Working together as partners
Partnering with you is of utmost importance to all of us at Rainbow Station. After all, we know you want the best for your child. And so do we. We are honored with the trust you have placed in us to be an integral part of your child’s life, and that trust is something we do not take lightly.
Rainbow Station, though it’s commitment to quality early childhood education, strives to provide parents with the “peace of mind” needed to approach their workday. When you make the strategic decision to become a part of our Rainbow Station family, you will enjoy the unique and special relationship that grows – our Mission Statement, “Teachers and Nurses Partner with Parents to Promote the Success of Each Child”, is one we take very seriously. We enjoy the awesome responsibility and trust that comes with your enrollment decision and are honored to be a part of your family’s life!
Rainbow Station is positioned to be your partner throughout your child’s first 13 years of life through our Nursery School, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Private Kindergarten, and Village school age recreation program. And when your child is experiencing those under the weather moments, our Get Well Place supplements our efforts to offer you the best, full service childcare, though our ability to continue uninterrupted care during childhood illness
Communication is key
Direct, honest communication, coupled with respect, is always encouraged. Parents are expected to communicate directly with the appropriate staff members and always follow proper chain of command.
In order to keep parents informed about their child’s day, all children, infant through pre-kindergarten, receive a written report of their daily activities. In addition, the day’s lesson plans, activities, and other items of interest are posted on the parent bulletin board located in each child’s classroom.
You are encouraged to call and/or visit the Rainbow Station campus as often as necessary to inquire about your child’s progress and adjustment.
A newsletter, menu, and calendar of events is published monthly to keep each family informed of upcoming school events, classroom field trips, etc. These documents may be received electronically or from your child’s classroom.
Scheduled reviews of your child’s development occur each October and May. Following these reviews, a parent/teacher conference is held. Additional conferences may be scheduled throughout the year at your or your child’s teacher’s discretion. We encourage open and continued communication about your child and his/her progress.
