If you did not receive an activation email, please let us know. I will also be sending a reminder tomorrow for those who have not yet activated.

Good morning, Rainbow Montessori Community:

The pandemic and all the actions that transpired from that two-year ordeal have unfortunately dealt a serious blow to our operation. Sadly, our school is approaching a crossroads and I feel that I need to reach out to everyone for ideas, assistance, and support. Our enrollment numbers are at a two-year low and this does not bode well, as low enrollment numbers make it difficult for us to meet our financial obligations (payroll, rent, insurance, electricity, supplies, materials, etc.). Rainbow Montessori needs to increase enrollment, and we need your help.

Right now, we have openings in every program, and we need our community to spread the word. We would love for you to tell your friends, coworkers, neighbors, and family that an excellent education is available at a reasonable price right here.

This is a terrific school, getting better all the time, and far more affordable than a lot of other schools in our area. We need our families to let other families know. We're here, we're open, and we have space. Word of mouth has always been our best advertising, and with your help in promoting our school, we firmly believe things will quickly turn around, and for the long-term. To show our appreciation for anyone willing to assist us in this task, we will offer a free month's tuition for every family you refer that is enrolled and in attendance for at least 6 months.

We could really use your help, and thank you so much for trusting us to educate your children.

Please also feel free to reach out to me directly on my mobile phone (510-565-6186) or through email (

Thank you in advance,

David Rodenborn

Hello Rainbow Montessori Parents,

I hope your children are enjoying a productive year in school.

The last 3 years have been challenging and we are relieved that the future is looking so much brighter. We managed to make it through the pandemic without increasing our rates, but it’s been 4 years since our last increase and an adjustment is now required. You will find our new rate schedule effective July 1, 2023 available on our website.

Along with the increase we are also adding a weekly option during the summer program that I think many of you will find beneficial.

We strive to provide your children the finest education at a reasonable price and I think you will find that even with this rate increase we are still very competitive in the local market.

Thank you for your continued support.
