within 24
hours from your order. Once your program has been shipped, it generally

Who wrote and developed the program?
The program has been written by a number of
different educators over the past seven years. All of these individuals
have been teaching in the public school systems for many years. Because of
confidentiality concerns, these names cannot be released. Our current
curriculum developer, has a master degree and seven years experience in
developing preschool curriculum. Our program manager has been involved
with early education for over 20 years. Both individuals are careful
to maintain their education and training in order to provide a
developmentally appropriate curriculum.

educational programs to providers since 1995.
Why don't you include a music tape?
We provide a circle time song/rhyme sheet in your
program each month. This is in addition to the songs and rhymes that are
part of the daily activities. We believe that as a provider, you can
purchase music CD's, or tapes, at a cost more competitive than us. It is
important to have a variety of different music for the children to interact
with and listen to.
