Being away from your kids is hard. Let us give you some peace of mind while you’re away.

Decades of established research demonstrates that learning begins before birth and continues for a lifetime. Here at Rain River Learning Center, we know that life-long learning starts early in childhood, developing the brain and shaping your child’s future relationships and interactions. This is why our team is dedicated to providing your children with an environment that promotes early learning and supports social, emotional and cognitive development. Meeting your child’s needs in these vital areas will foster quality, trusting relationships with adults, caregivers, and peers both now and for the rest of their lives.

At Rain River Learning, we nurture your children’s hearts with activities that encourage strong bodies and minds while also building strong spirits. Our routine is designed to be fun, educational, and inspirational!

Kidding Around Yoga

Life can be stressful, even for children. This is why Rain River Learning Center offers a Kidding Around Yoga program aimed at helping to mitigate stress and calm your kids. With easy-to-follow, body-friendly postures, Kidding Around Yoga will help them stretch out and relax away the negative of impact stress on their growing muscles.

Kinder Fit

Rain River Learning Center knows that healthy brains require healthy bodies! Our Kinder Fit program was created with this in mind! Our fun, kid-friendly exercises will get their bodies moving, their blood flowing, and their minds stimulated! Happy hearts, happy heads, happy kids!

Gardening

There’s nothing more rewarding than watching our little ones learn and grow emotionally. Rain River Learning Center understands the role of nurturing as an essential part of emotional growth. Nurturing opens the heart and mind to needs other than our own, and gardening is a great way to teach children to care about the earth and all of its inhabitants. In our gardening program we get kids back to the earth so they can learn, get dirty, and have fun!

Art

Arts and crafts are a fun, resourceful way to express emotion and self, while simultaneously developing fine motor skills, independent thinking, and imagination. Rain River Learning Center’s broad-spectrum art program offers a wide variety of creative outlets from painting to Play-Doh, and of course, it’s fun!

Sensory Activities

We encourage building with blocks, using Legos, playing with trains, cars, dolls, and more. Play is the name of the game and guided, individual, or group play will be a focal point of the day at Rain River Learning. This is where social skills are developed, and their imaginations are set free.

Gymnastics/Karate/Dance

Gymnastics, karate, and dance classes are also available during your children’s normal schedules. These classes are run by professionals who come in to do special sessions just for us! So, while you’re at work, they are also enjoying enrichment activities that won’t eat into your weekends and evenings at home with them. (See Parent Resources for pricing.)

STEM Activities

A focus on science, technology, engineering, and math will lay the foundation for the activities we do with pre-k and school-aged classes at Rain River. These projects encourage problem-solving and will help them excel in school later on.

Reading

Kids and teachers have specially designed time every day to sit and read together. This valuable circle time will encourage listening skills and instill a lifelong love of reading. So, if you don’t have as much time to read with them at home after work, don’t worry, we have it covered!

Outside Play

Outside time and exploring nature is a critical piece to your child’s well-being and development. Scheduled outside playtimes on our environmentally-friendly plastic-free natural wood playground, and sessions to just roam and explore in a safe, controlled environment will be a daily occurrence. And with so much beautiful weather in Northeast Florida, being outside can be a big part of the day. We may collect rocks and examine them, find caterpillars and observe them together, or just swing and enjoy the sunshine!
