Welcome to Rainbow's Day Nursery!

We will be offering the free 30 hours funding from September 2017.

In our most recent inspection we were judged GOOD by OFSTED and we continually aim to improve our provision - some of the strengths outlined in the report are that "staff have  secure relationships with children. Their  good knowledge of children's interests and individual routines makes a positive contribution to children's emotional well-being" and "parents are overwhelmingly positive and full of praise for the staff team, in particular the welcoming atmosphere."     

Our staff are friendly, caring and passionate about childcare. We have a ‘settling in without tears’ process and a well established and effective key person system meaning your child will feel safe and cared for. We can visit you and your child at your home before settling in sessions so your child can meet their nursery teacher in familiar surroundings.  We nurture strong relationships with families and parental input is actively encouraged - children’s interests and developmental stage are used for effective individual planning, making sure the children progress throughout Rainbows. We also provide you with written information concerning your child’s next steps and activity ideas so you can continue the learning at home.

The owner/manager is a qualified teacher who, as well as caring for your child, will be active in promoting their development and education. Our care and educational philosophy is an eclectic mixture of traditional and modern methods with a substantial Montessori influence.

We offer the 15 hours funding for both 3 and 2 year olds and can be flexible with sessions if required and available. We might also be able to claim an extra £300 per year for your child to help with his or her learning and development - to check if you are eligible for the Early Years Pupil Premium please check here. We are open all year and admit children from 3 months to 5 years.

Rainbow's Day Nursery is located centrally next to the town centre, 5 minutes from the bus and train stations.

From September 2017 we will be offering 30 hours funding to check eligibility visit the Childcare Choices website
