Rainbow Child Development Center (RCDC ) marked its forty-second year of providing innovative programs and services to 300 children daily. The Center’s academic curriculum and services have fueled children’s talents,
health, confidence, and resilience.
Each of the Center’s three programs, Family Child Care, Preschool and the Extended Learning School Age Program increased its holistic mix of interactive instruction. This resulted in children improving their academic skills and identifying their talents. Curriculum frameworks were formed which provided children new opportunities to further develop their academic competencies, enhance their strengths, reduce their challenges, take on healthy decision-making, and thrive.
The Center’s essential work cannot be alone. Collaboration is no longer a choice for early education and care programs, it is a necessity. Community partnerships are an essential component in order to address the increasingly diverse and often daunting needs of children and families in Worcester.
New and enhanced programs RCDC’s community partners supported:
- Technology is Terrific & Magnificent Minds-Study of Brain Growth
- Gardening and Nutrition
- African Art Education
- Summer Science Program
- Creative Movement
- Fine Art
- Preschool Speech and Language
- Library without Walls
- Social Emotional Therapy
Rainbow Child Development Center’s dedicated staff, board members, community partners, and volunteers are opening doors of opportunity, transforming lives, and reducing families reliance on public assistance.
