Rainbow Academy is now Cadence Academy Preschool! We have been providing quality childcare to Carol Stream, Bartlett, Hanover Park, Bloomingdale, Glendale Heights, and other Western suburbs since 1983. Our preschool center has programs for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age, and our programs focus on your child’s individual needs and on his/her social, emotional, and intellectual development.
In addition to the high-quality childcare and developmentally appropriate curriculum that your child receives in his/her classroom, Cadence also provides exciting and unique features, including a Computer Lab, Bakery, Multi-Purpose Room and Theatre.
We require that all staff become certified in First Aid and CPR, and our teachers meet, and most often exceed, the DCFS teacher qualification requirements.
Rainbow Academy is so much more than daycare. We are proud to provide an exceptional preschool education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home.
THE AFTER ZONE
The After Zone serves children ages 5 to 12. Our program supplements the child’s regular school hours by offering morning care, at which time breakfast is offered, and afternoon care. The 4000 square foot facility is truly a child’s dream after school “hang out” and we even provide transportation between your child’s school and the After Zone. Nine cameras are distributed throughout the facility for safety and security and can be viewed throughout the time that the children are present. The After Zone features:
Library equipped with Mac computers, large oak tables for doing homework, leather sofas and a fireplace
Bakery area designed with child height cabinets and counters where the children have supervised access to snacks and milk or juice
Diva room decorated with a zebra rug, Pottery Barn mirror and vanity, a Wii and numerous supplies for weaving bracelets and other fun activities
Game room fully equipped with Xboxes, computers, Playstation 3, Wii and Wii Dancing and Singing, Ms. Pac Man, board games, and a plethora of building supplies
Theatre equipped with a movie screen, HD projection camera, Dolby sound system, video camera and popcorn machine
Arts & science area with a myriad of supplies, designed to accommodate creative science and art projects
As a first time mom I was a bit apprehensive about leaving my 6 month old daughter with just anybody, especially during COVID, but the staff at Cadence Academy Preschool of Carol Steam were so welcoming and have by far exceeded my expectiations. Since enrolling, the center has gotten a total facelift with new paint and decor that makes you feel right at home once you walk in the front door. The communication from the center and from the teachers is outstanding! I always know what's going on and even get picture updates of my daughter throughout the day!They have cute center wide events planned that we are excited to attend as COVID dies down. I also look forward to seeing their "whole child" approach philosphy carried out in the curriuclum I was told about as she moves up into the older classes. Although apprehensive at first, after being here for a little over 2 1/2 months now, I can rest assure that my daughter is being cared for by some of the most kind and caring teachers around. I'm so happy we joined the Cadence Academy Family!

I called a few places around and RA came highly recommended through FB groups. We signed up our son, 2x a week, for a few hours to give it a try. We had some concerns such as separation anxiety on his end, and day 1 came and he bawled. Thankfully the staff at RA is well trained and knew how to handle the situation, the first 2 weeks were tough especially because it wasn't an everyday thing for our kid, but by week 3 when we woke up he got up, got dressed and was ready to roll at 645 am.
The director Ashley is amazing, she was very responsive and available with any questions I had. The teachers amazing, they worked with my son to ease him into an easy transition.
The daycare has an app which you're updated on the progress of your child which I LOVE! They send out emails constantly updating us about any changes and plans for the week ahead.
If you have kids and need childcare, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND RA!
Thank you to the amazing staff your work is greatly appreciated!

Love Rainbow Academy. My 2 year daughter has gone to Rainbow since she was 3 months. Teachers made my transition back to work after my maternity leave an easy transition. Amazing director, assistant director and teachers. They have made adjustments for COVID to insure our kids are safe. My daughter loves it there - she doesn't want to leave when I pick her up.
