Center Overview

After earning her Masters Degree in Education and teaching at International Schools for preschoolers and 2nd/3rd grades, Lauren started Over the Rainbow in 2016. Owning a childcare has been a career dream for Lauren ever since she can remember. The preschool program presents learning concepts through hands-on exploration of the world around us; introducing academic and social concepts within a non-competitive and positive environment. The center focuses on play based, child-centered activities where your child's emotional needs, education, and happiness come first. Life skills (zipping, buttoning, tidying up, and learning to feed themselves), arts & crafts, seasonal/holiday themes, music & movement, drama/storytelling, math concepts/counting, language and vocabulary are some of the concepts they teach.
