A nationally accredited, developmentally appropriate program designed for infants six weeks old to children two years of age.
The Nursery School program at Rainbow Station recognizes that placing your very young child in the care of someone else is a difficult and emotional decision. Our teachers spend each day opening new worlds of discovery for your child in a safe, nurturing and creative environment.
Research indicates the importance of learning experiences during your child's first years of life. Exposure to language, music, and sensory stimulation are considered critically important to the development of young children. The teachers and staff at Rainbow Station implement a thematic based curriculum designed to meet the needs of your child. Our rich curriculum is strengthened through the relationship you child develops with his or her primary care teacher.
