    Magic Rainbow pre-school is the best pre-school in the southbay. My kids have attended magic rainbow for a couple of years now and I feel very lucky to have found this school. All the teachers are very caring generous and have many activities for all the kids. The director/owner is very caring and has established a curriculum that works! Your child will experience field trips concerts gymnastics swimming Spanish class cooking class (my kids love cooking). Let's not forget the wonderful school celebrations from Easter snow day (the school brings real snow and the kids slide down the slope) Halloween Christmas and family camping. The best part is my kids love going to Magic Rainbow are confident and I feel they will be well prepared for 1st grade. If you are looking for a warm friendly environment for you child this is the place for you. To us Magic Rainbow is like our family!

    I highly recommend Magic Rainbow Pre-School! The owner is wonderful warm and welcoming as is the entire staff at Magic Rainbow! I have two children (age 3 and age 4) enrolled at Magic Rainbow. They LOVE going to "school" every day! There are a variety of enrichment activities and my kids are learning something new every day! The staff are all long term employees who love the kids! Magic Rainbow provides a fun and safe environment for the kids. I'm so grateful to have found this place for my kids before they go off to kindergarten! They are more prepared and confident having been to Magic Rainbow!

    I have 4 children...we lived in the Westside when my 3 olders children attended Preschool but when we moved to the SouthBay enrolling our last one at Magic Rainbow from preschol (2 years old) to Kindergarten was the best thing we did Great school with amazing staff from the director to the teachers who have been there for 20 + years! We no longer have kids in Preschool or K but still go visit and attend their events. THE SAFEST AND BEST PLACE FOR YOUR LITTLE ONES IN THE SOUTH BAY! CC

    Magic Rainbow is a comfortable and fun school with a very stable staff. My son attended as a toddler and now my grandson and granddaughter go to Magic Rainbow. The director is wonderful!

    Magic Rainbow feels like a family rather than a factory. Most of the teachers have been there forever and this low turnover gives the kids a very stable environment. Plus you can trust that these teachers have truly seen it all and know how to react appropriately to any issue that might come up. Bonnie the director is so flexible and sweet and knowledgable and truly does what is best for every child. No politics here! Just a very stable friendly environment that fosters learning and socialization. I also really like the mix of developmental and academic curriculum.

    What an amazing place! I can honestly say that at Magic Rainbow they do everything right. My son attended there from the age of 2 through kindergarten and loved every minute of it. The staff is wonderful and consistent and the program excellent. My daughter will attend as soon as she turns two.

    As a former staff memeber I have to say that this is the highest quality preschool that I have taught in over my 19 year preschool teaching career. I only left the job due to relocation. You're child will be getting the best care here.

    I can honestly say I am very satisfied with Magic Rainbow for their academics (through play). My son has learned so much in the 6 months he has been attending. My only regret is that I did not start him earlier. I am very confident with my son s teacher and the rest of the staff. They are so easy to talk to and welcomes open communication. It is a very loving school community environment. They not only teach academics but they teach the children self-confidence sharing problem solving etc . My son loves going there! I will send my daughter as soon as she turns two.

    My son graduated fronm Magic Rainbow 2003 and he still recalls fond memories of the school every time we pass it by. The teachers and the administrator are caring and personable. My son was very well prepared and adjusted for public school kindergarten after Magic Rainbow.

    Love this school! I wouild never send my child to another school. Communication is always open with the teachers. The teachers that my twins have had so far are superior! Caring loving and very educated in their teachings with my sons. They treat my boys like they are their own. I will miss this school when my boys have to go to first grade in the public school system.

    The only day care I would ever leave my son at. He has learned so much I am so proud of him. He has a huge head start in life. Others schools like der kindergarden do not offer A good learning program.

    I love everything about this school. My son attended for three years and would still be there if they offered other grades. I plan on sending my other two boys when they are ready. I trust the staff here completely and am so grateful for the early experiences my son had here. There is an abundance of real love for the kids and respect for the parents as well.

    This school is awesome! It's a small community of teachers and families that are warm loving and very family oriented. I would recommend this school all the way. Every week they have new projects that my child talks about with excitement. My oldest daughter graduated from kindergarten and went into first grade reading and doing math full of confidence. My son is now in pre-k and is doing well academically also. I am pleased to say that there isn't a negative word I can say about this great school.
