If you are looking for information on the Rainbow Station franchise business opportunity, Rainbow Station franchises or Rainbow Station franchising, then you have come to the right place.
You may have visited all of the "child care centers", the "Child Development Centers", and you know that there has to be something better. You are searching for a quality early education franchise and you are not alone. Millions of parents are, too. Despite the fact that the number of facilities has more than doubled since 1977, the concept of quality early education is still in its infancy.
Only six percent of preschools, child care centers, etc., nationwide meet the accreditation standards of the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs (an accreditation sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children), the primary accreditation body for our school. That means only six percent offer low child-teacher ratios, teach children how to learn, follow a curriculum that emphasizes individual interests and talents, and offer an environment where children are happy, relaxed and involved with play.
And none of them offer Rainbow Station's unique selling propositions:
Rainbow Station is the brainchild of Gail Johnson, a pediatric Registered Nurse who once taught nursing at the Medical College of Virginia. She opened her first Rainbow Station in 1989. Within five months, she had 100 children. By the end of 1990, her staff had grown from 12 to 32. And by 1999, she had six locations. Her success sparked articles in such publications as New York Times, Time Magazine, Family Style, Enterprise Virginia, Entrepreneur Magazine, Nursing Matters, U.S. Japan Business News, Nations Bank Magazine Richmond Times Dispatch and many others.
After just five years in business, it became apparent just how many families were eager to embrace the Rainbow Station concept. After opening three schools in its first four years, the business was named to the list of 1995 "Rising 25" Fastest Growing Companies in the Metropolitan Richmond Area. In 1996, Gail was named the Small Business Administration, "Small Business Person of the Year" for the Greater Richmond area and in 1997, she became the Virginia "Small Business Person of the Year. These honors all validated the uniqueness of Rainbow Station's Preschool, Afterschool Recreation, and Mildly-Ill Care Programs.
