Making Rainbows instructor Tiffany Stuart got her start in 2006 and hasn’t looked back since. She is too busy providing the children she teaches with the building blocks they will need for a successful future. Stuart was drawn to ROC because of a nephew who was a child being served locally. She completed college and received her CDA (Child Development Associate) credential in Early Child Care and has been in the classroom since.

“It’s very rewarding work,” says Stuart. “Some of the children come in and some can’t talk or walk and we help them communicate with others and to share. We don’t only build a relationship with the children, but also with the parents. We are like a team working together.

“We are just like a big family here. If I have a problem, some of the other teachers will give me information that will help do something in a different way. And I do the same for them if I see they are having a problem. We are a team and we try to help each other out.

“I see myself doing this for a long time. I started with the youth in my church and I’m just a “children” person. So, I enjoy being with them every day.”
