My son goes here, he has fun and there is fun little events for the kids to enjoy. I pay it's 40+ a day for private pay it your wondering... about 200$ a week for 5 days for private pay. It's a good place tho. You get mobile updates like pictures, videos and updates on what they ate what they've learned. I recommend

Color our Rainbow Acadamy is absolutely wonderful! I started sending my son there this year and I have seen an amazing change in him with only being there for 3 months! The staff is wonderful and so friendly and treat my son like their own! I would highly recommend to everyone! Thank you Color of Rainbow Staff!!

I love Color Our Rainbow. My child joined during the pandemic and has only been with them a year. Coming in during a pandemic and not being able to even see where my child will be, they did everything to make us both feel so comfortable and secure through such a sensitive time. They overall handled the pandemic very well and did great throughout it! This center has many systems in place from health/safety, security, organization, lessons/learning, fun and more so the structure is appreciated. I have noticed that all of staff are caring and kind and work effectively collectively. This is the best daycare my child has ever attended, and one she was at nearly all her life. I’d give them 10 stars if I could

Brittany Fillian

My children have attended this daycare for about 5 yrs. All of the teachers they have had are amazing and the office staff is truly incredible. My kids have learned so much and made so many friends. Ms Anna is always so welcoming every morning and very helpful every time I call in with questions. She always has just the answer that I need.
Couldn’t recommend this daycare anymore!!
They are more like family to us 😊

As we get ready to embark on Kindergarten and all the big changes that come with that, I'm acutely aware of how awesome CORA has been to our family. We brought our child here when he was almost non-verbal and within a a month he was using his words... these days, he doesn't stop talking. I wish we could take credit for this, but we can't. His teachers and the classroom gave him the opportunities he needed to use his words and gave us the support we needed to help him at home (along with some other community resources like Help Me Grow). From Mrs. Debbie to Miss Terra to Ms Mary and Ms Carly - along with the fabulous office staff (Mrs Gina and Mrs Cara especially), we've always felt like CORA was an extension of our home. They've respected our decisions, encouraged and supported us when we needed them and helped whenever they can. Although no center is perfect, I can say without a doubt that we chose the perfect one for our family. Thank you to everyone who has touched our lives these past 3 years. We will be sad that our son doesn't spend his days with you come Fall but we are grateful that he will have somewhere same and familiar to go after school.

Can't say enough good about Color Our Rainbow! They're just so great. My kid's difficult sometimes and they're really great with him. Every single staff member we've interacted with is super friendly and just overall kind. They're half the reason my kid is as well adjusted as he is. So thank you, all of you!

Justina Burrell

My kids have been going to CORA for a few years now and we live it. The staff is so caring and helpful. It is honestly like an extended family. My kids have flourished and have made so many friends.

The teachers have always been open to new ideas to help my children feel comfortable and confident. They take the time to hear my concerns a d help me find ways to help my kids at home also so we are working together.

I love the care they provide and the peace of mind I have. I know my kids are being cared for by people that truly have their best interests at heart

I learned of Color Our Rainbow several years ago when my nieces and nephews attended. So when it came time for my grandchildren to start preschool there was never a second thought given as to where to send them. They teach the children in such fun and creative ways that most of the time they dont even realize they are learning while they are having fun. The staff is truly incredible in every way. Their door is always open and they listen compassionately to any concerns you may have. My grandchildren have all done amazing and grown so much since attending. It gives me a great piece of mind to know that they are being cared for by people who genuinely care about them. Even in this crazy year of Covid I know that the entire staff has gone above and beyond to keep everyone safe. Thank you Color Our Rainbow for all that you do and helping to shape our future leaders.

There are so many great things to say about Color Our Rainbow Academy (CORA) I’m not sure where to begin. I’ll start with the things that matter to me most as a parent. Safety: with the current pandemic, these folks have done an exemplary job keeping all the children safe with strict cleaning and sanitizing plus temp checks at drop off. The safety protocols before all this were already exceeding my expectations and they have continued to do so. Care: It seems like they think of everything when it comes to taking care of my child. From meal and lesson planning to crafts and play I know my child is being given the best care. My child is always engaged and learning. Communication: I am ALWAYS up to date with everything going on with my child through their mobile app and they answer any questions I have. They go above and beyond in keeping me informed whether it’s through the app, conversation at pickup or their awesome events calendars. Staff: This is probably the most important part for me. Everyone at CORA is amazing. At this point they are practically family. I felt my child was welcome from day one and all the staff adore him. Miss Gina, Anna, Jessica and the rest of the office staff are phenomenal. They’re always just a call away and really helpful. There aren’t enough positive adjectives to speak of the teachers, Miss Lexi, Donielle, Krista Jo, and Tiffany have been absolute jems. Lastly the pickup and drop off staff rock! Many of which are already named but Miss Amanda is awesome. She makes it a point to know all the parents by name. I can’t say enough about this place.

Shelby Winehouse

I love Color Our Rainbow My child has been going there since she was a toddler and I’ve never had an issue I love the way they treat her Anna is such a sweet heart and really is helpful and i trust my daughters teacher with her Ms.Melissa,Ms.Lexi and Mrs.Tiffany are so awesome it was such a relief to know that when i was at school or work, that my child was safe and well treated Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Daycare they treat your kids like family through good and bad days .

Christina Marie

When I first moved back to Akron, I was nervous about my kids going to a new daycare! Then I only had 2 school age boys! Once I had my daughter I couldn’t wait for her to turn 18 months to start! She is now 4, we love her teacher Mrs. Amy! Pick up and drop off is always made so easy, shot out to Mrs Anna,Gina, Melissa, Tiffany, Danielle , Jordan and Jessica! Thanks for keeping the kids and the center safe!

Thomas Svihlik

I can’t say enough great things about CORA. They have all been wonderful with our son. He looks forward to going every day. He has made many friends. The whole staff are just the friendliest people and love to celebrate any accomplishments the children have. Thank you Gina, Anna, Lexi, Jess, Jourden, Melissa, & anyone else I missed

Lovely Shelton

We made a switch to this school from headstart and we absolutely LOVE IT!!! My son is doing amazing in Ms. Carley's room He loves it so much and its worth every penny we pay for it!! I love all the parties and the tadpoles!! So happy we made the switch

Melanie Franks

Color Our Rainbow is amazing! The teachers care for each and every child as if they were their own. The children have fun and learn at the same time. Everyone is like family there. They are very welcoming and they strive to be the very best at everything they do. I am currently a student in an early childhood education program. I observe at CORA every semester and I have NEVER had a bad experience. Well done, CORA!! Keep up the great work!

Sachet Bickley

My son has only been with CORA for a little over a month but I can tell the difference in his behavior compared to the previous care he was under. From day one in the visit we were warm welcomed (my son wanted to start same day lol) , he is excited everyday to go to school. He is not starving when I pick him up, they provide great lunches for the children. My son absolutely adores his Teacher Ms. Denise. I'm appreciative that I can trust a provider to take care of my child while I am at work without any worries.

Brittnie Corbin

Everyone is so welcoming! All the kids just adore Ms.Anna my son has been going there for a few months & my daughter just started & they welcomed her with loving arms! Excited to see what the future holds for her. Highly recommend they answer any types of questions that you have.

sheleah burgess

I LOVVVVEEEEEE THIS PLACE!!!! Both my children grew up here from 6 months as a baby to school age. The staff is Excellent and keep the Morning energy alive each and every day. I love the people there because they make sure they know you and your family on a personal level. They care and have shown it each and every year I came back with my children. I would recommend this place to anyone who has children and need care.

Sarah Ziegel

Both of my children have attended here and have blossomed because of the amazing staff! Absolutely love this place!

Mrs.Carrie planned the best field trips in the summer and is a great teacher. Miss Tianna makes the best food especially the mac and cheese.

Jessica McDonald

CORA is such a blessing to our family. My wife and I have total peace of mind while we are at work knowing and trusting this staff to love and teach our two children. Miss Donielle is the tamer of two year olds, who has had both of our daughters. Miss Tiffany is preparing three year olds for kindergarten. My daughter knows so many letter sounds and loves everything about her classroom!

Janett M.

This center met and exceeded my expectations on several occasions. My youngest brother attended here as a preschooler in the early 2000s, and then my own children more recently. In the 15 years in between, this center has maintained their quality. They truly have an authenticity of caring that has set the bar very high for all other centers. The few years my girls were there happened to be the hardest I've encountered, but the kindness and consideration that was shown to me and my family was incredible. The only reason we left is because we moved. I will always continue to recommend this center when people ask me.

Nikee Nicole

Color Our Rainbow is fantastic!!. I would highly recommend them. They are so caring and treat you like family. My daughter has a special need and I feel most comfortable with her here. They are definitely on top of everything. My children love all the staff they get excited to see them like they would me lol. So cute😊. I have been to a few daycares in the past and after coming here I wouldn't want my children anywhere else. Looking forward to many years to come with Color Our Rainbow 🌈😊.They offer so much to the children learning and always great activities and awesome fieldtrips. Thank you Ms Gina and all your amazing staff and teachers everyone is absolutely GREAT😊🙂.

Kristen Hatfield

The staff is absolutely fantastic! They work with me and my child to make sure she has what she needs. Ms. Anna the director is amazing. She works with me to make sure I have the childcare that I need. When I applied for title 20 she did everything she could to make she they got what they needed. She is very understanding and helpful when it comes to unexpected needs and family emergencies. My child will be here until she ages out and all future children i have with attend this childcare as well.

Tary Fletcher

We love the daycare! My children have been there for a while & have grown with the Cora family. The staff is amazing & supportive to the families & children.

Alesia Schulte

We are so thankful for CORA! My oldest went through Pre-K and my youngest went through traditional preschool and is now in Pre-k. I have never been more thankful for a group of people. They go above and beyond in every way and put the kids first! Their concern and love for kids that aren’t even theirs is amazing! I would recommend them to anyone looking for preschool to full time child care!

Lachelle H.

My Children came from a home daycare to CORA about four years ago.. Me doing that was one of the best things that I could have ever done for my children. From the things that they have taught them; to the way that they treat them, CORA as a whole is a great daycare!! They provide many resources to help families who may be in need, and they also are VERY involved in community activities as well. I would recommend anyone to send their child there and they will definitely feel like that they have gained a new family...

Clarissa K.

Let me tell you my child has been attending this daycare for less than a year and when I say it feels like they are family is an understatement. My child was having trouble with her Chromebook for weeks and I couldn't keep leaving work to take care of it Mrs. Gina and Anna made sure that this was not an issue for me . This daycare makes sure my child feels safe and my daughter looks forward to going to daycare each day. She loves Ms.Jordyn and Melissa because they let her express herself . I have zero issues with this daycare Its the smiles the hard work they put into each child for me. Not to mention they barley close just so us parents can provide. Thank You to all the staff!!! : )

Kay Phelps

Literally the best. All the teachers & staff have been soooooo kind to both my kiddos for the past almost 4 years they've been there. My kids went from hating day care to loving it, and now they look forward to it every summer!

Danyell Allen

I have gotten SOOOO MUCH support from not only the whole staff at this daycare but Anna and Gina by far are who I talk to the most because of Covid THIS PLACE IS AWESOME my Amari and Rya’Niah loves it there they care so much about these kids and it shows always have tips advice or a listening ear in the freezing cold at pick up I LOVE IT THERE

Kayla Logan

My children and I moved to Akron 2 years ago from Indiana ,they went to one other daycare before I switched them to Color Our Rainbow. It honestly was the best decision I’ve made since my move. My children love it their and I love that they love it. There is know better feeling as a parent knowing that you’re dropping your child off to a safe, loving and healthy environment. The teachers are great, and I absolutely adore Mrs Anna she is always very responsive to my questions and she is usually the first person to greet my kids in the morning and she is nothing but sweet to them.... I have a 4 year old that just loves Ms Tiffany the way they laugh together and joke just lets me know that both my children are in the right place.

Ericka Solomon

Child care can be such a tough transition sometimes!!! Thank you Color Our Rainbow for all you do for both my kiddos!!! My son loves learning with Miss. Amy.

Kristen Svihlik

Everyone has been wonderful. They love our son like he’s part of their own family. They’ve been incredible for his sense of humor, his speech, his social skills, and they’ve even helped us with potty training.
I love everyone at this school.

LaChelle Id-Deen

I love color our rainbow this is my daughters first experience with a daycare that's at a center and she loves it. Mrs Amy was her first teacher and she's was AWESOME and now she's with me Jason and he's awesome as well. I see the growth in her and she hasn't even been there a full year yet. Overall I all the staff there is excellent ☺️☺️

April D. Haynes

So excited for my son to start! I have never visited a more well rounded curriculum based care for my son!

Kelly Fleming

My son attended the preschool program a few days a week for 2 yrs prior to starting kindergarten, and now goes to the before school program. At his kindergarten assessment he scored very high (level B reader), and was more than prepared to start "big boy school." I attended here myself 25+ years ago for pre-K, and remember being so excited to start school, just like my son is now. I've got a rewarding career as an LPN, and credit my success to having a love learning instilled early on. I'm glad to have been able to give my son a good head start with their help. I HIGHLY recommend CORA!

Tammy Newell-Robertson

Just love this place.trying to get the rest of my grandchildren to go there too.

Chris Crine

I would just like to take the time to thank CORA for helping my son grow into such amazing little man and getting him ready for kindergarten. Thank you to Mary, Tarren, Gina and Kara. We love you!
