Our Vision

Rain River Learning is a faith-based learning center that strives to provide parents with a home away from home for their children and make parent’s busy lives a little easier. In the absence of a primary caregiver, Rain River offers a loving environment where your child’s needs are addressed by a qualified, devoted caregiver who is there to attend to their well-being, growth and development, and emotional needs.

Rain River provides services above and beyond a traditional daycare setting to help parents throughout the workweek. With after school care and transportation, tutoring and homework help, extracurricular activities such as dance, karate, and gymnastics on-site, we work to take a little of the stress of ensuring your kids’ get a well-rounded education off your plate.
