"They are always working on art projects, music, and age-appropriate academics and they regularly share activities"
Read More

We started my son at Over the Rainbow in the Toddler room. It was his first time at a daycare and the staff did such a great job making us all comfortable with the transition. There is constant communication with us throughout the day and my questions are always answered. My son has since moved into the Jr.Preschool room and has loved each of his teachers and all of the staff. He has learned so much since starting at Over the Rainbow and the interaction with other kids is invaluable. They are always working on art projects, music, and age-appropriate academics and they regularly share activities the whole family can participate in. We're so glad we chose Over the Rainbow.

"They communicate with you very well about what's going on in the school"
Read More

My husband and I took a tour of this school in the summer of 2021 and I immediately knew I wanted my son to go here. We looked at other schools as well but we both agreed that the atmosphere and size of the school was perfect!
Our son started here in September of 2021 and he absolutely loves it!!! He is currently in the preschool classroom with Ms Dyana and she is absolutely wonderful!!! You can tell that she LOVES what she does because it comes through in her work with all the kids. The rest of the staff at the school are fantastic too. They communicate with you very well about what's going on in the school and/or any issues.
We are all so happy with this school!!!

"She comes home every day singing new songs, saying new words, counting, and telling us about all of her friends"
Read More

I could not say enough good things about Over The Rainbow! We enrolled our daughter about 6 months ago and she absolutely loves it. She wakes up every morning asking to go to school. We have also seen a huge advancement in her development and socialization skills. She comes home every day singing new songs, saying new words, counting, and telling us about all of her friends at school, and she is not even 2! The staff is always friendly, accomodating and helpful. You can tell that they genuinely care about the kids and are passionate about what they do. I would highly recommend this school for anyone looking for a nurturing and fun environment and highly skilled staff for their children!

"I've seen her grow in so many new ways; she's developed social skills, become more independent"
Read More

My daughter started at Over the Rainbow this past year. As a first-time parent, I was understandably nervous to transition her from home to a daycare setting. But OTR keeps the line of communication open every day -- constant updates via Procare of what and how she's doing - which helps a lot! And since my daughter started at OTR, I've seen her grow in so many new ways; she's developed social skills, become more independent, and tried new foods and activities. Finally, I like that they partner with Virtua Pediatric Mobile Services and the Bordentown School District; I researched many daycare locations, and none provided these additional services. Overall, I'd highly recommend Over the Rainbow!

Absolutely love Over The Rainbow. Best decision of childcare for my son. He has been there for 5 years now and loves going everyday!!! Couldn't find a better institution!!! We not use Over The Rainbow for before and aftercare, as well as days off from school. They are always welcoming and efficient with how school work. He's extremely well taken care of!!!!!

"The kids get breakfast, lunch and snack every day, and the menu varies and is well-balanced"
Read More

My son, now almost four years old, has attended OTR since I returned to work from maternity leave. The staff are caring, creative and loving. The kids get breakfast, lunch and snack every day, and the menu varies and is well-balanced. I know that if I only have time to throw chicken nuggets in the oven for dinner, he's had two quality, healthy meals for the day! Each class has a curriculum, even for the littlest ones, which both challenges their little minds and keeps them enthusiastic about I&arning. My husband, son and I are pleased to be a part of the OTR family.

"They work with the parents to deliver high quality care for the children"
Read More

I had my son in a different daycare for his first 9 months before Over The Rainbow. They tried very hard to mimic this facility, but fell far short of the quality and professionalism OTR delivers. The staff is courteous and caring. They communicate with parents extensively. And they are happy to help any way they can. They work with the parents to deliver high quality care for the children. And they keep the parents and family involved every way they can. My son and I are both very happy with OTR.

"My kids love it here and the staff have treated my kids like family since we first enrolled"

I am so grateful for all the staff at OTR. My kids love it here and the staff have treated my kids like family since we first enrolled. You guys make it easy for the parent and fun for the kids! My boys always rave about the teachers and the fun things they get to do. Thank you for all that you do for our family!

"The team is beyond wonderful- highly communicative, qualified, and dedicated to providing an exceptional experience"
Read More

When we moved to the area, we began the search for a new school for our, at the time, 4 year old son. After evaluating a number of schools in the area, we chose Over The Rainbow and we couldn't be happier! The team is beyond wonderful- highly communicative, qualified, and dedicated to providing an exceptional experience. Not only are we incredibly happy with the quality of care and education, but this is a school that strives to build a supportive and connected culture rooted in community.
Safety has been a number one priority for OTR- couldn't be more pleased with the standard they've held over the course of the pandemic.
Overall, we HIGHLY recommend Over The Rainbow! Tons of value, wonderful team - truly couldn't ask for more.

"My grandson has really been enjoying using his motor skills, painting, coloring, playing ball in the gym and Learning a lot"
Read More

Over The Rainbow is an exceptional Childcare Center. My grandson has really been enjoying using his motor skills, painting, coloring, playing ball in the gym and Learning a lot while in daycare. I also love the new Procare system! They give you up to date information and pictures all throughout the day, including what they ate.. nap time, easy access to Update the Parent and/or teacher through messaging and so much more!
They always have great festivities and Events for the Holidays which we enjoy attending as a family! They also have easy access for picking and dropping off your child/children by driving up and dropping off while an OTR Staff member comes out to take the temperature of each child and brings them into the daycare Center.

My child has been coming to this day care since she was 3 months. She is now two years old she has learned so much from this daycare. Her colors, shapes, numbers, and so much more. She has learned the fundamentals of sharing and being around other children. Not only has she learned so much the faculty members are the BEST caring loving patient they care for your child the same way you would care for your own children and that's why I love this place I would recommend Over the Rainbow to any parent . Safe and sound mind that your child is safe and well taken care of.

Latisha Small

My son (2) has been attending Over The Rainbow since he was 8 months old. At first, he was apprehensive, but now he loves it. The staff is quite friendly and accommodating. I do like how they include meals and snack. My son eats better when everyone around him is eating the same thing. He’s learned a lot of social skills at this school. The directors are super nice and will respond to any question you have. It’s the best choice for a daycare around here for sure.

Jenny McGrath

This school has definitely been a blessing in my life. Both of my kids go to this school and they absolutely love it. The staff are very pleasant and the teachers treat the children like  their own. This is one of the only daycares that has had the same staff for more than 25 years. I drop my kids off here and feel like I am leaving them with family. I highly recommend this place and give it 5 stars.

Jazz Queen

This school is fantastic.  My 3 year old has a wonderful time. Every teacher and staff member is a pleasure to interact with. Since they provide all the meals my son is trying foods that he would never try for me. Not prepping food for the day is a big time saver in the morning. I highly recommend this place.

Regina Wachenheim

I currently work at Over The Rainbow CDC and love it! The staff there is amazing, and welcomed me with open arms and made me feel apart of a family since day 1. Everyone is so great with the kids and treat them as if they were our own. My favorite thing is that they even provide breakfast, lunch, and a snack. I highly recommend bringing your kids to OTR!

Alexis Sanchez

My youngest daughter (4 years old) has been there since she was an infant and has learned so much!! She loves going there and is able to communicate to me everyday on what they are doing in class.  My middle daughter (9 years old) goes there when she is off from school and she loves hanging out with the younger children and being a "helper" to the teachers. My oldest son (12 years old) goes to before and after care there and he gets homework help and often helps out in the office. They all love it!! This school is not just a preschool- it is truly a home away from home for my kids!!

Christina D'Amico

I love that they not only accommodate my baby and his multiple food allergy, BUT they also accommodate ME! The crazy, over protective, over worried Mom who always has a million questions, (that they gracefully answer) and a million suggestions (that they lovingly take into consideration). I keep Ms Jill in the office at least 15 minutes longer than she has to be, every other Friday evening, and she treats me like I’m the most important person in the building no matter what else is going on. I haven’t met any staff or office admin who didn’t show love to every child who was in their presence. I feel like my baby is safe in their care. Bravo OTR!

Eulina McClinton

Over the Rainbow has been a blessing for me and my kids. My oldest son is autistic and attended their summer program in the past and they were amazing with him. My 3 year old has been there since he was 18 months and has learned so much. The staff is always pleasant with smiles every day. I couldn't ask for a better place!

Jennifer Mora

My daughters attend this day care center for their before and after care program. The bus picks them up from here and takes them to school and brings them back for the after school care which is so convenient for me since i'm a single mom with no one to watch them during my work hours. The teachers are very hands on with them and actually play with them instead of just sitting there. Mrs. Jill and Mrs.Brenda are absolutely amazing!!! they are a must to check out.
