Learning with a Smile

Every day your child arrives at Rainbow Station, he or she can expect to have a best-ever day. And then the next day, they’ll have one that is even better! Each new day is filled with challenge, discovery, and the smiling faces of people who are passionate about early education and the rewards that come from making a difference in the life of a child—your child. Each and every day, our mission truly comes alive within the walls of our schools: Teachers and Nurses Partner with Parents to Promote the Success of Each Child.

Each day, we help your child achieve his or her potential by fulfilling the needs of your whole child—heart, head, and body—with age-appropriate curriculum and recreational activities that balance the importance of repetition with opportunities to explore new ideas. We help your child identify his or her unique skills, gifts, and talents and become a leader in the area that best suits him or her. And only Rainbow Station has the distinction as the nation’s first “Leadership Preschool,” focused on development beyond academics in skill areas such as initiative and responsibility to help your child become a successful 21st century citizen. At Rainbow Station, your child will make friends, feel safe and secure, grow independently and through shared experiences, and discover that learning is fun.

We believe parent involvement is integral to the success of our school—and the success of your child. Our teachers and nurses partner with parents to foster the growth and success of EACH child. Every day, you will bring your child to a safe and stimulating home-like environment with meaningful interactions, time to explore and learn, and the benefits of community and continuity of care—the same classroom, the same teachers, the same students. The peace of mind is priceless.

Our Focus: Your Individual Child

Rainbow Station’s programs are specifically designed to nurture and engage your child throughout his or her development—from Nursery School to Preschool to Private Kindergarten, and then to The Village, our unique schoolage recreational program for children up to age 14. Each of our programs is customized for the needs of children in that age group, and features Rainbow Station’s proprietary PLAYWORKS© curriculum blending teacher-directed with child-initiated activities so that your child is stimulated, challenged, and having fun.

Wouldn’t you feel better if you knew exactly what your child was going to learn as well as how he or she was going to learn? Of course, you would! That’s the promise of PLAYWORKS.

Fun and effective, PLAYWORKS establishes standards of learning for each age and developmentally specific class. Our teachers work with your child at his or her own pace to achieve these learning goals through thematic-based teaching and the self-discovery of play, and to measure progress through a variety of developmental assessments. Today, educators and parents recognize the value of learning through play, and are beginning to place greater emphasis on this critical concept for your child’s growth and development. At Rainbow Station, we have been doing it for decades.

Only Rainbow Station is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of your whole child and set him or her on a path to success in our classroom—and beyond. Here, we’ll empower your child to discover a lifelong love of learning, we’ll encourage his or her individual gifts and talents and nurture the confidence to pursue them, and we’ll help your child develop the skills to “learn early, live well, and LEAD.”

We look forward to helping your child achieve his or her full potential at Rainbow Station.
