Our Mission

The Rainbow Centers provide a quality, safe and fun program for children. We use positive communication, activities, and patience to create responsible citizens for the future.

Our History

Rainbow Rising was established in 1989 for the sole purpose of meeting the needs of school-age children in Irvine, California. We are currently located at 15 elementary schools in Irvine. We provide before and after-school care as well as all daycare when school is not in session. Our all-day programs include fall intersessions, winter and spring recess, summer day camp, teacher in-service days, minimum days, modified days, and parent conference days.

Our Programs

We have a developmentally based program with homework and enrichment time, recreational play, crafts, arts, music, dance, science, and math. We provide opportunities for socialization, friendships, and free choice play, as we believe these are essential building blocks for the whole child’s growth and development.

You've got questions? We've got answers!

We understand new families have a lot of questions, so we created an informational packet in order to give you an idea of what to expect at Rainbow Rising. We will cover our daily schedule, curriculum, snack, camps, and our current tuition model. Please note that for site-specific information, you should contact your school directly. We look forward to welcoming your family to ours in the near future! Click here for more information!
