Rainbow is divided into 2 groups. 
The Sharks:
The 2 and 3 year old group.  While they are Sharks, the children spend their day working on developing healthy social skills, language acquisition, large and small motor development, and potty training.  They go outside 2-3 times during the day all year round, weather permitting.

The Whalephins:
The group upstairs is the preschool.  We use The Creative Curriculum for Preschool which focuses on helping children learn the fundamentals they need for school (learning in a group, social skills, waiting, taking turns, math, science, language, pre-writing and writing) during all of the activities throughout the day.  We feel that learning is most successful when incorporated into every part of the day.  The Whalephins also go outside 2-3 times a day, weather permitting.

The daily schedule for our preschool group has the more structured part of the curriculum in the morning (circle time and project time).  After lunch, the children play outside then come together for a group story time.  Then they have a rest time and go back outside in the afternoon.
