Rainbow Preschool Curriculum planning

At Rainbow Preschool, we believe in making every moment count, which is why we offer a variety of exciting experiences every single day. Our stimulating program is designed to keep your little ones engaged and inspired while nurturing their skills, knowledge, attitudes, and unique personalities.

Our Curriculum:

🤸 Planned Group Activities: From creative crafts to exciting games, our planned group activities are sure to spark joy and laughter while fostering social skills and teamwork.

👩‍👧 Individual Learning Opportunities: We believe in the power of collaboration between parents and teachers! That’s why we value your contribution in developing planned individual learning opportunities tailored to your child’s unique interests and needs.
