The MISSION of RAINBOW DAY SCHOOL is to help young children, ages 18 months - 5 years of age, foster independence, self-reliance and positive self-esteem.  The primary goal of our early childhood curriculum is to encourage children to become self-motivated and enthusiastic learners. Children will be encouraged to develop positive social skills at an age-appropriate level in a warm and nurturing environment. Appreciation for others and their differences will be encouraged. We will not deny enrollment to children and their families on the basis of race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, national origin, disability, marital status or sexual orientation.
PHILOSOPHY Our program is based on the belief that play is an essential part of a child's pre-school experience. We will encourage the continued growth and meet the developmental needs of each child. Activities will be conducted in a manner that is responsive to individual and group needs . Children will be encouraged to take responsibility, make decisions, and learn through positive interactions with their peers. Our program is designed to help children acquire the skills, knowledge, and behaviors to facilitate their optimum physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. We believe that children need to be provided with a variety of multi-sensory experiences to enable them to retain newly acquired knowledge/skills. Children will be provided with a balance of language, cognitive, social/emotional, fine motor, and gross motor activities.
