Our Program

sunshine&rainbowsOur Program
Sunshine and Rainbows Early Learning Center (formerly Rainbow Days Preschool) is a quality enrichment program for 2, 3, 4, and 5 year old children. It is comprised of appropriate play and learning experiences that contribute to the religious, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth of each child.

Philosophy of the Sunshine and Rainbows Early Learning Center
Our philosophy is based on the belief that every child is a wonderful gift from God, made in His image and likeness, and they are filled with dignity, goodness, and an incredible potential for discovery, learning, and growth. We believe in providing age appropriate activities for the children that will develop and enhance their natural curiosity and imagination. We also believe parents are the primary teachers of their preschool children and they are entrusting their children to our loving care. Accordingly, the family is an integral part of our program and their participation is an essential element to the success of our program.

The Curriculum
We offer a theme-based curriculum with age appropriate activities for each age group. These activities include appropriate centers and activities to build important foundations for future skills. Our goal is to give each child many experiences to allow their own creativity to be enhanced. Our curriculum includes:

Language and Reading Readiness * Number Exploration * Sensory Activities * Art and Creative Experiences * Science * Music * Health and Safety * Story Time * Spiritual Growth Experiences * Special Events

The Staff
The members of the Sunshine and Rainbows ELC staff have been carefully selected for their educational background, training in early childhood education and their experiences working with young children. They exhibit a great sensitivity to the needs of young children. They attend a minimum of twenty four hours of training each year in all areas of early childhood education.

Partnering Together
We believe the parent is the primary teacher in a young child’s life. Our goal is to involve parents as much as possible. We require parents to attend parent/teacher conferences and volunteer at least twice during the school year. There are many opportunities for mom’s and dad’s to participate in the educational life of their child.

Special Programs
During the year various activities are planned to enhance the preschooler’s education. Some of these include on-site field trips, special visitors, Thanksgiving feasts, a music program, Little Olympics (field day), holiday celebrations, and graduation. Our special music program and Open House take place annually in the early spring. Everyone is invited to attend the program!

Safe Environment
All Sunshine and Rainbows Early Learning Center Staff have completed the Safe Environment program, which includes a criminal background check and a safe environment training program.
