Meet Our Staff

My name is Olive Sheehan

I am the mother of two, Owner/Educator at Over the Rainbow Family Childcare. After emigrating to Boston from Ireland, I worked as a Nanny for a number of years. With the guidance of a friend, I opened my childcare in 1993. 


Down through the years, I have earned many credentials in Early Education including a degree in E.C.E and CDA.


I continue to keep myself educated on the new and best practices to provide the best quality childcare.


Mission Statement 


I believe that children learn best through play both structured and un-structured. Giving each child the opportunity to develop social. emotional. cognitive and physical skills through fun learning activities. Each child is unique, and I give them the opportunity to develop at their own pace. It is so important to me that families feel happy and comfortable leaving their children with me on a daily basis. I do my utmost best to live up to their expectations.

“When you pay for childcare, especially for a newborn, you are paying for trust. If you want to spend your days knowing that your child is being loved and cared for, Over the Rainbow provides that."

Caitlin White

"My family is forever grateful that we found Olive.... I know when I leave my boys at daycare, even when I am not with them, their day will be filled with love and hugs."

Natalia Crosby

Our family has had the pleasure of participating in Olive's Childcare for almost three years. Olive is a tenured professional that treats our children as if they were her own. Olive provides the upmost care and attention. She has always exceeded my expectations.
