About Luca's Rainbow Bilingual Preschool II in Springfield, VA

We are a Bilingual Montessori-based daycare in Springfield. We care for children from 4 months to School Age (6 and older) and provide a range of age-appropriate resources and activities to encourage their development right up until they are ready to join school.

Who We Are

Luca's Rainbow Bilingual Preschool II got its start in Springfield in 2023 by Flor Brea. We decided to do things a bit differently at Luca's Rainbow by creating a space which fosters early learning in a fun and safe environment where children from 4 months to School Age (6 and older) can explore the world around them.

We believe our innovative approach gives children a bright and positive start in life as we encourage both exploration and discovery as well as emotional intelligence and building friendships.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is based on learning and creativity. By implementing a Spanish Bilingual blended Montessori method that incorporates indoor and outdoor classrooms and environments in a home-away-from-home environment, we are able to create a space where children feel empowered and ready to learn. 

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a safe and supportive atmosphere that will encourage each child to develop physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively in a Spanish bilingual environment.

Our Approach

Our low teacher-to-student ratio allows us to focus on each child individually. Teachers work one-on-one with children, allowing them to learn and grow at their own pace using a Spanish Bilingual blended Montessori program.

Our Mission

Our mission at Luca’s Rainbow is to provide young children with opportunities to learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment by providing them with an immersed Spanish bilingual blended Montessori approach.

At Luca’s Rainbow, we recognize that choosing the right preschool for your 2-year-old is crucial. You want an environment that is both safe and nurturing while also offering opportunities for your child to be challenged and develop their social and emotional skills.

Our specialized toddler care program provides the perfect balance of nurturing, playtime, and educational activities, all while offering immersion in English and Spanish. That's why our teachers utilize a Montessori blended learning approach paired with bilingual immersion.

Green Class

For 3-year-olds, the Green Classroom offers a foundational introduction to more classic learning and social interaction. Through a variety of subjects including literacy, math, science, and creative arts, children develop essential skills such as shape recognition, counting, and storytelling. This stage emphasizes collaborative learning, fine and gross motor skill development, and social communication. Math concepts include shape identification, sorting, and simple counting, while literacy focuses on name recognition, storytelling, and vocabulary expansion, while science topics include exploring insects, plants, colors, and the five senses, and creative arts involve using various materials, exploring different art processes, and engaging in music and dance activities.

Purple Class

In our purple class, we foster intellectual curiosity and social development through hands-on activities and meaningful discussions. We integrate Montessori methods to encourage self-control, problem-solving, and confidence-building. In our oral language activities, children engage in poems, rhymes, and stories to enhance communication skills, with reading instruction emphasizing print concepts, phonetic principles, and comprehension. Writing activities focus on connecting spoken and written language, while math instruction includes counting, sorting, pattern recognition, and basic measurement. Children can also explore science through observation and investigation, learning about their environment and basic scientific concepts. Social studies introduce children to their community, history, and social science skills.

While in the Blue Room, children engage in collaborative learning, discovering the power of teamwork and embracing their individual strengths and weaknesses.

In this room we provide a holistic educational experience, preparing children for the next stages of their academic journey while fostering a love for learning and exploration.

Kindergarten Class

School Age 6 and older

In our final room, the Kindergarten classroom, children engage in intellectually stimulating activities that encourage them to investigate their surroundings and suggest, plan, and implement projects. 

The curriculum covers various areas:

  • Oral Language: Activities focus on building vocabulary and phonological awareness, including participation in conversations and formulating investigative questions.

  • Reading: Students immerse in a print-rich environment, learning phonetic principles, comprehension, letter identification, and story-related skills through instruction, group activities, and reading materials.

  • Writing: Students make connections between oral and written language, learning to print letters and communicate ideas through drawings, letter approximations, and dictation.

  • Math: Emphasis is on number concepts, sorting, patterns, shapes, measurement, and fractions, with hands-on learning experiences and problem-solving.

  • Science: Students explore their world through observation, studying water, living things, Earth's relationship with the sun, and basic physics principles.

  • Social Studies: Introduction to community-focused topics, including history, citizenship, geography, history, and respect for rules and rights.

Throughout, problem-solving skills are integrated, fostering a holistic educational experience that prepares children for their academic journey while nurturing their curiosity and understanding of the world around them. 

All of what the children have learned with us up until this point has been preparing them for the transition into school. By the time they leave us, we aim to have left a lasting and positive change in their lives.

Merging Teaching and Childcare

We offer a variety of programs, including daycare for infants and toddlers, preschool, pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten.

We believe that it’s never too early to start learning and that it’s vital to always present opportunities for children to learn and grow as soon as they start at our center. 

By developing our programs with curriculum experts and childcare specialists, we’ve been able to hone in on what makes early education a success and created a learning program that allows our children to enter school seamlessly.
