The School Year Comes To An End…

Dear Parents:

It has been a pleasure to be your children’s teachers and to see these little ones grow and develop and gain confidence in themselves and their abilities.  Thank you for allowing us to experience these precious moments with your children.

One of the stated goals of the Rainbow Factory is to nurture each child’s self-reliance and independence.  Because we care about children’s feelings, the staff avoids long, teary good-byes on our last preschool day.  We know there is a time to let go and to send forth the birds from the nests so they may soar to new heights.  We will send the children forth in happiness so they will not feel tied to preschool and will be able to form new ties with future teachers.  This is as it should be.  We feel privileged to have shared in the growth and development of your child.  For those children returning in the fall, we whisper  “See you in September”.

May your summer be wonderfully fun and relaxing, and may you and your families continue to grow in love together.


The Rainbow Factory Staff

It’s Picnic Time!

You’re invited to

Rainbow Factory‘s Family Potluck Picnic,

May 15th at 11am, on our last day of school!


The family picnic to mark the end of the preschool year will be Wednesday, May 15th  at 11am on the preschool patio.  If it is raining, the picnic will be indoors.  Each family is asked to bring one dish to share with everyone.  The food may consist of a main dish (sandwiches, chicken, pizza, pasta are examples) or a side dish of your choice (salad, dessert are examples).  Please no peanuts or peanut butter sandwiches. The Rainbow Factory staff will be happy to give you ideas!  Please bring your own water, drinks, plates, cups, utensils, etc.  Lawn chairs and blankets will be needed for sitting on the grass. All Rainbow Factory families and children are welcome! 


MORNING and FULL DAY children will come at the regular time for Wednesday classes and all children will be dismissed at 11am.  There will be no AFTERNOON classes on Wednesday, May 15th.


Stretch-n-Grow Announement

Stretch-n-Grow’s last day at Rainbow Factory for this school year will be Thursday, May 9th.  We have loved partnering with this wonderful organization to bring outstanding physical fitness to our Rainbow Factory kiddos! Thank you Coach Erin,  Coach Tierny, and Coach Luis!  If your child participates  in a parent pay class, you will be billed for half the amount in May. Feel free to contact Coach Erin with any questions or concerns at or 402-541-2885.
