Rainbow Child Development’s Preschool educates 64 preschool children in a diverse, nurturing environment that is language based, infused with meaning, purpose and exploration. Preschool teachers provide an active learning environment that encourages children to explore, discover, create, problem solve, socialize and express their feelings while building self-esteem and achieving age appropriate milestones. Teachers facilitate specific activities that support skill building in areas critical to prepare young children to successfully transition to kindergarten.
The Preschool Speech and Language Development program equips children with vital language skills in order to become proficient communicators. Preschool children’s readiness skills are assessed and measured quarterly via Teaching Strategies Gold Assessment program, an optimal assessment tool aligned with the MA EEC Preschool Learning Standards and Guidelines and MA Curriculum Frameworks. Rainbow takes pride in working to ensure that children have the strategies they need to achieve and thrive.
Summer Science – Each weekly lesson stimulated children’s senses, sparked their imagination and increased their confidence. During a field trip to Worcester Ecotarium, children explored nature trails, saw live animals and enjoyed a planetarium show. Summer Science included on-site visits from Mass Audubon, Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, Mystic Aquarium, Animal Adventures Petting Zoo, a Magic Show and Catch the Science Bug. Grant funding for the Preschool Summer Science was awarded by Webster Five Savings Bank.
