Exciting News about the New Tadpoles® E-Communication Application
Established in 1997 by Guy and Julia Falzarano, Rainbow Academy Early Learning Centers has grown steadily, right along with the children it nurtures, to thirteen locations throughout New Jersey. In 2011, they began franchising and already have another fifteen franchises currently under development. In all this time, Rainbow Academy has never outgrown its’ unique approach to childcare and early education offered to thousands of children and their families. Instead, the childcare franchise company strives to provide the very best in early learning to its students while addressing the unique needs of the parents it serves through innovative means, including extended hours and extracurricular activities incorporated into the school day.
One of the most valuable tools to combining a higher level of early education for its students and bridging the gap between the parent and the classroom is Rainbow Academy’s unique use of technology. State-of-the-art ParentView® internet monitoring, biometric finger scanning and interactive whiteboard technology have all been in place in Rainbow Academy centers for some time. With the arrival of 2013, the childcare franchise company is excited to announce the launch of an entirely new e-communication app called Tadpoles®.
Acting as a conduit between the childcare center and parent, Tadpoles® utilizes mobile technology and provides real-time access. During the school day, teachers use the app to log a child’s educational achievements, as well as send reminders and provide important information such as a child’s daily activities, meals, naps and potty times. Special moments are also shared with parents by sending heartwarming photos and fun-filled video footage.
Rainbow Academy has built a solid reputation among their parents in large part because of their “Circle of Care” philosophy – a core belief that the happiness of its’ franchisees and teachers, the needs and wishes of its’ busy working parents, and the care and education of its’ children are interconnected and equally important components. To that end, the childcare franchise company blends family-focused programs and advances in technology with a genuine sense of care and support in order to provide families with a winning combination at every Rainbow Academy center.
“We’ve discovered that at home for many of our families, ‘A’ is for App,” explains Falzarano. “Today’s tech-savvy parents are using educational websites and programs available on laptops, tablets and smartphones to teach their children everything from the ABC’s to geography. Tadpoles® is also used as part of our Seedlings Early Education Program to track developmental milestones as well as to communicate with parents. By sharing with parents that their child is learning about the letter ‘A’ in the Rainbow Academy classroom, families can use their smartphone or tablet to trace the letter, play word games together, or even watch a video of an ‘Antelope’ at a watering hole in ‘Africa’. Not only does this reinforcement bring the learning experience to life, it keeps children engaged and having fun. It also connects parents to their child’s classroom in a powerful and meaningful way.”
