Community Based Education/Training Services (CBETS)

Equipping preschool children to acquire the skills necessary to succeed in kindergarten.

At Rainbows United, we believe each child is a masterpiece, whether or not they perceive themselves that way. For children who have trouble holding a crayon, struggle to pay attention or have other challenges, their inner beauty may become overshadowed by apprehension--especially when they enter a school environment.

That’s where we can help. Through a contract with Wichita Public Schools we offer a bridge of learning, going beyond to give your child a little extra help. Careful brush strokes to reveal the masterpiece within. A great start in school can mean a great start in life.

CBETS, through Rainbows United, offers ideas, specific services and resources to support each child's education.
