Rainbow Cottage opened in January 1992 catering primarily for the children of working families.
Rainbow Cottage is sponsored by Dubbo City Council which is responsible for the administration and control of the Centre.
Rainbow Cottage provides a caring, homelike atmosphere conducive to meeting the needs of each child.
We believe the children who come to our Centre have a variety of personal experiences and environmental factors which contribute to personal development.
As Educators of young children, we acknowledge and value the differences in the children who attend Rainbow Cottage.
While many children follow a general pattern of development, we recognise that each child is unique to themselves and their family.
We will endeavour to meet, accept and support children’s existing knowledge.
Children at different ages and stages are given the opportunity to mix with children their own age and children of other ages.
