Rainbow Chimes Child Care

The Most Dependable & Affordable
Infant Care In Huntington New York

We specialize in all your Infant Care needs

The nurturing philosophy in our infant nurseries is driven by our Executive Director and Registered Nurse Katie Roche, who started this program in 1980 when she could not find quality infant day care for her own baby. Your infant’s day will be filled with many happy experiences and enjoyable encounters in one of our specialized nurseries. These are warm and welcoming places where babies are encouraged to explore their environment in a gently structured way.


    • Our staff is comprised of nurturing early childhood development professionals, who create an atmosphere of safety and trust so that children can satisfy their curiosity about the world around them in ways that stimulate their senses and promote their physical and cognitive development. We maintain a 2:8 ratio of credentialed teachers and assistant teachers to babies, and often this ratio is an even better 3:8 due to our use of dedicated float staff instead of outside substitutes.
    • Attentive care is personalized and documented for each baby, taking into account unique schedules and nutritional needs, which are tracked and uploaded to parents desktops or mobile devices in real-time throughout the day. We also capture various happy experiences of the babies’ day, via photographs and messages, to simultaneously share with parents. Additionally, support staff monitor nurseries during the day via closed-circuit cameras and intercoms so that additional assistance can be provided if several babies need extra attention, feeding or diaper changing all at once.
    • Our adaptation of the High Scope Curriculum ensures that key experience indicators are used as a basis for planning and developing activities that are appropriate to the growing child. These activities provide experiences that allow your baby to explore, in an active learning environment, how they begin to relate to others and what they find out about themselves, their relationship with others, how they communicate and their own physical development. Other key experiences deal with the ways in which infants and toddlers begin to understand their world through exploration of their environment— how things are related to each other; how some things share characteristics; how to begin to make some order and sense of their surroundings, spatially and temporally.


  • The nursery environment provides areas where babies can freely crawl, socialize, and play with age-appropriate toys. Young babies are held when being bottle-fed, and older babies are seated in special supportive chairs for meals and table-play. Napping alcoves are protectively watched over by a caregiver at all times. Floors and rugs are cleaned every day, and used toys are washed twice a day. Diapering areas are sanitized using an approved viricidal cleaner, and each nursery is aired out every day.
  • Our BabyScapes Playroom has ultra-cushioned floors and a variety of equipment to foster large motor development. An enclosed grassy courtyard adjacent to the nurseries provides an outdoor play area dedicated to infants only, with specialized equipment geared to their tender age. Infants also go outside in special buggies when weather permits.


We are sure you will agree that your baby will have a joyful, creative, and fun experience at Rainbow Chimes. Call 631-427-6300 today to arrange a tour, as openings are typically quite limited.


“The learning environment was important, but it was really more the overall environment of the cleanliness, the people there, how they’re all very friendly and approachable, and that the kids were really having a good time.” – Grace Ingram

What people are saying about us:


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.
