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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Rainbow Room has proven to be one of the better decisions we’ve made as parents

How was Rainbow Room Learning Centre beneficial to your child’s development?
Rainbow Room Parent Nescel: When I enrolled my daughter in RRLC, I had little expectations on the academics. She was 3 years old then and the only child in the family. What I wanted was for her to learn how to socialize, how to properly relate to others, to understand that not everything is about her. She started with the summer classes for kids. After 6 weeks or so, I have seen the difference. She was “more patient”, she was following “rules” (like waiting for her turn and lining up), she knew how to relate to kids better – even sharing her favorite toys.

Rainbow Room has proven to be one of the better decisions we’ve made as parents

Later on, I could see that she was enjoying school – she was learning by doing. Am amazed by how they taught her to do addition and subtraction when she was still 4 years old. She was very aware of what’s happening in the country – SAF 44, the elections, and the like. She also learned how to appreciate her blessings as she started to participate in the reach in activity the school conducts every year. What I appreciated more than the academics was how RRLC, molded my daughter into a well-rounded child.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
My daughter stayed for 3 years in RRLC and all her teachers treated her as their own. They were very responsive – I’ve had my fair share of writing them a letter or 2 just to ask about an assignment or an activity and give my opinion…they will respond in a very respectful manner. While they know that the kids are there to learn, they also allow them to be kids – and that is something very important to me!

“Anika started out very shy – she would participate in circle time but will not talk during programs. Teacher Jonah was very patient with her…mindful not to cut her off when she says something and that’s where she built her confidence. Now I can’t make her stop talking and she’s not shy to participate in anything.”
-Teacher Jonas, Rainbow Room Teacher

“Very creative. She developed a plan specific for Anika so she can catch up on writing skills. We did a lot of finger painting at home and this has helped develop Anika’s love for writing. Thank God our walls were saved in all these writing and painting!”
-Teacher Jo-A, Rainbow Room Teacher

Rainbow Room has proven to be one of the better decisions we’ve made as parents

“Again, very patient. Anika is now very outspoken and will call out her classmates if they are not listening. Teacher Camz, patiently explained to Anika how to do these things without hurting others’ feelings.”
-Teacher Camz, Rainbow Room Teacher

“She treated us as family. When there was a fire near our area, teacher Rom sent me SMS and called me up just to make sure our family is safe. She didn’t have to do this but this was much appreciated!”
Teacher Rom, Rainbow Room Teacher

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
I won’t be able to pinpoint a specific experience. RRLC has been a partner in my daughter’s development. The 3-year journey will always be memorable.

While they know that the kids are there to learn, they also allow them to be kids – and that is something very important to me!

Enrolling Anika in RRLC has proven to be one of the better decisions we’ve made as parents. While it’s true that we, as parents, are responsible for raising good, kind, respectful kids, partnering with good schools will make our jobs easier. My daughter is very socially aware partly because of RRLC – and that is very important to us. I will never tire of telling anyone and everyone that RRLC is good choice when looking for a pre-school. Our family will forever be grateful as my daughter didn’t only have a school…she also found a second home in RRLC.

How was Rainbow Room Learning Center beneficial to your child’s development?
BOO and  JEN MAGLAQUI: Rainbow Room helped Franco to learn and achieve more especially in his math & science classes. He became more curious and always asks questions about things in his surroundings. His self-confidence also improved and his attitude towards people also changed.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
The teachers in rainbow room have been very helpful and caring for the children’s well-being. They focus on the child’s weaknesses and try to improve on that. They have accurate assessments and always tries to motivate the kids to do their best. These simple things make my son enjoy school more.

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
The most memorable experience that we had in rainbow room was the first family day that we attended. It was an amazing experience having to play against other groups. The kids & parents had fun playing the games and the level of completion per group increases every year

Rainbow Room has been an integral part of our kid’s growth. He learned a lot in his stay in Rainbow room and he is ready to move up to the bigger school this coming school year. The school has been a big help to us especially in moulding our son to be a better student, citizen and as a person.

 

Rainbow Room strengthen our daughter’s love of learning

How was Rainbow Room Learning Center beneficial to your child’s development?
The experiential approach with the different subjects has been instrumental in making learning fun for her at such a young age. We are happy to have witnessed how Gaby excelled in academics when she was in Rainbow Room and has brought this positive outlook now that she is in the big school as she continues to be a consistent academic awardee. I thank RR for being instrumental in strengthening the foundation of my daughter’s love for learning and continuously share with us in all her achievements in her big school.

Rainbow Room strengthen our daughter's love of learning

What were your child’s weaknesses as a student in Rainbow Room?
Our daughter‘s personality is generally on the shy side but Teacher Rom was able to develop her confidence in herself and to build relationships with her classmates.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
The RR teachers are very passionate in teaching, very warm towards their students, and sincere in developing each child.

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
Watching the kids dance and sing are the most memorable experience for me. There were a lot of activities like the Buwan ng Wika, Christmas Party, Family Day, and Graduation to name a few where we got to see my daughter perform along with the rest of the RR kids. We’ve seen how my daughter slowly gained her confidence in performing/speaking in front of a group during those activities and we’re very thankful to RR for creating those opportunities for the kids.

Our daughter was only 2 years old when she first entered the doors of Rainbow Room around 2010 as part of the first batch of the summer camp program. Since then, we have witnessed how Rainbow Room embraces the individuality of each child, hone their talents, and develop new ones. The experiential learning which RR highlights as a progressive school has been instrumental in developing our daughter holistically. The monthly themes and approach on these topics are well designed that it keeps my daughter excited to be in school every day. RR encouraged our daughter to stay curious about the world, to love life, to be the best that she can be. As an RR parent, we have also established lasting relationships with my co-parents because of the different activities the school has involving the parents in the child’s development. Now that we have our second child enrolled in RR and going through the same experience, We definitely are enjoying every moment like it was the first time seeing my son’s excited face showing his smiley stamped hands and tummy, telling me all about the songs he sang, art works made, and the different animals he learned!

“No regrets in choosing Rainbow Room to be part of my child’s foundation.”

Rainbow Room Learner Ethan

How was Rainbow Room Learning Center beneficial to your child’s development?
TANYA GONZAGA: Initially, we anticipated that the transition from informal learning (home) to formal education for Ethan would be a big challenge. However, Rainbow Room’s learning structure made it easier and interesting for him to adjust and cope up with school. All areas of child development are given attention to and by this I meant both academic and non-academic. He became more creative and this was very evident whenever we see how he plays with building blocks in school and at home. Aside from this, his reading skills went from zero to exceptional. At an early age, when all other kids his age couldn’t read, he is able to clearly read correctly and quickly. This strong foundation is very instrumental in his performance now at school.

What were your child’s weaknesses as a student in Rainbow Room?
The usual comment we would be getting from his teachers was that he was shy and does not readily speak up even though he knows the answers to questions. We, his parents, attribute this to his being an only child thereby making him socially restrictive.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
In my opinion, Ethan’s teachers were of high calibre with solid educational background. This makes them very effective teachers. Coupled with the fact that they are very approachable and full of self-control, kids love them.

There was one instance when we really witnessed a child who was very difficult to handle so Teacher Rom tried to pacify him by talking to him in a gentle voice, however, the child suddenly slapped Teacher so hard but Teacher kept her cool even though we know that it was really painful. This is one example of an unusual experience that makes you realize that your child is in the hands of people who are positive and nurturing.

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
We lived in Hong Kong for a year and when Teacher Rom (/Romina) visited the country, she made it a point to meet with us at Charlie Brown Café and go around HK for a day. Ethan kept talking about it for days whenever he would “Skype Call” our relatives in the Philippines.

We have no regrets in choosing Rainbow Room to be part of my child’s foundation. The academic program (progressive) prepared Ethan well for the rigors of further academic success now that he is in a big school. My child is in Grade 2 and he belongs to the top percentile of students with honors. A unique benefit of attending RR how positive and nurturing the environment which makes learning really conducive for the students.
Witnessing the progress of our child made us feel that we have made the right choice in partnering with Rainbow Room Learning Center. We know that there are a lot of schools out there, but students from RR are very similar in attitude and academic excellence to that of students from high calibre schools in the country. In fact, we have friends who transferred their child to Rainbow Room because they saw it was a very positive influence to our child’s growth.

PARENT: Rainbow Room has become a second home to our daughter

How was Rainbow Room Learning Centre beneficial to your child’s development? 
VERL MARQUEZ: Our daughter, Eila, attended summer classes for two consecutive years before officially going into regular class (Nursery) last school year. In those two summers, she was very shy, to the point wherein she only wanted to cling to me the whole time and even didn’t want to join class pictures. We were quite anxious when she started in nursery. A week after the class started, I was surprised as she went inside the room by herself and was okay to be left there without me. For me, the best thing that Rainbow Room did was to help nurture her social skills, making her very feel at ease with the concept of schooling and making friends. As for academic development, Rainbow Room made learning very fun and relatable to her. We are often amazed by the stories she shares about what she learned in school, from simple things like what sinks and what floats, or what things a plant needs to grow, to seemingly complex concepts (or at least we think so, for their age) such as the functions of internal parts of the body, or what the national heroes did ages ago.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
They are very patient and are always in good spirits. We appreciate how diligent they are in paying close attention to each child’s needs and quirks, and how they give sufficient time and care to each student to ensure that his/her pace of learning is met.

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
I find the field trips the most memorable as a whole. Those activities, no matter how close the location is or how short the activity is, help us see how our kids translate what they learned inside the classroom into real-life experiences.

 

As first-time parents, we are grateful that Rainbow Room has become a second home to our daughter. Rainbow Room has helped her come out of her shell, and has helped instill in her the love for learning, for making friends, and for appreciating what it means to go to school. We believe that Rainbow Room creates an enjoyable yet very teachable environment, where the emphasis is not really too much on academic learning, but on how the kids can understand different concepts through creative and critical thinking.

Rainbow Room Learner: Massimo Villapando, Rainbow Room Graduate 2014

How was Rainbow Room Learning Center beneficial to your child’s development?
IKOT VILLAPANDO:
In terms of character, Massimo became sociable and not shy to showcase his talents. I would have to attribute this to their field trip programs as they were designed to be interactive. In terms of scholastic achievements, he showed learning through everyday life application.

What were your child’s weaknesses as a student in Rainbow Room?
My son’s weakness was his focus. It was difficult to get him to participate in the early part of the class’ duration. Rainbow Room’s child friendly atmosphere and its effective teachers were very instrumental to the improvement of his focus. The faculty’s cheerfulness to him made him want to learn.

If I can do it all over again, I would still choose this school to guide my son for his formative years.

What can you say about the Rainbow Room teachers?
The Rainbow Room teachers were very accommodating to both the child and the parents’ needs. They were very helpful when it came when I needed academic assistance for my son. In addition to that, they give honest assessments of the child’s performance. I do believe that knowing your child’s real development is important. It helped me on having to use the right approach when I help my son study at home.

Which experience as a Rainbow Room parent did you find the most memorable?
During his time in Rainbow Room, what I find most memorable was being surprised at some of the knowledge my son displays. Every time I asked him where he learned the concept, he would always reply “I learned it from Rainbow Room.”

Where is your child studying now?
He is currently in Grade 2 at a Chinese Christian school in Makati (City).

Do you have anything more to say about Rainbow Room Learning Center?
Rainbow Room Learning Center prepared my son well for his big school experience. If I can do it all over again, I would still choose this school to guide my son for his formative years.
