Preschool Program (Ages 2.9-5)
Rainbowdance© for Pre School children continues to reinforce trust and stability through the use of repetitive and integrated movements and sound. With the familiar beginning and ending circles framing the structure of this intervention, activities which encourage exploration of the environment are sandwiched between; Children explore: their relationships to each other, self regulation and modulation, and their unique places in the natural world through a story and movement improvisation. The dynamic relationship between individual and group esteem is woven into the Rainbowdance© experience.
Transition to Kindergarten (Ages 4-5)
The child who has developed self-esteem and confidence is prepared to confront social challenges with curiosity and courage. A recent Massachusetts Governor’s forum on Readiness for Kindergarten agreed that social and emotional health at the preschool level increases children’s readiness for kindergarten. If they feel regulated, confident and empathic towards others, they will be successful in a formal school environment. In this model we expand the repertoire, increasing it’s sophistication to mirror the challenges children will face in the formal school environment.
Attunement Program (Ages 0-2.9)
For Infants and Toddlers, the goal is attachment. Trust in the social and physical environments must be developed before any other goal setting or curriculum can be initiated. The repetitive and integrated nature of Rainbowdance’s Toddler Attunement program enables even the most challenged infants and toddlers to experience safety and dependability through mirroring, song and natural body movements.
Elementary Program (Ages 6-8)
Beginning exploration of the social and physical environments, meaning and purpose emerge as goals for the healthy child. We address three challenges: 1)Understanding one’s place in the Greater reality, minimizing the sense of isolation. 2)Experiencing the value of responsibility to and service for the social and physical environment 3)Choosing creative and cooperative rather than violent solutions to conflict.
