SERVING IUSD SINCE 1989
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.
Rainbow Rising was established in 1989 for the sole purpose of meeting the needs of the school age children in Irvine, California. We are currently located at 13 elementary schools in Irvine. We provide before and after school care as well as all day care 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.
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.
Join Rainbow Rising - ALS Walk
We are proud to announce that Rainbow Rising will be participating in this year's Walk to Defeat ALS. In honor of Dave Ronningen, Rainbow Rising participates in an annual fundraiser for The ALS Association Orange County Chapter. Dave is the late father of our Assistant Director at RR Meadow Park, Hailee Ronningen. We are proud and honored to support Hailee and her Family. We would love for our Rainbow Rising families to come out and join us for the walk. Please see the flyer for more information.
Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
