Leading Innovation in the Child Care Industry.
A Proven System, Committed to Excellence.
After 14 years in the child care business with a co-partnership model, Rainbow Academy began franchising in 2011. Unique in the child care industry, Rainbow Academy recognizes the needs of working parents AND their children by expanding the definition of "child care" to a "Circle of Care" that encompasses the entire family.
According to the National Association of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies (NACCRRA,) between 2006 and 2010, the percentage of parents reporting child care as a necessity rose from 49% to 57% and 65% of mothers with children under age six are in the workplace.
As these statistics demonstrate, the stresses on families have never been greater. Parents who have previously stayed at home have found it necessary to return to the workplace and many are putting in longer hours. Others have been forced to relocate to find work, or increase their commuting time.
With quality education, family-focused customer service and a genuine sense of care as equally weighted cornerstones of our business model, Rainbow Academy has set itself apart from the competition and created its own niche — the solution for working parents.
Rainbow Academy Beliefs
Founded in 1997 as a family-owned business, we know just how tremendous a step it is to invest in and open your own center. Just as every point of a circle is equidistant from its center, each person whose life is touched by Rainbow Academy is equally important… children, parents, staff, vendors and our franchisees and all of these people make up what we call our "Circle of Care." As a Rainbow Academy franchise owner, you will become part of a family that truly cares, supports and encourages each other helping to ensure your success.
