Rainbow Preschool Parent and Tot

 Ages 18 months–3 ½ years old

Our popular Parent & Tot Programs are designed to enhance group interactions and bonding. During Parent and Tot classes, parents/adults are encouraged to participate in and help encourage social development within the class. Each week the class explores a new theme in which our activities are developed around. Make-up classes will not be offered and please no infants or siblings unless they qualify for the class and are registered.

All of our preschool classes encourage speech and language, improve motor skills, sensory awareness, and cognitive development.

Our learning environment

Rainbow Preschool takes place in a bright, colorful and loving environment and is taught by trained and experienced staff. Our classrooms feature: newer furniture and toys, ipads, approximately 2200 square feet of learning/growing space, fenced playground adjacent to our rooms, unisex restrooms within the classroom, and separate entry for easy drop off and pick up of preschoolers.

Our structure of daily activities are carefully planned to encourage independence, self-confidence and group cooperation through large group, small group, and one-on-one participation in a variety of experiences. These activities will include instruction and skills in writing, fine and gross motor, letter and number recognition, language development, and social/emotional skills.

I love Rainbow Preschool! You all are doing an amazing job, all the teachers are wonderful. My daughter gets so sad sometimes thinking that she’ll be leaving Rainbow Preschool once she graduated from the 4-5 year old room. You did an awesome job with our daughter, she was very shy but now she is confident and expressive. Thank you for helping her grow and get her ready for kindergarten.

Your child will participate in many fun-filled learning activities in a warm, safe, loving atmosphere. Sessions begin in September and end in late May/early June. To enter the 4–5 year old preschool program, the child must be 4 years old by September 1. To enter the 3–4 year old preschool program, the child must be 3 by September 1.

Our program for 3–4 year olds will consist of organized play stressing sharing and social interaction. Children will participate in science, sensory, outdoor play, music and movement, arts and crafts, beginning writing/math, and fine and gross motor skill activities. We offer classes that meet two or three times a week for 2 ½ hours each day and run a 1:7 child to teacher ratio.

The program for 4–5 year olds will focus on pre-kindergarten readiness skills in an informal setting. This will include concepts such as letter and number recognition, group participation, writing skills, science and math activities, and pre-reading skills. We offer classes that meet two, three, or five times a week for 3 hours each day and run a 1:8 child to teacher ratio.

Staff

All of our instructors either hold college degrees with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education and/or preschool instructional experience.

Rainbow Preschool requires a criminal history check by the Michigan State Police and a child abuse and neglect clearance performed by the Michigan Department of Human Services on all our employees. Your child’s safety is top priority to our staff!

Philosophy

The City of Troy Recreation Department’s Rainbow program is designed to promote self-help skills, independence, social interactions, and creative expression experiences through play.

Our goal is to enhance your child’s growth and development by a variety of activities that incorporate instruction, skills in writing, fine and gross motor, language development, and social/emotional skills.

As a parent, I feel comfortable expressing any concerns about my child to the teachers. The teachers always come up with different ways for a child to learn. I have nothing but great things to say about this preschool, I would definitely recommend Rainbow Preschool to anyone!
