The Rainbow School

"Encouragement & Education in a Caring Atmosphere"

• Infants
• Preschool Program
• Before & After School K-2

The Rainbow School believes self-esteem is everything! Our program is designed to foster self-esteem, self-confidence, success, and creativity through a combination of play and structured pre-academics. Music, arts, crafts, drama, science, and mathematical concepts are introduced in a hands-on approach. We feel that when children are confident, secure, and feel good about themselves, they are free to use their own special gifts and talents. Our program is designed to provide children with ample opportunities to balance all aspects of their lives.

Convenient for Your Hectic Schedule

Rainbow School is not simply a place to send your child while you are at work. When they enter our center, your child will be encompassed in a world of learning and development. We offer convenient 2, 3, or 5 day schedules to children twelve months and older.

Our School-Age program “Big Rainbow” provides transportation to several local elementary schools. We serve a nutritious lunch and a.m. and p.m. snacks. We will work with you to make the care we provide a positive experience for you and your child.
