About Our School

About Our School

End of the Rainbow is locally owned and operated. Since 1986, End of the Rainbow has provided Columbia area families with a high quality learning and development program. Owner and Director Nikki Reynolds joined us in 2000, and Assistant Director Ginger Otto has been with the center since 1997. The center is licensed by the State of Missouri Bureau of Child Care and provides services to children ages 6 weeks through 12 years of age. Hours of operation are 6:45-5:45 Monday through Friday.

We are an extension of family, developing a partnership where sharing support, ideas and genuine love for children is of the utmost importance.
