Welcome to STAR NET
The Mission of STAR NET
Illinois STAR NET provides a variety of opportunities for personal and professional growth for those who touch the lives of young children, ages birth through eight, with an emphasis on children with special needs. STAR NET supports family-centered, researched and effective practices in early childhood education and care.
This website is established in order to provide accessible online resources to anyone who may need it. If there are resources or events you would like us to post, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for visiting.
We do, and we review them. Along with book reviews our Resource Specialists select and write a review of an app every month. Just go to the "News" tab and drop down to "App Reviews", or click here.
