Rainbow Academy has 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, Rainbow 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 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

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.

Our child has been attending Rainbow Academy for 2 years, since he was an infant. We've been extremely pleased and know that he's in excellent, loving care. The school communicates well with parents: Pre-COVID, we entered the classrooms to pick up our kids and would get verbal updates in addition to daily reports via an app; Post-COVID, we pickup at the front door so we've lost the direct communication with teachers, but still receive daily reports via an app. I know that if we have a concern, Rainbow's teachers and admins are available to discuss with us. The school provides safe, quality care and education at a fair rate. Very pleased with our time at Rainbow and am happy to recommend them to other families.

Our daughter has been at Rainbow a few days a week since she was 6 months old. She's now 3 and doing so well with vocabulary, sharing, and playing with others. The teachers and staff are exceptional to work with and keep us informed of everything. They also went above and beyond to try to accommodate kids/parents throughout the COVID crisis.
