Caring & Learning at Rainbows                                        

.
Rainbows provide a stimulating, inspirational and caring environment for your little ones to learn, grow and develop every day.
 
During your child’s time at Rainbows they will take part in a wide range of activities which cover all areas of learning: personal, social and emotional development, communication language and literacy, problem solving, reasoning and numeracy, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical development and creative development.
 

As a fully qualified teacher Jo understands that a child’s learning and development occurs as a result of a complex interaction between your little one and their experiences. This includes the relationships they build with the people around them and their environment. That is why at Rainbows your child will be a part of a caring and loving environment where they will feel safe to play, explore and learn in a variety of different ways. We also offer opportunities and experiences for children to take part in active learning and creativity, along with being able to think critically about the world around them. At Rainbows we understand that these are characteristics of effective learning that directly relate to early childhood development and the wellbeing of the individual child. We feel that it is important that your little one is able to investigate their environment in a safe and accommodating way to provide them the best possible start to their education.
