October 17, 2013 // Franchising.com // Piscataway – Rainbow Academy Franchise Company is proud to announce the opening of the new preschool and kindergarten wing at Rainbow Academy of Rutherford, New Jersey, located in the heart of the Meadowlands on Route 17 in The Meadows office complex. Coinciding with the school’s eight year anniversary, the expansion was a much-anticipated change to the state-of-the-art child care and early learning facility in order to meet the needs of its growing fanbase.
"Over the last few years, we have noticed a major shift in the market – and not just in Rutherford," explained Guy Falzarano, Founder, President and CEO of Rainbow Academy Franchise Company. "There was a time that when a second child was born to a family, some mothers would choose to stay at home. That is becoming a less and less viable option for many families. Rainbow Academy strives to be the solution for working parents. Our signature ‘Circle of Care’ philosophy balances the needs of all members of the Rainbow Academy family – including parents and children. In addition to offering extended hours to accommodate longer work days, we have sought avenues that enable parents to stay connected to their children. We understand that parents need peace of mind in order to focus at work. Technological tools like our Tadpoles e-communication app and ParentView® Internet Monitoring allow us to create a virtual bridge between the office and their child’s classroom. Add the appeal of an excellent staff, beautiful facilities, interactive whiteboard technology in the classrooms, and biometric finger scanning entry systems for added security, and Rainbow Academy truly is the ideal answer for families with two working parents. I never get tired of receiving an email from a parent praising their child’s teacher or telling me what a difference Rainbow Academy has made in their family’s life. It’s really no wonder why our Rutherford facility was in need of an expansion – a great school just became greater!"
Students – both current and former, parents and staff gathered together at Rainbow Academy of Rutherford on October 12 to commemorate the facility’s anniversary and cut the ribbon on the new expansion.
"We are thrilled to finally have the space to accommodate all of our families," said Dina Duffy, co-owner and director of the Rainbow Academy in Rutherford. "After 8 years, we have had almost 1,000 families enroll in our center. We are humbled and thankful that so many of our families are so loyal and have stayed with us for multiple years with multiple children. The new expansion will afford us a more private school setting for our extended day pre-k and kindergarten program, while enabling us to still meet the needs of our younger infants and toddlers in our current center."
