Since 1989, we have been the leading provider of early childhood education services in the Woodvale Community.  We have been at the forefront of adopting the highest standards in early childhood education based on the most current research available, being among the first fully Accredited centres in the Province.

We are bringing our decades of experience and dedication to excellence in child care to our newest location in Argyll!

Our Mission

We strive to be the best in our field, hiring talented and dedicating individuals who share our passion. Our primary responsibility is to provide a safe, healthy, nurturing and responsive environment for your child. We are committed to supporting each child's developmental needs by cherishing individual differences, promoting their self-esteem and helping them learn to play and work cooperatively. 

Your family and our early learning program both play a role and share a common interest in promoting your child's development and well-being. Accordingly, we focus on fostering clear communication and team work between the home and day care program in order to ensure that your child realizes his or her full potential. 

At Rainbow, you will find our environment to be inclusive and respectful of the dignity of each family and its culture, customs, and beliefs. We also work closely with the families of children with special abilities in order to ensure their child receives a level of funding and support commensurate with the family and child's needs. 

With these goals in mind we have already picked members of our long term team in Millwoods to help us ensure our new Argyll location operates to our exacting standards.

Great daycare! I feel like Rainbow staff are part of the family. I get weekly updates of what my three year old will be learning about through out the week. They have an amazing summer program that keeps the kids entertained and learning everyday. Staff are knowledgeable, patient and fun! My son has been with Rainbow since he was 12 months. I originally choose Rainbow because they open at 0630 and it worked for my career, I am so glad now that I made this choice.”
