Our History

Rainbow Connection had it's beginnings as an in-home childcare and preschool.  It was owned an operated by Rose Calvin in Federal Way from June of 1987 until August of 1991.  During that period Rose developed her childcare program philosophy by blending her real life childcare experiences with her academic training and classwork.  Also, during that period she was active in the Family Childcare Association serving as president of the South King County chapter.  She also established the Federal Way Chapter.

In August of 1991, Rose opened her first childcare program outside of her home at the Park at Dash Point residential community.  There she leased a 6,000 square foot building began offering center based care.

In January 1993, Rose was a awarded a contract with the City of Federal Way to provide on-site before and after school childcare at Twin Lakes Elementary in Federal Way and we now provide the same care at Brigadoon Elementary in Federal Way.

In June of 2000, Rose and Rainbow Connection opened our center at Norpoint and 29th Ave N.E. in Northeast Tacoma.

In July 2002,  our center at Milton / Edgewood was opened.

In July 2004, we proudly opened our center at Buckley.

In July 2008, Rose and Rainbow Connection opened our newest center at Orting.
