Rainbow Montessori looks at the toddler as a child between 24 months and 36 months. It is a period characterized by the need to explore everything, and to move and develop large motor coordination and strength. We believe there is a huge expansion into language during this stage. The toddler develops a capacity to create symbols, images and concepts, and become aware of him/herself as a separate and independent person. The mastering of toilet training is a focal point at this age.
Child to Teacher Ratio: 12:1

COVID-19 Modifications as of March 16
Today, the Santa Clara County Health Department issued a “shelter in place” order, which can be found at :
Although the order gives day care centers the option to stay open during this period of time, we have decided to err on the side of caution. Therefore, we will be temporarily ceasing operations and closing Rainbow Montessori, effective Tuesday, 3/17. This closure will likely be in effect through Tuesday, 3/31, and will be re-evaluated at that time. During our closure period, we will continue with our carpet deep cleaning and hard surface cleaning to ensure a safe environment upon our return.
Thank you for your patience,
Rainbow Montessori Administration Staff
