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

Rainbow is the best! We have 2 kids attending right now and I have never had a concern about their health safety or happiness. My older daughter loves her friends and gets excited for school! The director and front desk staff and teachers are all super responsive with communication. We get updates and pictures throughout the day on an app as well, which is awesome. We are so lucky to have Rainbow for our girls!

Both my sons attend Rainbow and have been attending since they were infants. We love it there and have nothing but good things to say. All of the teachers, directors, and staff members go above and beyond to care for my children. I feel safe and comfortable sending my kids there and know they are receiving high quality care and education. I highly recommend Rainbow to anyone looking for a daycare that treats you like family and truly care for your children!

When My Wife and I had our First child it meant we needed to look into the best daycare to meet both our needs and our little girls needs. After much searching we decided on Rainbow Academy. We have been trusting them with our daughter for over a year now and still feel we made the best choice possible. The teachers work with you to ensure your child's needs are met. When our daughter was struggling with a bottle they communicated with us when she wouldn't take it and we worked with them to figure out what she needed to eat better. Then as she has gotten a little older they have worked with her on sign language and even with identifying some animals. It is nice knowing that while she is away from us she is still getting to learn and develop with others. We feel they help compliment our efforts to teach our daughter about the world and help her develop. Then when Covid19 entered the world they truly stepped up their game trying to ensure all student are kept safe and parents can have some peace of mind while they are trying to work in this chaotic time.

We love Rainbow and appreciate their dedication to following safety procedures to keep families healthy. Our son in the Owl (PreK) room is learning so much! He's excited to share the lessons each day and adores his teachers. Our younger son in the infant room and is always cheerful and well cared for. We love seeing the updates on their app throughout the day! Everyone is kind and the directors are very responsive, supportive, and helpful!
