Rainbow Station is uniquely positioned as a solution for providing the excellence in early education our nation's children so desperately need, and so richly deserve. Our "learn early, learn well, and lead" philosophy instills 21st century skills like compassion, responsibility, and teamwork that will impact each child's life in and out of school, and long after they've completed their academic careers. It's a commitment to transforming children's lives, not just their schooling.
The numbers tell the story of demand for quality preschools. With more than 13 million children under age 6 enrolled in child care, according to the U.S. Department of Education, it is one of the fastest-growing industries in the country. Nearly two-thirds of mothers with young children have jobs, and three-quarters of employed mothers work 30 or more hours per week. It is clear that child care is a critical need to support today's families.
Quality child care is in even higher demand. Only 6 percent of child care centers and preschools nationwide meet the accreditation standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children — Rainbow Station is among them. That means only 6 percent of child care centers and preschools nationwide offer low child-teacher ratios, follow a curriculum emphasizing individual interests and talents, teach children how to learn, and offer an environment in which children are happy, relaxed, and involved with play. The basic economics of supply and demand demonstrate Rainbow Station's value as a top-tier provider of the quality care and education lacking in today's national landscape.
The short story: There's high demand for quality early education — and Rainbow Station is among the few proven to deliver it.
Beyond providing excellence in early education, Rainbow Station serves two distinct child-rearing challenges which uniquely position our program as a comprehensive, contemporary family and community solution.
First, Rainbow Station's Get Well Place offers care for mildly ill children so parents can go to work. No other school for early education and school-age recreation offers Rainbow Station's full spectrum of care for the whole child with on-site care by a pediatric nurse.
Second, The Village at Rainbow Station offers stimulating, child-centered recreation for school-age children up to age 14. Students can relax in a protected, age-appropriate recreational environment while their parents finish the work day. Children get the advantages of freedom and choice, combined with the responsibilities that come with both. And parents get the peace of mind that comes with knowing their children are safe at Rainbow Station.
Since its founding in 1989, Rainbow Station has quickly become a respected, positive resource and support system for children, families, and the community. We are committed to advancing early education, school-age recreation, and mildly ill care through positive, meaningful partnerships with children, families, and communities across the nation.
Only Rainbow Station is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of the whole child, blending learning and discovery in a nurturing environment that addresses cognitive, emotional, and physical development as well as health and wellness.
