At Rainbow Academy we believe a child is never too young to learn. Our program offers a seamless educational experience from infancy through the elementary years. Our childcare experience is designed to promote each child’s own individual social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. Our mission is to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate learning environment, which fosters a child’s natural desire to explore, discover, create and become a lifelong learner.
Philosophy and Goals/Overview of Services
Our philosophy is to prepare our students not only for the upcoming years in school they have ahead of them, but to start preparing them for their future adult life so they can be productive and active, viable adults. We do this through center created play which promotes learning and through age appropriate curriculum. Motor skills (large and small), sensory, reading, imagination, independence, health and safety, creativity, self-worth and respect.
