Daycare

Daycare is available for children ages three through kindergarten, offering a program that emphasizes school readiness, with an extended day format to accommodate working families. The thematic curriculum focuses on developing skills through a variety of activities and incorporates daily faith-based instruction.

The Center is open year-round from 6:30am until 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.

Kindergarten children receive specialized daily lessons which reinforce skills they are learning in school. Transportation is available for children who live in the Loucks zone of West York Area School District.

Rainbow Junction has earned a STAR 2 designation in the Keystone STARS program, a learning initiative to assure quality child care across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
