A Special Note to Parents

After 36 years of providing care for young children, I would like to thank you all for making Little Stars one of the best experiences of my lifetime.  I thank you for your patronage and for personally giving me the joy of caring for your generations of children.

 Please note that Little Stars Three on Burke Ave, was sold in June 2023 and that Little Stars School on Edson Ave, was sold in December 2023.  I no longer have any affiliation with those locations and wish the new owners the best of luck in their new endeavor.

I, Christine DeGennaro continue to own and operate  Little Stars Too on 1083 Allerton Avenue. We welcome you as always and wish for many more productive school years together.
