Rainbow Station is a full-day child care program for children 6 weeks through five years of age. The program is located in our Tom Hargrove and Anita Grover, MD Child Development Center and operates on a year-round basis. Hours are Monday-Friday, from 7:30am-6:00pm. We maintain a staff ratio of at least 1:3 for infants, 1:4 for toddlers and 1:8 for preschoolers.
Rainbow Station provides a safe, nurturing environment, rich with age-appropriate experiences where children can explore their surroundings and develop at their own pace. Children have the opportunity to develop social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and creative skills. Additionally, nutrition-based lessons and activities are included in weekly curriculum.
We offer children spacious indoor and outdoor spaces to explore and learn through play-based curriculum. Additionally, as a benefit of being offered through our Y, Rainbow Station preschoolers are also given the opportunity to experience activities beyond the scope of a traditional childcare program and participate in programs unique to our Y, such as Bouncing Bears gymnastics, music class, and swim lessons.
