October 17, 2013 // Franchising.com // Piscataway - Entrepreneur® Magazine – a national publication considered to be the premier resource for everything small business – has named Rainbow Academy™ among its "Leading Edge Franchisors that are Innovating in Big Ways" in the October 2013 issue. The New Jersey-based child care and early childhood education franchise company garnered the attention of Entrepreneur’s editors with the news of the launch of Tadpoles® – a ground-breaking e-communication app designed for parents of enrolled students – in January 2013.
"We may be a smaller sized company, but that doesn’t keep us from making a big difference," explained Guy Falzarano, Founder, President and CEO of Rainbow Academy Franchise Company. "Tadpoles e-communication app is another tool that enables us to keep busy working parents connected to their children by establishing a bridge between parents and the classroom – virtually and in real-time. Tadpoles also integrates beautifully into Rainbow Academy’s signature ‘Circle of Care’ philosophy – which balances the needs of all members of the Rainbow Academy family – including parents and children - in equal measure. Parents need peace of mind in order to focus at work. If their child was having a tough morning at drop off, nothing is better than to watch a video that their child’s teacher sent of their infant belly laughing or receiving a photo of them comfortably sleeping. Parents also receive a daily report detailing their child’s educational accomplishments, nap and feeding schedules or even how potty training has been going. In essence, we’ve taken our extremely popular ParentView® Internet Monitoring concept – which provides parents with a window to their child’s classroom through a secure online connection – and enhanced it further through the use of mobile technology for a more interactive experience between our teachers and parents."
Rainbow Academy is fully committed to remaining on the cutting edge of technology in the classroom. In addition to the Tadpoles e-communication app and ParentView® Internet Monitoring, Rainbow Academy locations are equipped with interactive whiteboard technology and biometric finger scanning entry systems.
"We are incredibly honored to be recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as a Leading Edge Franchisor," said Falzarano. "However, the greatest accolades are those we receive from the families whose lives have been transformed through the relationships that have been created with the staff of Rainbow Academy. Making a difference in the lives of others makes it all worth it. The words of praise and the genuine smiles are truly hard to beat."
Established in 1997 by Guy and Julia Falzarano, the Falzarano family remains deeply involved in the company – from Guy Falzarano at the helm as CEO to their youngest grandchild enrolled in one of the child care facilities. Over the past 16 years, Rainbow Academy, has grown steadily, right along with the children it nurtures, to fifteen New Jersey locations in Clifton, Cranford, Fair Lawn, Flemington, Iselin, Mahwah, Manalapan, Manasquan, North Brunswick, Piscataway, Rutherford, Westwood, Whippany and Woodbridge. The company franchised in 2011 in an effort to expand their distinctive concept throughout the northeast and has over 20 more child care centers under development throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
