Welcome to our pre-school page. We will be posting updates and important information here for parents to access at any time.
When possible we will add photos of activities and ideas for you to do at home.
We will not be sending newsletters home in order to support our Eco-friendly initiative which will reduce the amount of ink and paper that we use at the nursery.
Here are some of the skills information that was available at our last parents evening. These are areas that you can help with at home
This is only a guide and all children master these skills at different times. They also do not need to complete them all before leaving us at Rainbow for school so do not panic!
It is a guide to work towards and the children will master each skill as and when they are ready.

Pre-school trip (14th May 2019)
Well the children had amazing weather for their trip again this year!
The bus trip was lots of fun (although Mandy was not so keen!!)
All the children had a great time at Ark Wildlife Park and they have been telling all the staff about their adventures!
We loved the dinosaur weeks so we have kept the photos here for a few more sessions!
Check out these indoor and outdoor displays for the children.
Please can we remind all parents that we do operate a uniform policy in our pre-school room.
The uniform can be either purchased from the nursery - we have new and 2nd hand available.
You can also purchase items without the logo from any uniform stockists. They will need a royal blue polo shirt and a red jumper/cardigan.
We implement a uniform policy as this saves the children's own clothes from the messy play but also prepares them for school life. The children enjoy seeing each other in the same uniform and can sometimes become upset if they look different from their friends.
A copy of the policy can be downloaded here
When its Hot!
Sun hats, Sun Cream and Wellies!
Please can all children have a sun hat, sun ceam and they still need wellies. The children do access the outside area in all weathers and although it may only be for a short time, they will go outside everyday.
The nursery has a limited number of spare sun hats & wellies but not in all sizes.
The children are all aware of the outside routine and can become upset when they do not have their own belongings like their friends.
When its chilly!
Coats, Wellies, Hats & Gloves
Please can all children have a warm coat, wellies, hat & gloves. The children do access the outside area in all weathers and although it may only be for a short time, they will go outside everyday.
The nursery do not hold spares of coats, hats and gloves - we do have a limited number of spare wellies but not in all sizes.
The children are all aware of the outside routine and can become upset when they do not have their own wellies, hats or gloves like their friends.
