A note from the Director
To see your child grow and learn is the best feeling in the world! It is also a bit scary to know what the best way to help their learning process is. As you have seen in your child since birth, their quest to learn and do things which is awe inspiring. They are constantly discovering the world around them. If you think about it, they have learned so much in just 2 to 5 years! That is why your number one priority is finding the best preschool that will encourage your little one's growth and development. I think of my 35 years of my teaching career, I have seen many children grow and learn. When I think about how I have help them start their educational careers, it is my contribution to God and the world. To give them encouragement and confidence is a real blessing to my staff and I. How great to think that the world will be a much better place because of the lives of the children we have been privileged to guide.

" Where God's Little Promises
Grow and Learn"
Your child is the promise of God that the world continues. Our Rainbow Bright Staff wants your child to discover their God-given talents and abiities, balanced with loving direction as the recipe for educational success. Our prayer for all of our families is that we work together to help their little ones succeed in this learning process. There is no better feeling in the world than to see the happiness in their eyes and their excitement, too, when they have completed a task successfully! It empowers them to strive for their next discovery.
Grow and Learn!
Rainbow Bright has been in operation since August 1989 as a form of community outreach by the First Mennonite Church to provide quality child care in the community. The church approached Rebecca Rios and Helen Toevs from Paso Robles Chrisitan School Child Development Center to start the process of licensing the center. Initially, we were licensed for 20 children, but in 2003 a generous donation from a benefactor, an addition was built and doubled the capacity to 40 children.
