Center Philosophy

The philosophy of Over the Rainbow Nursery is based on the belief in the basic goodness of all people - all children. It is our belief that by working together, parents and teachers can provide a stable ground from which each child can grow. Our program revolves around our genuine love for children. The staff respects the unique personality of each child participating in the program. Our focus is on the individual child in a social world.

At Over the Rainbow we recognize the continuing need for wholesome, educational and socially responsible early childhood programs. We believe that learning is a lifelong process and our role, as educators, is to nurture each child's natural curiosity and propensity to learn. By implementing early childhood principles, we strive to lay the foundation for all positive future learning and growth. Our goal is to make your child's first educational experience an adventure that lasts a lifetime.

We work in a group setting, recognizing individual needs and preferences, developing strengths, encouraging self-confidence and enhancing the process of socialization. Through all stages of our program we are guided by our belief that each child has the right to expect the security, nurturing, acceptance and encouragement necessary to blossom into a happy, self-fulfilled individual. We are dedicated to providing such a setting for the children in our care.
