Your Child Shoots For The Stars!
Over 17 Years Of Early Childhood Education Excellence
Preschool & Childcare Center Serving Bradenton, FL
A Loving Environment That Feels Like Home
Teachers know every child on a first-name basis and treat them as though they were one of their own. A close-knit staff who are like family and owners who are regularly onsite transform school into a home away from home.
1-On-1 Attention To Help Your Child Blossom
Classes have low student-to-teacher ratios, so your child benefits from plenty of one-on-one interactions with their teacher. Assistants take care of diaper changes, leaving teachers free to engage with children in direct learning experiences.
All-Encompassing Curriculum Means Kindergarten Success
The Frog Street© curriculum and GOLD® teaching standards give your child the very best educational head start before Kindergarten. Regular assessments measure their cognitive development and ensure your child is on track with their age group.
Keeping clean & staying safe!

Hear What Parents Have To Say...
"This is the best daycare in manatee county"I know my kids are well cared for, pictures throughout the day, homemade meals are provided, the playground is covered and has misters for hot days, and their vpk program is second to none.
"My daughter loves coming to school"Very friendly staff. My daughter loves coming to school. She enjoys all activities and I wouldn't change her from this preschool. Ms. Dessi is awesome!!
"Every teacher is caring and patient"We had our son here for a few years now, this has easily been the best decision for him that we have made. Every teacher is caring and patient, they have fun and teach at the same time, and I'm concerned that regular school will be boring for him. As he'll be in school next year, we'll know that he has been prepared by his time here.
"I feel my kids are safe"Awesome daycare! I feel my kids are safe and loves here and learning so much. Great teachers, great facility. We love it here.
"I breathe easy knowing my child is well taken care of."My child loves her teacher, Miss Jessica, and always has a blast. It's great seeing the progress she is making learning her letters and numbers. The diversity of the staff and students mirrors the diversity of our community. I breath easy knowing my child is well taken care of.
"A Child's Galaxy is such a great school"The teachers are friendly caring and so involved with their students. I could go on and on. My son loves his teacher, Ms. Merelin and lights up when he sees her.
"I highly recommend 'A Child's Galaxy Preschool"This letter is to inform you of the exceptional care my children receive at 'A Child's Galaxy Preschool'. My son started at the school shortly after Kristen Terrell took the school over, so I have personally seen the school's transformation from what it was to what it is today, which is nothing short of awesome. Though my son has moved on to elementary school, he still looks forward to the summer program the school provides. Besides my son, I also have a 5 year old daughter who has been attending the school since she was old enough to attend. She in currently in the VPK program and is looking forward to the 'school ager' programs the school provides, come summer. Over all, I am extremely pleased with the level of care my children receive at the school and would recommend it to anyone and everyone needing child care. All the teacher's are loving, caring, patient and keep parents well informed of what's going on with the kids as well as any school news. Besides that, I appreciate the fact I do not have to pack lunches or snacks; the schools food program is one of, if not the best I've seen. Furthermore, I highly recommend 'A Child's Galaxy Preschool' to any parents looking for a quality, structured daycare for their children. This school is definitely A+!!
