About Starfall: Starfall's founder Stephen Schutz never forgot his childhood struggle to read. As an adult, he was naturally motivated to create a resource to help children like himself. began in 2002 as a free public service and was a pioneer of phonics-based online learning. Parents and teachers fell in love with Starfall as they discovered that children of all ability levels excelled on their own with minimal adult guidance. Over the years Starfall’s offerings have grown in the number of songs, books, and mathematics activities extending to third grade. In 2015, the Polis-Schutz family donated their full interest in Starfall to the Starfall Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
