The academics are good. Your child will lean. The playground is nice, spacious but near the woods so there is lots of insects. The teachers are certified and the daycare workers are younger with energy. However, if your child is out of the norm in terms of energy and exuberant, this may not be the best choice. They will send a child home if he or she violates their contact policy-any hitting, pinching, scratching, kicking. They expect 4 year olds to show contrition right away which may not be developmentally reasonable. The teachers don't seem able to maintain student misbehavior in-house and defer to the principal. It was even suggested that my child had psychological issues who when tested was found completely normal and even of above average intelligence. The child of average energy, relatively well behaved with a mild disposition is a good match for this school. There are field trips and fun school events. There are healthy meals and snacks. The school is a little old.

My son has been attending Alicia's Bees since he was 3.5 months old. Ms. Alicia and her team (2 other ladies) are extremely attentive with my son who is now 2 years old. She's been in business for more than 20 years.She always advises me and my husband of his progress and things we need to do (i.e start potty training, change nipple size of bottle etc), which we appreciate as first time moms. My son has really blossomed here. I can tell the difference from his progress with other kids his age who are stay at home alone with a care taker. He's very social. He can say ALL his abcs since he was 22 months old and count in both english and spanish up to 20! I appreciate he's learning both english and spanish. Ms. Alicia is very attentive and cooks fresh healthy meals daily, which was extremely important to my husband and I. The kids are happy and well trained. The home care is clean and really looks like a classroom! We love it here and highly recommend.
Rainbow Children’s Center has been an amazing blessing for our family. Taran is a dedicated teacher and nurturer – providing a safe, educational, and engaging environment where children thrive. Our son is autistic, and Taran meticulously went over his history with us to ensure that she would meet (and later exceed) his needs. She has a genuine interest in how he is progressing so that she can reinforce what he is learning in his therapies and preschool. The children’s day is structured –singing, reading, crafting, playing with food, dress-up, Spanish class, etc -- which includes extended periods outside each day. Parents are kept well informed of the daily activities and the weekly goals in a nightly email. I absolutely love getting the pictures and videos that often accompany it. I can genuinely say that we consider Taran a part of our family and can recommend her for children of all ages, genders, and capabilities.
very very good childcare, at an affordable rate.. I don't usually do yelp reviews, but when I got the email, I thought I should, to at least show my appreciation... I'm a single father, and my daughter attended this daycare, for approximately 2 1/2 months, and while it was short term, I can definitely say,that this place was great. It's hard finding somebody/some place, where you can feel comfortable, leaving your child. But I can say, with 100% certainty, this is that place! My daughter looked forwards to being dropped off and would be hesitant to leave!... Anyway, just wanted to share my thoughts, and many thanks, to Taran and The Rainbow Children's Center
Iv known Taran for a very long time. When we first met she was 15. At the time helping A Lot with raising her niece. It was extremely obvious then she had a extremely natural ability with children. I had a child young, I'm now 30 and I remember her being so willing to help or take on care for Zoie. As if it was no trouble at all. Needless to say I was extremely relieved to have her around! Anyone that knows her or has received child care, knows she was given born talent when it comes to working and loving children. I'm extremely happy to say I know her and very proud she has made a career out of loving what she loves! ️Xo ��������. Sincerely,Mary N. Smart
My twin boys spent their baby-toddler stages w/ Rainbow Children's Center. Their educational, emotional, and nutritional needs were always met on a daily basis. My boys are now in preschool, but I believe w/ all my heart RCC was a crucial influence in preparing them for the schooling environment! My grade-school daughter also spent before and after care w/ RCC, and summer break. They are experienced w/ children of all ages and backgrounds, so I can guarantee whatever your child's needs are, they will be met no matter what it takes. I am forever grateful for the care my children received at RCC, and you will be too!!
My son has been attending Rainbow Childrens Center for almost 2 years now and he loves going to see "ms tay tay" everyday. She works with him everyday to with numbers letters and he is even starting to say understandable words :) She is a very dependable provider and I don't know what I would do without her. She has also watch my older two occasionally when space allows and they love her as well. She is a very knowledgable and very loving individual and any kids she watches will fall in love with her and will most definitely be taken care of like they are her own. :) !!!!!
My children have been attending Rainbow Childrens Center for over 2 years. I am extremely pleased with the care my children are provided. The environment is warm and nurturing. There is a balance of play and learning. Your children will not be sitting in front of a TV all day. The meals and snacks are nutritional and plentiful. The educational planning is age appropriate. My oldest son has some developmental delays and his educational needs are very well met. You will be very pleased with the care your children are provided.
My family and I love RCC. I initially worried about not having my son in a daycare "facility" until I realized the RCC homebased center was just what he needed. When he goes to RCC he gets more attention, a better education, and has a tight knit group of little buddies. RCC has a much more organized/orderly environment than the daycare franchises he used to attend. But the most important thing he receives at RCC is LOVE! Love is what the other places never had to offer.
After all the nonsense in the media with the terrible corporate child care experiences I wanted to find an awesome in home daycare. Well, this is it! Taran is one of those unique people who truly have a knack for children. Not only do the kids have a blast, but they also LEARN...learn A LOT! Just step inside and you will see that her home is dedicated to her work and you too will agree. Thank you so much Taran! I will recommend you to everyone.
