All early childhood programs in New York that provide education and child care services for more than three children, more than three hours per day, must be licensed by the NYS Office of Children and Families (OCFS). Literally hundreds of details are checked before a program can be licensed. Considering Rainbow Chimes’ level of programmatic quality, this specific information fills a four-inch thick binder.

Each of Rainbow Chimes’ programs and Centers has a valid license that is renewed on a timely basis in accordance with OCFS regulations. We have never had the need to request a fair hearing, and no Rainbow Chimes site license has been subject to suspension or revocation. This information can be verified by calling OCFS at: 1-800-732-5207.
