Our curriculum is an adaptation of The Creative Curriculum developed by educators Diane T. Dodge and Laura Colker. It is a comprehensive curriculum based on the theories of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).  We also use the Zoo-phonics program as an introduction for our students, as this program is also used in the Kindergarten classroom and in the Park City School District.


The Shining Stars Cooperative School recognizes that some parents want a higher level of involvement in their child's education. During the student's "Special Day", you and your child are there in the classroom from morning teacher prep until clean-up after school. Your child gets special privileges, such as being the line leader, beginning opening and closing circle, helping with the weather report and daily calendar activities during circle time, helping to set out snack, etc. It's a wonderful time to share with your child, and is definitely time well spent!
