Welcome to PT!
It depends a lot on the individual bunny, and breed can play a roll in it too. Since you have little kids, I would recommend adopting a larger breed rabbit if you have the space. New Zelands, Flemmish giants, Californians, ect. are all big, generally calm and tolerant rabbits. They would be too big for a little kid to pick up or accidentally hurt, and they would probably do a lot better in your situation than a dwarf/smaller breed of rabbit would since they tend to be more nervous.
Talk to the people at the rescue, and see if they have any rabbits that might have been around younger children so they might adjust a little easier than a rabbit who wouldn't be used to them. Always have a quiet room available, and keep your new bun in that room for the first week or so after you adopt them, so they won't be too overwhelmed.

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
