Gail Johnson, founder of Richmond-based Rainbow Station, has been named Entrepreneur of the Year by the Richmond Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners.
Rainbow Station, a private school system franchise, serves children between the ages of newborn to 14. It offers extended day nursery school and preschool programming with after-school and summer camp programs. The company has nine locations in the U. S., with four of the campuses located in the Richmond area. One of the school’s unique features is an on-site infirmary located in a separate building on the campus, which is attended by a full-time pediatric nurse so that parents have backup care when their child is ill.
