RCKindergartenPage1A professional, credentialed, and NYS-approved teaching team provide children with a delightful learning experience every day while collecting anecdotes for each child daily to add to their documentation of development. Teaching team to Kindergartener ratios are maintained between 1:7 and 1:9. Support staff is easily accessed as needed via intercoms and closed-circuit monitors. Activities and progress are documented for every child, through observational notes, day-to-day conversations, in-depth formal parent-staff conferences, and informally via messages and pictures shared with parents via internet uploads to a password-protected account.

The High Scope Plan-Do-Review “Learning by Doing” cycle is included in each day’s daily routine with an emphasis on planning and carrying out plans developed by the children themselves in response to offered choices in subject areas. This progressive work encourages logical thinking and rational choices at every step, in a classroom milieu that encourages kindness, cooperation, and friendship. Teacher-directed small-group activities build on 58 key development indicators that stimulate the cognitive, physical, and emotional skills necessary for life-long success. Daily writing journals and portfolios document representative work and projects mastered throughout the year.

RCKindergartenPageThe Kindergarten classroom is arranged by study area to facilitate cheerful, inquisitive hands-on learning: Literacy, Social Studies, Science, Nature & Math, Art, Building, Music & Movement – with various exhibits to stimulate the inquiry, discovery, and creative expression. A myriad of learning materials are available, including art materials, books & book-making supplies, puzzles, blocks, trucks, dolls, table-toys, games, musical instruments, tools, prop boxes, and real materials from home and nature. Classroom and adjacent bathrooms are cleaned every day.

Our AdventureScapes Playground contains a big, wonderful playscape, specially-designed to encourage interaction and socialization, as well as large-motor development. The AdventureScape boasts a fort, ship, and castle with climbing wall, slides, and bridges. Other playground amenities include a patio and easels for outdoor art, music station, swings, playhouses, sandbox, and cycle-track. In summer, the running and ball field also allows for water-play. So that children never have to wait to “go”, we also feature two outdoor lavatories, which allow teachers to stay in immediate proximity to the children at all times. Children go outside to play every day unless the weather is inclement.

Parents can be absolutely sure that children who attend the Rainbow Chimes Kindergarten program are especially well-equipped to enter first grade and beyond. Enrollment is limited to just one small class group per year, so call today to arrange for a tour: 631-427-6300.

 

“I have seen a big change in my daughter. She’s always been social and outgoing, they’ve been focusing that in a more positive way. She’s learning how to be with other kids and take responsibility for things as much as a three-year-old can.” – Pooja Tandon

I take my kids to Rainbow Chimes because as a working parent it is important for me to feel that my kids are in a safe place, where they can have fun, learn and I do not worry.

I take my kids to Rainbow Chimes because as a working parent it is important for me to feel that my kids are in a safe place, where they can have fun, learn and I do not worry. Both my kids have been going there since they were three months old. They started as infants, and now they’re going to be 13 and 10. As a working mom, especially in the city, both my husband and I are not close by. The fact that we’ve been using it for 13 years must say something. We never have had an issue. I felt comfortable that they would care for my infant, especially my first; it was a very hard thing to do to leave your three-month-old with a daycare center. They put them on a schedule; they kept them clean. I thought it was outstanding. They provided us with detailed reports on what our kids were doing each day so you felt that even though you weren’t there with your children you were able to know how their day went and whether they said a couple of words, or at school age did other things. We love Jay. The kids are picky eaters, and even if they didn’t like the meal, there’s was always a healthy alternative. One of the main reasons why we chose Rainbow Chimes was both my husband and I work in the city and we would leave early and get home late. Rainbow Chimes provided hours starting at six o’clock. If we were running late they worked with us. It helped with the stress of working full-time. Looking at Rainbow Chimes compared to other day care options, we found that the services Rainbow Chimes offered our kid was way above everything else. From the time they were infants, the care that they gave to them, the schedule they provided them, the lunches, the breakfast, the snacks, all we found to be exceptional, nutritional.

Rainbow Chimes is a place that I know my son is safe, he loves it there and the food is great

Compared to the other daycares, it’s not really more expensive for the quality of food, and the structure, cleanness and the safety. One of the things that I loved there is the playground’s very safe. my son never got hurt in there. Jay the cook, he’s amazing. I was there at lunch time, I just want sit down at the place myself. The food always just smells delicious and it looks really good. My son always eats a lot, it’s really nutritious food. It just looked like he really cooks for a restaurant. Before he wasn’t in a daycare that really followed through or anything. It was more of a place that he was just there. At Rainbow Chimes I noticed that his behavior changed. And I noticed that that at Rainbow Chimes it’s more structured. He knows it’s time to play, it’s time to eat, it’s time to study, it’s time to read. He already got that down there and I know that that’s a lot to do with the curriculum that they have in school. I noticed that my son, even though he’s just two and a half, every word he sees he’s spelling it, he’s saying the alphabet, he’s singing the alphabet song. He’s eager to show every time. He sees something, he’s pointing, he’s telling us. He has confidence.Everybody’s just amazing. Everybody knows everybody. The people from maintenance, they know your name, they say good morning to you when they see you in the morning. Even though I’m not there, I really know everything that happened not only because they tell me, they write in the papers. So I know what he ate, what he didn’t eat, how much he ate, what he played, what books they’ve read. And at the end of the day, she always tells me this happened, that happened. They talk to the kids in their level, but it’s not baby talk or anything like that. It’s in a way that they understand what the message is, but it’s still being delivered to a child. My son was a little behind with his speech. They really work with him and I noticed a lot of progress. I recommend Rainbow Chimes because it’s a place where you’re going to leave your kid, your most precious gift, and you’re not going to have to worry about it. You know that he’s safe, he’s happy, he’s playing, and you’re just going to have a peace of mind that your son is being well taken care of.
