Rainbow - przedszkole niepubliczne Kraków

“My two children attended Rainbow Preschool during my husband’s tour in Krakow, August 2002 through July 2004. I am thoroughly impressed with the care they received.

The staff created comfortable, friendly environment with the right amount of discipline. Once that was accomplished, they made sure kids excelled in (pre-school level) academics. What was very impressive to me as well is that children were not only schooled in various subjects but also socialized to live in a society where people share good values of respect for each other, tolerance and kindness. And all that was accomplished while bridging cultural differences which in itself could pose enough of a challenge.

When we first moved to Poland, my son Jason (who was 4 at the time) understood Polish but did not speak it. The staff at Rainbow made sure that he felt like he belonged in the new environment. Although I expressed a desire for him to speak Polish, he was never pressured to do so. If he was asked a question in Polish and answered in English he was understood and no issue was made out of his response. The ultimate result was that Jason started speaking perfect Polish several months into our tour and continues to speak it.

My daughter Magdalena attended kindergarten at Rainbow. The academic program was fabulous. She developed skills which allowed her to transfer effortlessly to a prestigious private school in Krakow and then into the Lincoln Community School in Accra, Ghana. She still recalls her kindergarten teacher and falls on skills she learned from her.

Like in every organization, attitudes come from above. I think what makes Rainbow the greatest is genuine concern and love for children demonstrated in every decision Ms. Barbara Turopolska makes. Nothing in Rainbow is out of context. It all comes down to the well being of an individual child.

As we travel from country to country, I wish I had a guarantee of meeting educators of the same statue – I could then be worry–free and rest assured that my children are in good hands. I wholeheartedly recommend the school to anyone who cares about their children’s emotional and academic development.”
