Director’s Letter

Joyce RowellI am proud to have completed our 45th year as a model
Early Education and Care Agency. Many new and exciting
chapters of Rainbow’s story have been written. I believe
the Center’s future chapters will continue to be filled
with great achievements while facing ongoing challenges.
These challenges will be met with a disciplined approach,
but will not dampen our entrepreneurial spirit.

During this past year we’ve invested in our staff, board development, enrichment
programs, health and nutrition initiatives, and facilities to strengthen Rainbow’s
presence. The Center is well positioned for future growth and success. We’ve added
new members to Rainbow’s team who have offered fresh perspectives regarding our
channels of communication to parents and the community. We continue to strengthen
our culture through employee engagement and drive continuous improvement of
programs which benefit the populations we serve. We are energized!

Take a look at this past year’s new programs…

  • Nutrition classes for preschool and after school programs
  • Summer camp offerings included fishing, rope climbing, gardening and
    a literacy program in a large air conditioned classroom
  • Parent healthy cooking series led by an award-winning chef
  • Preschool summer music pilot
  • “Exercise Your Mind” reading program developed by the Worcester Bravehearts
  • African dance and drumming
  • Summer science program that included a simulation of an archaeological dig

In September 2017, Rainbow will officially dedicate and open its new outdoor
play space and natural classroom. It will provide children with bright, colorful,
fun outdoor activities that will include multiple climbing components, a tricycle
path, an enhanced garden area, rock block tunnels, music panels, and an obstacle
course. The equipment is eco-friendly, accessible, certified by a playground safety
inspector and is built to last for generations! Thank you for your support of
Rainbow’s mission: “Transforming children’s lives by creating brighter futures.”
