Rainbow Room Mom Joyce Avestro’s daughter Jade gained confidence to face big challenges ahead

How was Rainbow Room Learning Center beneficial to your child’s development?
She was not interested in Social Studies and Filipino at first, but when she graduated, she got Academic Excellence in both subjects. That’s in addition to Academic Excellence award in a number of other subjects. She’s reading well now, and loves Math and Science from the start. She’s enjoying Math so much, especially number bonds, that she answers her old workbooks during spare time, and even creates her own worksheets for us to answer. She became confident and friendly, too. Prior to joining Rainbow Room, she was a bit shy and reserved. Now, she’s confident enough to face the challenges of the big school ahead.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
Teachers are generally helpful and friendly. The individualized approach is beneficial to the students. Our daughter loves her teachers, even from school years that passed.

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
Gaining friends, knowledge and experience, both for the kid and the parents.

The progressive approach is very much useful in child development, especially pre-schoolers. It proved true to its claim. Our child has become more confident. The children benefit significantly from the learnings that they have acquired. They were able to experience what they were taught first-hand. All the field trips and hands-on activities were quite fun that they didn’t feel like they were doing school requirement. Learning in a fun and effective way is the way to go.

Applying ‘Invented Spelling’

What is invented spelling?
• Invented spelling refers to young children’s attempts to use their best judgments about spelling.
• The practice of spelling unfamiliar words by making an educated guess as to the correct spelling based on the existing phonetic knowledge.

Why invented spelling?
• It is a great indicator of future success as a reader.
• It develops stronger reading skills regardless of existing vocabulary, alphabetic knowledge or word reading skills.

Examples of invented spelling:

How can we help our children develop this skill?
• Children should simply be encouraged to write.
• Have the child read back his/her writing and praise them for the attempt.

* don’t make a big deal out of pointing out the differences or correcting the misspellings.
* Let the child internalize the letter-sound associations as he or she learns to write.

EVENTUALLY, YOUR CHILD WILL HAVE A SOLID UNDERSTANDING OF HOW LETTERS AND SOUNDS COMBINE TO MAKE WORDS. THIS WILL BE THE CHILD’S PATH TO READING SUCCESS.

The Legend of the Easter Bunny and the Easter Egg Hunt

The idea of the Easter bunny bringing eggs was a tradition first brought to the United States by early German settlers during the the 1700s, many of whom settled in Pennsylvania. Over many years, the Easter bunny has become the most accepted symbol of Easter around the world.

The Legend of the Easter Bunny and the Easter Egg Hunt

The Easter bunny, also called the Easter hare or spring bunny, brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy, and sometimes toys to the homes of children on the night before Easter, the same way Santa Claus delivered presents during Christmas Eve. The Easter Bunny will either put the baskets in a designated place or hide them somewhere in the house or garden for the children to find when they wake up in the morning, giving rise to the tradition of the Easter egg hunt. With Easter being a day of celebration of Jesus Christ’s resurrection, the legend of the Easter bunny and Easter egg hunt did not come from the Bible.

Rainbow Room Learning Center would like to wish everybody a Happy and colorfully fun Easter.

Rainbow Room Learners have Taekwondo this Summer

The potential benefits of what Taekwondo training can do for your kids are quite massive. One of the benefits of doing this form of martial art is physical fitness. Due to its physicality and movements, it simply becomes a great way to achieve physical fitness.

Another benefit of Taekwondo would be increased concentration span. Because it involves many forms and striking, one is taught to thoroughly concentrate on either performing the right forms or not getting hit by the other practitioner during sparring.

The best benefit however is increasing a child’s self-confidence as knowing how to defend one’s self from harm’s way is a great to gain higher self-esteem.

Taekwondo is a part of Rainbow Room’s summer programs. Enrolling your kids in this program is a great way of making their summer vacation colourfully fun.

The sixth “C” in 21st Century Learning

The sixth "C" in 21st Century Learning

Literacy with Information and Communication Technology means thinking critically and creatively, about information and about communication, as citizens of the global community, while using ICT responsibly and ethically. ICT matters to early childhood due to its effect on people and environment that surrounds the child’s learning. In addition, technologies offer new opportunities to strengthen many aspects of early childhood education. There is support across the whole education sector for the development and integration of ICT into education.

In a classroom setting, literacy in ICT can be very beneficial to a child. It provides a variety of ways for the child to weave together words, photos and sounds, thereby providing a range of ways for children to communicate their ideas, thoughts and feelings. A good application or software can enable a child to engage in self-directed exploration, which can fit the child’s individual needs.

I am thankful for Rainbow Room for paving the way for my daughter

How was Rainbow Room Learning Center beneficial to your child’s development? Rainbow Room was beneficial to my child in terms of developing her love for learning. She has been wanting to explore, experiment, and try different kinds of activities ever since. When it comes to academics, she excels in Reading and Language. I am thankful for Rainbow Room for paving the way for my daughter to also still excel in different ways now that my child is already in “big school”.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
Rainbow Room teachers were very helpful, patient, and accommodating. They acknowledge the fact that each student is different, that each one has his or her own learning pace. Understanding each student’s personality type and not making them feel like they were any less was also one thing I appreciated about them. Parents were able to feel that their children genuinely love their teachers in return

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
The most memorable experience for me was the field trip to UP Diliman’s Astronomical Observatory. It was my first time to see the moon up-close and even got to see some planets. The pictures of the moon and planets that the kids only get to see in books became a reality! I also really appreciate the fact that even though the venue was quite far and it was at night time, Rainbow Room went out of their way to make that surreal experience possible for both the students and parents.

Rainbow Room Learning Center has been really beneficial to my child in a lot of ways. I was elated to have found a school that shares the same ideals and principles as what we, as parents, believe in. The experiential type of learning was indeed helpful in a lot of ways in the sense that children don’t just see and learn things, but the knowledge is retained because they actually got to be really involved therefore deepening their understanding and skills.

Effective communication is using the best possible means of connection to relay information or impart knowledge. This can also mean articulating thoughts and ideas effectively using oral, written and non-verbal skills in a variety of forms and context.

The fifth "C" in 21st Century Learning

In a classroom setting, a child who applies a 21st century learning approach can build effective communication skills through the media rich world they are surrounded by. Rather than explaining a topic or reporting what they have learned, there are other ways to enhance and show these skills. For example, allowing the child to help solve problems by using formats they see around them, such as news or interactive games, is a great way for them to show effective communications. It is not about technology but about learning.

This means that students are the “media producers” and not just consumers.
In Rainbow Room Learning Center, we teach our children to effectively communicate by letting them speak their thoughts as this makes learning colourfully fun for them.

Being part of Rainbow Room makes you belong to a real family

How was Rainbow Room Learning Center beneficial to Mikko’s and Mikaela’s development?
MS GERALDINE DE ASA: When Mikko started with Rainbow Room, he was aloof and not comfortable with a lot of people. He would cover his ears during social gatherings and would want to play by himself although looking at other kids but always hesitant to join them in play. He was left alone with his yaya at home during weekdays so we decided to enroll him in the first summer class of Rainbow Room. Initially it was a challenge for him, but since the lessons were interactive, he became eager to go school. He had lots of friends and continued to explore his talent in memorization during school programs and started to read early because he was given the chance to make his favorite character “Thomas and Friends” as his inspiration to tell his favorite stories.

Mikaela’s first crowd exposure after birth was with Rainbow Room. She was born a few weeks before her brother’s graduation day so she happened to attend his moving up activity! As she grows, she is exposed with Rainbow Room as her next milestone and she was able to achieve it as a “saling pusa”. At first she was so shy. She wouldn’t want to participate easily but then her character was developed and eventually made friends. Then came the actual school year and she would always go to school with a perfect hairdo. She wanted to be in school looking really great and always excited to be there because of the sing and dance activities.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
Rainbow Room teachers are very hands on. They understand all the emotions of their students and deal with them separately. They encourage the kids to be themselves because the children see them enjoying what they do as well. Being with small kids with all the mood swings and uncontrolled situations, is something that they have managed really well.

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
Being part of Rainbow Room makes you belong to a real family. It is my kids’ second home and comfort place because we feel the sincerity and care of the teachers to our kids. Rainbow Room kept us binded and friends with other families as well because they promote good values and camaraderie.

Family Day is always the most awaited actvity of the year because we get to be with the rest of the people who share a common goal… that is to make our kids happy!

My son is one of the pioneers of Rainbow Room. There maybe a few challenges during the initial months, but that didn’t stop them in bringing the interest of the kids to learn. That special touch is the key to their success which made them grow. It’s always hard for the kids to move on to big school after graduation because they would always want to come back to Rainbow Room and relive the good memories that made them where they are now.

Choosing the right school for our boy was a big decision and Rainbow Room did not fail us

How was Rainbow Room Learning Center beneficial to your child’s development?
PARENTS OF DUKE PUNZALAN: Through various Rainbow Room activities, he (Duke) was able to enhance his motor, communication, and relationship skills. As to the academic subjects, RR exceeded our expectations as they teach in a very creative way thus allowing more retention of information and more interest.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
They are competent, caring, and available. No questions about their ability to teach little kids, they’re masters of their craft. As parents, we felt that our son and the other kids were being cared for and treated well, not just as a regular student. What we also appreciate is how approachable they are and can elaborate how the kid is performing at a detailed level that we appreciate.

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
How they involve the family unit in several activities, how happy our son is coming home from school which means he had a great time, and the relationship we had and continuously have with his teachers.

Preschool years are the most important in a child’s education. Choosing the right school for our boy was a big decision and RR did not fail us. While Duke was in RR, we saw him transform in ways more than one. RR was able to feed his curious little mind, he was allowed to freely express his feelings and emotions without fear, they had a good balance of indoor and outdoor activities that satisfied his level of energy, and most importantly, learned the foundation of education while having fun. He gained a lot of friends (even us parents!) and the love of his teachers. Those years were priceless.

The Fourth “C” in 21st Century Learning

Cross-cultural understanding is a field of study that looks at how people from differing cultural backgrounds communicate, in similar and different ways among themselves, and how they endeavour to communicate across cultures. In 21st century learning means be well versed when it comes to cross-cultural understanding and its aspects.

In a classroom with cultural diversity, this means being understanding to the behaviour of others who do not have his or her cultural background. In the language aspect for example, a child aware of cultural diversity must translate his or her account in a language that the all listeners can relate to. Being aware of common non-verbal interpretations is also key. This means being sensitive to what gestures or non-verbal behaviour is acceptable to both your culture and the others around you. For example, a child from bowing culture must not label a child from a non-bowing culture as impolite. Lastly, stereotyping cultures is also something to be avoided as this can lead to wrongful expectations and notions.

Rainbow Room Learning Center teaches students the many different cultures in the world as part of 21st century learning.
