Welcome and thank you for visiting Over the Rainbow, Children’s Centre. We are happy that you and your family have chosen our childcare centre. We look forward to having you being a part of “Over the Rainbow Family”.
Over the Rainbow is truly a place where learning and fun become one. We believe that if children are having fun and are actively encouraged and well supervised, learning takes care of itself. Studies have found that children are more likely to retain information learned when they are engaged in an enjoyable and meaningful activity. And that's what Over the Rainbow is all about. Our childcare programs and preschool curriculums integrate a wealth of intriguing and engaging learning activities that stimulate brain development in children.
Our centre is family owned and operated and to uniquely meet the needs of the specific community it serves and the individual children in its care, we offer extended hours. To ensure that young children learn social and pre-academic skills necessary for success in school, Over the Rainbow has a staff of qualified Early Childhood Educators that select and develop programs and curriculums for children from birth through 6 years of age. You can rest assured that your child is mastering important skills at the most appropriate time by being exposed to curricular activities carefully selected by our professional team of creative and caring staff.
Our centre is fully licensed by the Ministry of Community and Social Services. We provide care for children ranging from birth to 6 years. There is a capacity of 107 children divided into four groups.
We have frequent inspections throughout the year by the Ministry of Social Services and the Ministry of Health.
Our centre is in constant contact with two agencies in York Region. Blue Hills Child Care Services provides us with guidance and evaluation on child behaviour and Early Intervention Services who provide help on developmental growth for children.
