Enrollment Information

Rainbow Rising Beacon Park is currently waitlisted for certain grades. Please contact your Site Director and ask how to start today!

Rainbow Rising Beacon Park recognizes the growing physical, intellectual, and social competence of the school-age child. Our focus is to achieve social and academic growth while expanding their knowledge of the world. Rainbow Rising teachers work collaboratively with the school site to develop a fun curriculum that reinforces our mission statement.

We group our children by age and encourage their growing ability to make choices, work with others, and assume responsibility. We offer child-initiated play both indoors and outside. Our activities consist of art, science, music, math, and more.

Our program offers enriching learning opportunities in a fun environment for school-age children. This includes before and after-school care, care for school holidays and closings, and exciting summer day camp programs.

All enrollment is done online via a link on your school's page. Please contact your Site Director if you have any questions. If you are interested in enrolling for the current school year please email beaconpark@rainbowrising.org

Jared Baar

-Director-

My name is Jared Baar and I would like to introduce myself as your Director. I started at Rainbow Rising in 2006 at Westpark Elementary. Throughout my tenure, I have worked at every level of the program. I started as a Teacher’s Aide, where my main responsibility consisted of running the outside games with children in the afternoon. As a Teacher, I facilitated the homework club for our High Riser program and planned their daily curriculum. My philosophy is that children should enjoy their time at Rainbow, but their safety is always our first priority. Our program provides a variety of options and offers enriching, relaxing, fun-oriented activities. I encourage each child to use his/her potential while encouraging growth in a multitude of ways. It is our purpose to help children develop to the best of their ability and to provide an atmosphere in which they can learn to be a supportive member of a team.

I am a mother of two beautiful young children. During my free time, I love to cook and be at the beach. My favorite thing to do is spend time with friends and family.
