"The school is good and so are the teachers."
- Hamden Parent

"We have had three boys go through this facility and they are all much better off because of it. This is more than a daycare. It is a learning facility."

"Over the Rainbow doesn't just babysit... they take pride in their work and are genuinely concerned for the well being and future of every child that passes through their doors."

"I will never be able to thank them enough for their work and I strongly urge anyone to call them first and find out for yourself."

"One of the main reasons that people look for schools is the level of education and care they are given. You also want to find somewhere that is convenient for you and your family. You will find them both at Over the Rainbow Childcare."
