The event, from 10 am to noon, celebrates the completion of the beautiful train station themed 16,000 square foot facility which includes a full-service Get Well Place infirmary, 2 large inside age-specific play areas, three large outside age-specific playgrounds, a dining car where ages 2 and older eat all meals family style and a full chef kitchen.
Accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, Rainbow Station offers a nursery school, a preschool, afterschool recreation as well as The Get Well Place, where parents can leave their mildly ill children in the care of a pediatric nurse when they need to go to work.
Rainbow Station’s vision is to be the Standard of Excellence in early education, school age recreation, and mildly ill care. We want to be the best. We will lead in excellence in early education with our unique curriculum to help our students learn early, live well, and lead!’ says owner Steven Ramos. Debbie Ramos, national award winning educator, adds, “The curriculum blends teacher-directed and child-initiated activities and is based on a standard of learning infused with technology, cooperative learning, critical thinking, and leadership skills which are developmentally appropriate.
The Get Well Place allows parents to limit time missed from work with the comfort of knowing that their ill child is receiving individualized and loving care from a RN. Rainbow Station strives to accommodate and make each child successful, even when faced with illness”, says Emily Knotts, previous St. Vincent Hospital NICU nurse.
The grand opening celebration on February 18th will entertain hundreds of children and their parents with school tours, including meeting the Rainbow Station staff; family activities, including a visit from Edwin the Duck; light refreshments; and a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Rainbow Station is a premier nursery school and preschool with after-school recreation. Their mission is to empower each child to be the best they can be through teaching them to learn early, live well and lead.
