Private Kindergarten

Click Here for an overview of our Private Kindergarten program.

Our Private Kindergarten Program is designed to offer an alternative educational choice for parents. We take pride in our ability to provide lower student-to-teacher ratios than in the public school systems and provide personalized attention to both children and parents.

Our Private Kindergarten Program offers a comprehensive Educational Curriculum that meets the Common Core and Early Learning Content Standards. Our Curriculum builds an excellent foundation for early academic success and has clearly defined goals that guide learning and instruction. Our schools offer innovative child portfolios that house authentic assessment and developmental screening tools to showcase each child’s progress in our program.

Additionally, we offer individualized instruction and the opportunity for children to grow cognitively and develop crucial social skills in a home-like, nurturing environment. Our Kindergarten Teachers are dedicated to preparing children for their future academic career in elementary school.

Private Kindergarten is offered at the following Rainbow locations:

Private Kindergarten Program Highlights


The principle of Zoo-Phonics® maximizes understanding, memory, utilization, and transference to all areas of the reading, spelling, and writing process in a playful and concrete manner. The Zoo-Phonics® Multisensory Language Arts Program is a kinesthetic, multi-modal approach to learning all aspects of language arts. Zoo-Phonics® is a curriculum-based reading and spelling program which teaches children the fundamentals of the English language.


Ready, Set, GROW! Fit Foundations

The Ready, Set, GROW! Fit Foundations curriculum blends educational concepts promoting health and fitness. Hands-on experiences inspire Healthy Beginnings by providing activities and games designed to support muscle development, coordination, and manipulative skills to help children master basic physical skills. With the ability to utilize our state-of-the-art gymnasiums and playgrounds, our programming is consistent and year-round.

Language Immersion Spanish

Our Language Immersion Spanish curriculum balances fun and learning while offering children opportunities to expand their language development. Through thoughtfully designed activities and a strong literature component, your child will learn a second language as their teachers use a combination of different strategies to make learning memorable and enjoyable.

On Core Mathematics®

On Core Mathematics® is a complete program for transitioning to the Common Core State Standards with interactive, real-world applications that help students deepen their understanding of crucial math concepts, while addressing the Common Core Curriculum and the Standards for Mathematical Practice. This program allows students to not just “do the math,” but also to “understand and explain their math.” On Core Mathematics® helps prepare students for national assessments and develops their procedural, application, and critical thinking skills.

Brigance Screening

Brigance is a screening tool that is used in our Private Kindergarten program. The test is not an IQ test nor is it a full scale educational assessment – it is a norm referenced test that compares each child’s results with the performance of other examinees. Brigance Testing covers a variety of school based curriculum topics through a series of 12 assessments, including language development, science and math proficiencies, and gross motor skills. The screenings provide quick, easy, and accurate view of skills that are critical predictors of school success, including physical development, language, academic/cognitive, self-help, and social-emotional skills—all in just 10–15 minutes per child.

Parent Teacher Communication and Report Cards

You will have the opportunity to have formal parent teacher conferences twice a year with your child’s teacher, with consistent communication between conferences encouraged as well. Your child’s teacher will complete a report card for them twice a year. They will complete mid-terms using a norm referenced screening tool in between report cards, document your child’s results, and send them home with you to continue communication of your child’s progress.
