At Rainbow Child Development Center, we believe each child is a unique individual who deserves the best. We are committed to providing a quality child care program in a safe, warm, and loving environment where a child’s individuality can flourish.
We provide an enriching environment that encourages a child to learn through active play, thus enhancing his/her overall development. Our program is structured to insure a feeling of security, but is designed to meet individual needs and allow a child to develop at his/her own pace.
With guidance from qualified teachers, a child will learn acceptable social behavior through use of behavior modification and positive reinforcement. He/she will be encouraged to develop a positive sense of self and have many happy experiences.
We believe that parents/guardians are the primary educators of their children. The role of our program is to assist the parent(s) in the care and education of each child. As such we believe in a strong parent/teacher partnership. All parents/guardians are encouraged to:
We believe that a child’s work is his play and his play is his work. Children learn through play so the play at Rainbow CDC is structured to maximize a child’s success and minimize failure, which allows children to meet their needs for acceptance, affection, and approval. Children gain a strong sense of self-esteem and social competence through hands-on experience in a safe and supportive environment that respects individual needs, cultures and preferences.
Our philosophy is based on three basic beliefs:
1. Children need to express themselves through interactions with nurturing adults and peers while being encouraged to be individuals.
2. Children need an environment that responds to their individual needs and development, while maintaining a safe and healthy atmosphere.
3. Children need to be respected, with the opportunity to make choices within planned age and individually appropriate activities.
Overall Program Goals and Objectives
Rainbow CDC’s overall goal is to help each child develop to his/her fullest potential - emotionally, intellectually, physically, creatively and socially. A child will benefit from a program that is concerned with all aspects of his/her development. In addition we strive:
To promote self-esteem through positive interactions between children and teachers, with developmentally appropriate learning experiences and activities, through attention to children’s needs and interests but most of all through attitude, respect and acceptance.
