Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Rainbow Connection is dedicated to providing a warm and inviting atmosphere that allows children to develop at their own pace. We believe that children need to have a positive self-image. We foster that image, along with their developmental growth in the areas of intellectual, social, physical, and emotional skills, through a variety of group activities, individual play, and quiet periods. Our program makes use of many play and learning materials that help the children gain confidence in their abilities to do and make things.
Children will play and learn through hands on experiences in art, literature, music, nutrition, motor skills, dramatic play, science, math manipulatives and environment.

At Rainbow Connection, we are parent friendly. Our goal is to maintain an open line of communication and to develop a trusting relationship with the families enrolled in our program. Our staff is trained in the field of child development and is supportive to the healthy development of all children. We welcome parents visits anytime, please come in and visit as often as you like, converse with our staff and participate in your child's learning environment. We seriously consider all parent suggestions and comments.

Rainbow Connection serves all children and families and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, marital status or disabilities.
Our goal is to provide a full time, year round, quality childcare program for children, aged - infant through pre-school to Pre-Kindergarten
