Rainbows Nursery

🌈Welcome to Rainbows Nursery!🌈

We are a happy, 68 place Nursery for 2-4 year old children.  Our EYFS is well resourced and benefits from a large, fenced outdoor space as well as spacious indoor learning areas.  We are very proud of our caring and nurturing environment. Mrs White is our EYFS lead  and Reception Teacher, alongside her in Reception is Mrs Elrick. In Nursery We have Mrs Robson and Miss Hunter who work in the 3-4 year old room and Mrs Jones and Miss Foreman who work in the 2 year old room. Mrs McCamley also supports in EYFS

In Nursery and Reception we follow the Early Years Adopters Framework which was published in September 2021.  The Framework specifies the requirement for learning and development in Early Years and provides specific areas for learning which we cover as part of our curriculum.

These areas are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Art and Design
