We’ve proudly served Bedford, Goffstown, Hooksett, Manchester, Merrimack, New Boston and the nearby areas for over 20 years.
A Supportive Environment That Grows With Your Child
We support your child’s unique needs at every step of their developmental journey from infancy through pre-kindergarten.
We have 6 age-appropriate classrooms for our 6 programs. Our outdoor playground allows children to play, exercise and develop gross motor skills. Our indoor play area keeps them active rain or shine.
We adhere to all child care licensing regulations set by the State of New Hampshire; but also take children’s needs and family input into account. We pride ourselves on open communication with our families and staff. Everyone’s voice matters!
The Many Benefits of RainbowLand
Through independent and group play, children have the opportunity to let their creative sides shine. They have hidden talents, just waiting to come out. We encourage them as they explore, inspire and are inspired by their peers.
Confidence and Self-Esteem
Accomplishing something on your own is a massive confidence and self-esteem builder. Just the simple act of zipping their coat by themselves will have your child smiling from ear to ear.
Cooperation is an essential lifelong skill. Learning to corporate can be agonizing for a child, but it doesn’t have to be. Our one-on-one instruction teaches them how to work together to reach the same goal.
Enthusiasm For Learning
Learning should be fun! So many milestones are reached through play. Your child will grow to love learning from adults and peers.
Developmentally appropriate activities are designed to help your child succeed. We nurture all areas of development: social and emotional, cognitive, language, gross and fine motor skills.
Families Can Work / Study
Have peace of mind knowing your child is happy, safe, learning and cared for everyday. You’ll have more time and energy for work, school, or anything else you need to accomplish.
Bouncing back after a difficult situation is an important life skill. Teachers and peers will help your child work through this process, and develop their own techniques for resilience.
Being around different personalities everyday can be challenging. However, each day brings new opportunities to rise to the challenge and socialize in a way that will help your child make lifelong friendships.
Stay Active and Healthy
It’s good to let loose and be yourself! Being active and playing outside allows your child’s creativity to shine from their hearts. Fresh air helps them stay energized to learn and grow.
