The purpose of the Month of the Young Child is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. This is a time to identify that children’s opportunities are our responsibility, and to recommit ourselves to ensuring each and every child experiences the best possible early environment. Today we know more than ever before about the importance of children’s earliest years in shaping their learning and development. Rainbow Child Care Center is committed to creating a “home away from home” environment for the children and families enrolled at our schools. Our Educational Program is geared to help children meet their developmental milestones by creating a high quality environment and using a hands-on approach to learning. Our goal is to build a culturally diverse environment supporting the educational experience for our children. Our educational atmosphere fosters opportunities to learn from one another as well as learn through developmentally appropriate practices. Early childhood programs at Rainbow Child Care Center produce positive and lasting effects on children. Together as a Nation we can come together to meet the highest standards of quality care.
