Welcome to Rainbows Nursery School Elstead

Homepage ImageRainbows is an independently run nursery school in the heart of Elstead, for children aged between 3 months to five years old, offering a nurturing environment for your child to grow, learn, socialise and develop.

We lay the foundation for a love of learning with rich and wide reaching activities including , cooking, music and movement and messy play.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, which encourages the children to learn through play based activities. We focus on giving the children confidence with an emphasis on social and emotional development and independence, preparing them for their next step to full time school. All children in our care are valued as individuals.

Our bright and spacious premises, both indoors and outdoors, enable the children to have fun in a safe and stimulating environment. Read more
