Upcoming Trip To Norwalk Aquarium

Following our month of discussions and music about Ocean Commotion, we have a trip planned to the Norwalk Maritime Aquarium. There are lots of ocean species to see including sea stars, penguins and lots of fish. Best of all, the children (and adults) can pet very friendly baby stingrays! We are very excited, it will be a fun learning adventure.

Trip To American Museum of Natural History on Friday February 20th

Following a month of study and projects regarding dinosaurs along with theme related music (T-T-T-T-Rex!), we are planning a trip to the American Museum of Natural History. We’ll be leaving on the morning of February 20th for NY City together with our parents and children. At the museum, we’ll see real skeletons of dinosaurs that are millions of years old. We are sure this will stimulate further interest in learning about dinosaurs and we’ll have fun at the same time. See you all there!

Date Night — October 10th

Come join us! Kids watch movies, enjoy pizza. popcorn and ice cream while Mom and Dad have some quality adult time. The kids have fun together like a sleep over while you paint the town red.

How it works: Leave your children with us, no need to pick them up until 12 midnight. We’ll feed them dinner, make sure they brush their teeth and climb into pajamas. Then they watch a movie appropriate for their age (school aged kids watch a different movie). They go to bed afterwards under the watchful eyes of our staff. Just call us when you are ready to pick up. Could anything be easier?

If you paid someone to care for a child or a dependent so you could work, you may be able to reduce your federal income tax by claiming the Credit for Child and Dependent Care expenses on your tax return. A Rising Star Children’s Center qualifies as a care provider under this tax law.
