It's Your Time to Shine!

Home away from home, Shining Stars WeeCare's serves as the North Star for students as they travel through their early years. With a background in the Life Sciences, a longtime career in the Medical Field, and having reared both my daughters as a Stay-at-Home Mom, I brought Shining Stars to my community because I recognized the importance for early education and experienced first-hand the lack of High Quality Care available for working families. With bright decor and ambience, carefully curated curriculum, and a Multi-language Program, we welcome your family to join our Mission which will take you out of this world!

I love and care for children as if they were my own. I aim at meeting each of my students needs and challenging them as they learn and grow. With a bright, encouraging, caring environment where they feel safe and supported, children can travel to infinity and beyond. I care for, teach, guide, and cook for my students as if they were my own so parents and families can rest assured their little stars will be happy, safe, and in good hands.


Ms. Marina - Director

A strong believer in the well known quote by Napoleon Hill, "Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve," Marina serves as a radiant role model for her students and families. Marina has a B.S. in Biology and is a Certified Medical Technologist. Supporting in surgeries at the Beverly Hills Vein Center for over 10 years, Marina has finally been able to bring her love and passion for children back to her community through Shining Stars. A Stay-at-Home Mom where she had to stay at home to make sure her daughters received the quality of care and education they deserved, Marina understands the importance of Early Childhood Education and knows the lack of quality childcare well herself. For this reason Marina aims at providing High Quality Child Care and Early Childhood Education to the little stars of her community within her home. Crafty in nature and a fan of the arts, Marina takes her artistic abilities to the culinary world and into the kitchen; as she did for her daughters and family, Marina cooks fresh Traditional Armenian and American food for her students each and every day. Ms. Marina speaks Armenian, Russian, and English.

The Home

My home has been dedicated to my daycare. Spacious, bright, and organized, I aim at providing my stars the space they need tp shine bright. With the exception of my bedroom, the entire house is safe and available to my students. Large windows around the house provide for plenty of natural light to shine in on my class. The Kid's Constellation Courtyard, located in the front yard, serves as the Mission Control for our outer-space exploration and adventure to distant galaxies of learning and fun!
