We specialize in all your Pre-K Care needs

Full-time children who are expected to enter Kindergarten during the next school cycle (older four-year-olds) may be enrolled in our Pre-K class. While Preschool and Pre-K classrooms are set up in a similar manner – Art, Block, House, Music, Manipulatives, Math & Science, and Literacy – children are aided to more deeply process inquiry into discovery, and additional creative expression is encouraged.

    • Child-Planning, as part of the High Scope Curricular Approach becomes more complex to depict a clear and comprehensive blueprint about what the child wants to explore and work on each day or throughout the week. The cycle of patient and creative planning, carrying out the plan during work time, and then recalling what s/he has done promotes the addition of strategic decisions and actions into the thinking, doing, and feeling process. Children may change their plans at any time in order to do something else of interest, and freely interact with others to build on their plan and work in a cooperative setting. As in the preschool setting, this progressive, cognitively-oriented (non-rote) curriculum provides an active learning experience around 58 key development indicators that form the basis of expanding inquiry, knowledge, and capability. Literacy, numbers, and nature/science are explored in greater depth. Incremental gains in physical coordination and stamina, as well as extensive socialization skills, further prepare children for the rigors of Kindergarten. Written and pictorial portfolios provide ample evidence of growth and skills mastered, but just as importantly, reflect the joy children had in the making of their experiences.
    • Classroom areas noted above feature appropriate furnishings and easily accessed 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 and hand-washing sink 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.

  • Older Preschool and Pre-K Teachers are experienced with at least a Bachelor’s degree, and are charged with preparing children for their upcoming Kindergarten experience, both socially and academically. At the same time, these professionals create a playful atmosphere for “learning by happily doing” while collecting anecdotes for each child daily to add to their documentation of development. Teaching team to pre-K ratios are maintained at 1:7, but additional staff may be summoned as needed via closed-circuit cameras and intercoms.
  • 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.
  • 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. 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.
