Enrollment Information

Rainbow Rising Northwood offers educational learning opportunities through both inside and outside play and recognizes that learning occurs during playful experiences. At Northwood we help our children build on their cognitive competence and problem solving skills, positive communication skills, and highlight the importance of working well with others.

Our goal is to provide a wide variety of experiences, such as daily developmentally appropriate activities, physical education, academic homework programs, and recreational play in order to promote social, physical, and emotional growth and development. Our teachers work closely with parents and school administration to ensure a positive learning experience through positive reinforcement, patience and understanding. Rainbow also offers all day care during winter, spring, and summer breaks

Amanda Shusted - Director in Training

Hello, my name is Amanda Shusted and I am so excited to be the Director at Northwood! I obtained my degree at California State University of Fullerton, with a BS in Child Adolescent Studies. My passion for working with children started at Rainbow Rising in 2013. I then got to experience working at various centers and got the privilege to connect with many different families. My goal at Rainbow Rising is to create lifelong relationships with families and to keep a safe, creative, and fun environment.
