Rising Star

Welcome to our Rising Star Page! Every month, Rainbow Rising recognizes an employee across all centers for embodying Rainbow Rising's mission to provide the best quality care to all children. These teachers have demonstrated what being a positive role model means in the lives of children through care and positive interactions.
