Yolanda Castillo

“I have always loved working with children, so I decided that Rainbows would be the right place for me. Working at Rainbows has given me a better understanding of individuals with special needs.”

Yolanda Castillo has been working at Rainbows’ Kids’ Point since 2000. She currently works as a Para in Classroom 4, assisting the toddler-aged children with their everyday needs. “My favorite part of the day is having fun with children and making them feel safe and loved,“ she said.

Working at Rainbows has allowed Yolanda flexibility to spend quality time with her husband and four children.

In her spare time she enjoys cooking, running around her neighborhood, going to church and most of all, watching her kids play soccer on the weekends. Yolanda is currently taking Early Childhood classes to attain her CDA credential.
