  • "Rainbow Montessori School has been like an extended family to my son Oscar during the most difficult time a child could go through; that of losing a parent. My late husband, Martin Scheller, felt secure in the fact that his son's talents and emotional needs would be nurtured at Rainbow, indeed they have been!"
    by Rebecca Scheller

  • "I was a pupil at Rainbow Montessori from when it was first established in 1982 when I was two and a half years old until the age of seven. I am now twenty-one years of age and I am amazed and delighted at how many wonderful ways Rainbow has effected my life both then and now."
