Education Hero


Providing educational resources so that seriously ill kids can grow and learn

From unexpected injuries to ongoing treatment for severe illnesses, even a brief hospitalization can cause a child to miss school, impacting their overall mental health and educational development - but Starlight Education can help.

Starlight Education provides support for pediatric patients in multiple ways:

  • Starlight School Supplies: Helps equip hospitalized kids with items such as backpacks, pens, and notebooks, and offers them a sense of security by having the essential supplies needed for school.

  • Interactive Starlight Gowns: Our latest Starlight Hospital Gowns include scannable QR codes that link to educational content and games, each offering a unique learning experience for hospitalized kids.

  • Online STEAM Coaching: Offers children group lessons that encourage curiosity and promote creative solutions to real-world problems focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM).

Every kid deserves the opportunity to learn. While we can’t change a child’s diagnosis or situation, we can provide the tools and resources to help them through their challenges. But we need donors like you to do this important work.
