Family Child Care


Infants and toddlers enjoy all the comforts of a home in an educational, safe, licensed setting and so much more! Rainbow’s Family Child Care (FCC) Educators are entrusted with a parent’s most precious treasure, namely their infant or toddler. Rainbow’s Educators are very sensitive to how difficult and challenging it is for mothers and fathers to adjust to having someone else care for their infant or young toddler while they are at work.

Every Family Child Care Educator’s home is licensed and inspected by MA Early Education and Care. Every educator is certified, trained in CPR and takes refresher courses annually.

Educators assist infants with simple yet important skills, including sitting up, rolling over, crawling, walking, and talking. As they become a toddler, they are well-prepared to join the toddler activities that are also provided, such as singing songs, counting, learning the alphabet, reading and listening to stories, and art projects. Every Educator uses Teaching Strategies Gold Curriculum, an authentic, ongoing, observation-based assessment system aligned with the developmental stages of young children starting at birth.

Rainbow Educators increase children’s emotional and cognitive readiness to make certain that each child is well-prepared for preschool, kindergarten, elementary school, and beyond.
