A lot, it turns out. Especially when a company has spent decades building trust, creating value, and forging meaningful relationships in the community it serves. And yet, our name was chosen back in 1989, when Rainbow Station was nothing more than a seed of potential. A possibility. Now, many years and many schools later, Rainbow Station’s strong foundation has supported the growth and expansion of our Richmond, Virginia company into an international leadership preschool, with facilities located across the U.S. and overseas.
As we’ve expanded, countless schools in the early childhood education industry have begun using the name “Rainbow.” Our mission, our values and our curriculum have set us apart from these other schools for decades, but the name Rainbow Station is not the differentiator it once was. As attached as we are to our name, it was time to change. In January 2018, Rainbow Station began changing its name to LeafSpring School.
In a nod to the train imagery that was the foundation for our brand, a leaf spring helps stabilize a train’s engine as it moves along the tracks. It is our mission to ensure that our schools continue to be that same stabilizing force in the life of every child that walks through our doors. Our new LeafSpring School logo was designed to embody the enthusiasm, energy, and creativity that makes our schools unique.
At LeafSpring School, we recognize the importance of giving our students roots, while at the same time providing them with the springboard they need to reach their own individual potential in the world. Thank you, as always, for trusting us with your most precious gifts. We are so excited to see what grows from here.
