Rainbow Cultural Garden is an early child-development program which, through careful progressive exposure to multiple languages, cultures, representational systems and aesthetics, seeks to inspire and capture the miraculous, creative, learning lives of children.

Our core values


We believe developing a rich internal world is key to our children’s optimal fulfillment in life. As such, we seek to emphasize and prolong the wondrous state of joy and curiosity that naturally exists in all children.


By exposing children to loving role models from a diversity of cultures, we seek to foster a deep sense of solidarity with all of humanity.


We believe it’s important that our children learn “how” to think rather than “what” to think, that they build self-esteem and self-reliance and that they develop problem solving skills that will serve them no matter what challenges they might face.


"We started Rainbow because we wanted our children to learn different languages; we wanted them to be children of the world and learn different cultures. However, there is the other side also - their development in joyfulness, expression and interest in the world. I think I end up focusing on that and thinking about her language acquisition as secondary."
