Starfish Academy is the Florida Center’s nationally accredited early childhood education program. With locations in Sarasota and North Port, Starfish Academy is uniquely positioned to offer our community’s youngest children a high-quality education and a wide array of onsite speech/language, occupational therapy, and mental health services. Starfish Academy serves children aged six weeks to five years and operates as an inclusion therapy model, where typically developing children and those with delays or disabilities learn together and are challenged to meet their individual potential. The model promotes leadership, empathy, and diversity. Highly trained educators work closely with therapists to implement classroom activities that promote growth and development in language, literacy, cognition, motor skills, and social skills. Expertly trained in child development, our exceptional teachers and staff can identify potential development issues as early as possible.
