The Starfall Website is a program service of Starfall Education Foundation, a publicly supported nonprofit organization, 501(c)(3). The website opened in September of 2002 as a free public service and social
enterprise supported by the Polis-Schutz family. On July 1, 2015, the Polis-Schutz family donated
their full interest in Starfall to the
Starfall Education Foundation.
Starfall has been teaching children to read with phonics for well over a decade.
Our systematic approach, in conjunction with audiovisual interactivity, is perfect for preschool,
kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special education, homeschool, and English language development
(ELD, ELL, ESL). Starfall is an educational alternative to other entertainment choices for children.
Our low-cost membership program expands the free content you already enjoy to include
delightfully animated songs, mathematics, and reading activities spanning pre-k to 2nd grade.
Your child will have fun learning essential reading and math skills through exploration! Your membership
fee ensures that we can continue to provide Classic Starfall free of charge and offer low-cost, high-quality,
educational resources to classrooms.
In May of 2009, we released the Starfall Kindergarten English and Language Arts Curriculum and in June 2013 the
Starfall Pre-K Curriculum.
Our methodology motivates children in an atmosphere of imagination and play. The teacher-guided and
child-directed nature of our curriculum products ensures English language learners and struggling readers
learn alongside their peers. Please visit The Starfall Store
for our curriculum products and other low-cost phonics journals and books paralleling this website.
