Rainbow Bright Day Care & Nursery School

Day nursery
Coronavirus Support

We have remained open during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We have a Covid-19 Risk Assessment in place, we are able to maintain small group sizes and have a thorough cleaning routine in place for the premises and equipment.  All staff are wearing face shields, currently we are not inviting parents into nursery but we are able to offer feedback or meetings in our large garden areas.

We have taken on a Family Support Practitioner, who is at nursery 4 days each week.  Julie is working to support all of the children and families regarding challenges they may be facing due to Covid.  This includes delivering a program of activities to promote resilience, wellbeing and ensuring school readiness upon leaving us to start primary school.

Fantastic nursery
Both of my children have attended Rainbow bright since around 9 months old, and we could not have chosen a more caring and supportive environment for them to be looked after whilst we work. Both of them have flourished in the setting which offers stimulation, excitement, but also care and calm of equal measure. The staff are incredibly friendly, and entirely trustworthy. Next year, my eldest child will leave for school, and I know that she will be ready, thanks to  the preparation and support given at Rainbow bright. I highly recommend Rainbow bright to anyone who is considering a nursery setting for their child. 
Highly Recommended!!
My son has attended here from the baby room all the way through to a school leaver. My little boy has developed really well here as they tailor the activies towards the childs needs and interests.  They understand that every child is different yet still cater for everyone through picking up on what the child is interested in which in turn makes them interested to learn.  My son's key worker (and to be fair all the staff memebers) spend time to 'get to know' all the childrens interests  and development needs and work really closly with me to ensure we are both focusing on the same things to ensure consistancy and a positive link/bond between nursery and home which I think is extreamly important.  They ALWAYS have time to discuss how my childs day has been and gives a balanced view on how he has been and what they have been doing.  My little boy runs into nursery in the morning really happy to be there and is always happy and smiling telling me all about his days adventures when he leaves .. what more can i ask for?! I can not recommend this nursery more highly.
