One of the Rainbow Centre’s key strategies is to focus on the young to ensure that by the time they are old enough to go to mainstream school at five, they have everything they need to gain acceptance, are academically able, emotionally adjusted and in good health. Since 2007, two pre-school classes have been run each year for 40 children who live in extreme poverty. All teachers are sent on government accredited training courses.
The Rainbow Centre runs its pre-school according to a national curriculum but also gives extra classes in English, maths, general knowledge and art. To date, the Rainbow Centre has placed a total of 460 children in the mainstream system, mostly from its pre-school.
