The Rainbow Room is definitely a place for children to develop their confidence and independence. Children enjoy daily phonics activities to encourage language awareness, play with a variety of games and toys to develop social and learning skills and have tremendous say in what happens during their day.
We provide a walking program for children attending preschool and kindergarten at St. Vincent and Glenora Elementary Schools as well as Glenora Community League. Bus transportation to and from other schools must be arranged by parents and approved by the program before care can be confirmed.
Out of School Care
We work hard to provide an environment which is both challenging and comfortable for children attending our out of school care program. Children are walked to and from school daily and can relax in our spacious after school program which includes one large common room as well as four smaller rooms to accommodate computer play, reading and homework, block play, and quiet activities. Outdoor and physical play is also an integral part of the program with skating each week during winter months and various outings and activities in warmer weather. Full day care is provided on school breaks and professional development days. Summer programming includes weekly field trips and daily special activities and events.
