Your Child Is in Great Hands
I would like to take this opportunity to offer my assistance with you and your child. Finding a quality preschool program can be a challenging endeavor and I am committed to helping you match the needs of your child to the best possible program available. Although the Rainbow Preschool is not the only preschool option in the Sagamore Beach area, our teachers, our students, and our families believe we are the best. Best in quality, best with matching quality educators with exceptional, creative young children. I encourage every parent to visit a variety of programs, observe the teaching staff, watch interactions, and talk to other parents. As a high quality, intimate, hands-on program, our families become our most valuable asset. Parent references are welcome and encouraged. Just ask. We welcome you and your child's visit to gain a personal and intimate experience of our daily curriculum and to provide a basis of comparison with other opportunities that you have. On behalf of the entire Rainbow Preschool Community we strive to make a difference to you and your child. I look forward to your family becoming part of ours at Rainbow Preschool.
Health & Safety
In case of a natural disaster or situation (chemical spills, bomb threats, etc.) necessitating
evacuation of The Rainbow Preschool, the children will follow the emergency plan for
evacuation, as stated in our Health Care Policy. If necessary, parents will be notified to
pick up their children ASAP or within one hour. At any time it is necessary to leave the
the staff will take with them the attendance book which contains all emergency
contact numbers for the children.
The Rainbow Preschool's contingency plan is to walk the children up to the Swift
Memorial Methodist Church Activity center located at 82 Old Plymouth Road, where the
children and staff will stay until they can go safely back to The Rainbow Preschool as
stated by the authorities (police, fire, etc.) The parents will be notified that the children
are at the activity center. They will be advised to pick them up ASAP.
In case of the loss of power, heat, or water, school will be cancelled and parents will be
notified to come get their children ASAP (within 1 hour). This Plan can be found in the
Parent Handbook and all parents are made aware of the evacuation contingency plan
upon their child's admission to school.
Plan for evacuation of school in an emergency:
Daily attendance records of the children are maintained in the following ways:
each classroom teacher is responsible for taking daily attendance: and parents must sign
their child into school upon arrival as well as sign them out when they pick them up.
Attendance lists kept by the teachers in their enrollment /plan book will include
emergency contact numbers for each child. This will be carried out with the director in
the case of an evacuation.
In the event of an evacuation, the teacher will lead the children out of the school
and away from the property. The plan is to walk the children up to the Swift Memorial
Church Activity Center, where they will stay until it is safe to return to The Rainbow
Preschool as stated by the authorities (fire, police). If it is deemed unsafe to return, the
parents will be notified that the children are at the activity center and they are to pick
them up there ASAP. The director will be the last one out of the building and do a search
of the building to be sure that all children got out of the building safely. Attendance will
be taken once the children are safely away from the school.
In the case of the loss of power or heat, the parents will be notified to come and pick up
their children as soon as possible (recommend within one hour).
Throughout the school year, the staff and the children will practice leaving the building
and go to the parking lot (end closest to the Hoxie School) and taking attendance there.
This will be done and recorded at least every other month. The record of these drills will
be kept by the director in a binder labeled FIRE/EVACUATION DRILLS
