In January 2018, Rainbow Station changed its name and rebranded as LeafSpring School. We are still the Rainbow Station you have come to love, we just have a fresh new look that helps differentiate the one-of-a-kind care and education we provide each child.
As educators, our goal is to provide them with the tools to refine their natural gifts and a roadmap to guide them down a productive path. Through this leadership program, we hope to INSPIRE their curiosity. We want to INSPIRE them to be good citizens. We want them to be INSPIRED to reach their fullest potential.
This proprietary leadership curriculum was designed to complement and enhance our play based curriculum, PLAYWORKS. It was developed around six literacies, or areas of study: Social Literacy, Health Literacy, Environmental Literacy, Civic Literacy, Entrepreneurial Literacy, and Financial Literacy.
Realistic applications of the literacies are a vital part of the program. Children’s literature is specially selected for each literacy, as children explore real-world applications within each lesson.
|Literacy||Taught to all classes||Preschool & Younger||Village, Private Kindergarten & Younger|
|Social||I am a friend.||I forgive others.||I openly listen to the ideas of others.|
|Health||I take care of myself.||I make healthy choices.||I choose how I behave.|
|Environmental||I am a helper.||I am kind to the world around me.||I protect and care for the Earth.|
|Civic||I work well with others.||I tell the truth.||I do the right thing even if no one is watching. I love my country.|
|Entrepreneurial||I can wait for what I want.||I can do it.||I take chances to meet a new goal.|
|Financial||I take care of my things.||I give to others.||I set goals for the things I want.|
The language used to help children understand is very simple and will evolve as they mature and grow.
Your LeafSpring School teachers and staff are happy to provide further explanation of how this new program integrates into your child’s day. We are excited to take this journey with you and your child, and we look forward to our continued partnership in raising tomorrow’s leaders.
