Our History

Main Location: Since 1986, End of the Rainbow has provided Columbia area families with a high-quality learning and development program. The center began as a church program providing care for just 8-10 children.


Current owner, Shane Wyatt, purchased the center on 12/31/2020 from former owners Nikki and Jared Reynolds. Shane began working at the center in 2011 and was the Director from 2016-2020. Prior to Shane working at EOR, Nikki had expanded the center and was licensed to care for over 120 children. Nikki had added proximity locks, cameras in each room, hallways and parking lots, along with a fresh air return system. The center now consists of three Infant rooms, three Toddler rooms, one Two year old room, two Preschool rooms, and one PreK room. 


Southwest Location:


In 2018 End of the Rainbow was able to expand into a second location. Nikki and Jared partnered with Jody and Tara Martin for this new venture. Tara is the Director of the Southwest location. Her background in Human Development & Family Studies and Masters degree in Early Childhood Education make her the perfect fit. Custom construction of the new center was completed in September and like the main center, the Southwest location provides care to children from ages 6 weeks through 12 years of age.
