We specialize in all your Preschooler Care needs

Our busy, interactive preschool classrooms provide a fun and awesome hands-on environment for three and four-year-olds. Classrooms include several areas for children’s individual and small-group learning and play – Art, Block, House, Music, Manipulatives, Math & Science, and Literacy — to stimulate curiosity and foster discovery of the world around them. Extensive use of descriptive language builds English vocabulary and creative writing; however, numerous words, phrases, songs and stories in foreign language (typically Spanish or French) is generally, informally taught by attending staff as well.

    • The High Scope Curricular Approach is supported by a distinctive classroom environment, flowing daily routine, and degreed/credentialed teaching team. This progressive, cognitively-oriented (non-rote) preschool curriculum provides an active learning experience around 58 key development indicators that link child inquiry, planning, work time, and recall. The daily routine includes intervals of quiet and active play along with large and fine-motor development, story-telling, meals, and outdoor play. Socialization and displays of kindness are encouraged throughout the day. Children create and assemble written and pictorial portfolios of their work and are able to see their own progress and growth over time.
    • Classroom areas contain appropriate furnishings with shelves and labeled baskets containing art materials, books, puzzles, blocks, trucks, dolls, table-toys, games, musical instruments, tools, prop boxes, and real materials from home and nature. Each classroom has an attached bathroom with child-sized toilets and hand-washing sinks that is easily monitored by attending staff. Floors and rugs are cleaned every day, and toys and furnishings are washed and inspected on a strict schedule to ensure both cleanliness and continued suitability for use.
    • The Early Childhood Teaching Team Specialists are specially trained for their role and are chosen for their abilities to engage children directly in a gentle, friendly manner. We seek a diverse staff with energetic ideas and a cooperative nature, as these are the attributes we want to foster in our young students. Teaching team to preschooler ratios are maintained at 1:6 or 1:7 depending on the ages and numbers of the children in the classroom. Teachers and teacher assistants write child anecdotes daily as part of a formal child observation assessment we share with parents twice each year, which also addresses the child’s language and literacy advancement.

  • Activities and progress are documented for every child, through anecdotal 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. Classrooms are also monitored during the day via closed-circuit cameras and intercoms to provide extra staff support as needed.
  • Our AdventureScapes Playground contains a big, wonderful playscape, specially-designed to encourage interaction and socialization, as well as large-motor skill 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. Children go outside to play every day unless the weather is inclement.

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.
