From Our Website
Building Rainbows provides an excellent environment for nurturing children's growth and development. Our atmosphere is positive, joyful, safe and filled with fun. Our interactions with the children, and one another, are positive and respectful - we place emphasis on assisting in the development of healthy communication skills. We challenge our children to be "problem solvers"; to ask questions and look for more than one solution. We lovingly guide children as they seek solutions to the "struggles" they encounter in the process of learning, playing and growing.
Both our Tomball and Cypress locations provide before and after school care to many local elementary schools. Before school, the children have a chance to eat breakfast and play a variety of games, puzzles and arts & crafts activities. After school, the children receive a snack, have time to work on their homework and then have a chance to play outdoors or in a variety of indoor centers. Some days we have organized activities and on other days they will have "free time" to decide what they would like to do.
At Building Rainbows Day School, we work closely with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to ensure all protocols and standards of care are not just followed, but exceeded. HHS is an excellent resource for parents to learn more about licensed child care facilities, such as Building Rainbows Day School. The below information is an excerpt from their site that we wish to provide to our parents as upfront information. A child care program can have a tremendous influence on your child.
Once in our Pre-Kindergarten classrooms, our teachers take the hands-on learning approach to a new level. Our Scope and Sequence is specially designed around what children need to know in order to be successful, creative thinkers and doers in an elementary classroom setting. Our Pre-K classrooms follow a Scope and Sequence based curriculum and a "centers" based approach to learning. We also use Handwriting Without Tears and other resources from Scholastic to prepare our children for a seamless and successful transition to Kindergarten.
Our Cypress location accepts infants that are 12 months of age and walking. Our Tomball location accepts infants starting at 6 weeks of age. Tomball has three separate infant rooms so the age range in each classroom is often less than six months. The infant program has developmentally appropriate toys, learning materials and climbing materials in order to build gross and fine motor skills. Our teachers spend time each day with the children on various play "experiences" that are based on the children's current level of development.
Our teachers recognize these needs and prepare lesson plans that are active, hands-on and relevant to the children's interests. Our Pre-School classes follow a Scope and Sequence based curriculum and a centers based approach to learning. Teachers use developmental checklists and age level training to develop age appropriate activities and experiences within the weekly center wide thematic topic. More complex levels of play emerge as children try to create connections between what they already know and what they want to know.
Our summer camp program is designed for children who have already completed Kindergarten through 12 years of age. The Summer camp program is a combination of offsite and on-site field trips, arts & crafts, games, sports and other exciting adventures for the children. Each day your child will dive into an exciting world of art and crafts, music and cooking activities. They will also take fun and educational trips one to two times a week to places that include: Museums, laser-tag, bowling, skating, rock-climbing, movies, nearby parks and splash pads, and so much more.
Toddlerhood is an exciting and challenging time for parents and caregivers. The newly learned skill of walking soon leads to running; "baby speak" becomes more understandable; and all of a sudden a complex personality has taken form. We know that loving, teaching, and caring for toddlers requires consistency and understanding. Our teachers begin to set the stage for love of learning by bridging both new and familiar concepts to young children. Children begin turn-taking (precursor to sharing), sitting for story and music times, finding out about basic shapes and spatial awareness through fun, engaging activities designed to stimulate a young child's naturally curious nature.
