About Us

The Rainbow Garden provides an excellent learning and loving environment for young children.

 

We welcome you to be a part of our community preschool family. We hope your involvement in our program will enrich you, your family and our community.

 

We are a Christian Preschool Program. We were first established as a ministry of Community Presbyterian Church in September 1994, as a Mom's Morning Out Program. In September 1995 the program grew to include a 2, 3 and 4 year-old preschool program. In July 1998 The Rainbow Garden was established as an independent non-profit Christian organization.

 

Our experienced teachers will nurture your child with Christian principles that provide a solid foundation and prepare the young child for his/her future academic school years. Our program admits children of any race, creed, color, national or ethnic origin and does not discriminate from all the rights, privileges, activities and programs available to all the children of The Rainbow Garden.

Our Goals for our children are to provide:

A Christian based program that fosters the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ.

Opportunities with other children in a setting conducive to the development of wholesome social relationships.

Appropriate learning experiences that contribute to the growth and development of the child.

Moral guidance and practical instruction of Bible truths.

Preparation for the challenges of the next academic level.

Our mission is to serve the community by providing a Christian preschool. We use Biblical values to create a loving and supportive environment for the child and the family.

Curriculum

Our curriculum provides quality preparation from one age group to the next and progression to Kindergarten.

 

Interactive learning comes natural to young children. The Rainbow Garden has designed a well balanced curriculum that helps children grow in all areas of development.

Social

Traditional values are reinforced supporting successful students, families and communities.

Spiritual

Bible lessons teach kindness, cooperation, respect for others, confidence and honesty.

Intellectual

Planned activities, enriched environment and skilled teachers help many children transition to their first classroom learning experience.

Physical

A focus on strengthening the body and mind promotes healthy children.

Emotional

Character is built to form a solid foundation.

Today's kindergarten experience is more rigorous, with high expectations for academic preparedness, self-discipline, and social skills. Also school accountability is now a priority, and the academic bar has been raised. The Rainbow Garden is serious about our primary goal ­-- to prepare children for the challenges of the next academic level.

 

Our curriculum develops a strong foundation for reading, writing, science, math skills and includes art, music, and Spanish. Parents of our graduates report that their children were truly prepared for kindergarten in both private and public school settings.

Bible

Christian principles that build and instill a strong foundation.

 

Teachers present in class a Bible story, a Bible verse, and a character development lesson. Christian education is interwoven throughout the preschool program. Our Christian based program and staff help develop the understanding and knowledge of God, Jesus and Biblical principles.

Program Classes

All students registering for a class must be the same age by September 1, as the class in which they register. Students enrolled in the three year or four year class must be completely toilet trained.

 

Several class options are offered to provide opportunities for families to select the preschool class that is best for their child and family.
