Review: I was very confident when sending my second child to Rainbows as I knew he was going into a warm, caring environment where he would be treated as an individual with his own set of specific needs. There have been many changes to Rainbows over the last few years to reflect the needs of our community as a whole but parents have been consulted every step of the way and their view is taken into account.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Review: Brilliant nursery, friendly staff, my child learns a lot from Rainbows. She's very happy there, has lots of fun and is well looked after. There's lots for the children to do there, both indoors and outside, which means they don't get bored and they get plenty of fresh air. I would highly recommend this nursery with their love of children and the high standard of caring they have for them.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Review: We cannot recommend Rainbows Nursery enough. Our little 16 months old loves it there and it is a pleasure to see how much she learns at Rainbows each day and how excited she is to show us when she gets home. Some of the main benefits that Rainbows offer for us is that it is local and we like to support local but mostly it is the team at Rainbows. They are fantastic, they are engaged and come across as genuinely interested in the children and their learning and experience. Rainbows are very flexible and are not too rigidly structured which really suits our little one. We especially love that it is a small nursery, not one of those with hundreds of kids where your child is just a number and structure has to be rigid in order to cater for all the kids. Each of the team members knows our little one so well as well as her likes and dislikes. The village hall offers lots of indoor space for running around and outdoor space for days with better weather.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Rainbows is an exceptional nursery school, and our 3yr-old son loves going there. Since he started his character has become much more confident and he has become increasingly interested in new activities and learning. The manager and her lovely team have built a great rapport with him and are terrific in varying the pace between one-on-one learning and attention and stepping back and letting him lose himself in messy or creative play. Because of the amount of space in the village hall, all the children are free to play in different areas without crowding each other, and a number of different 'zones' are set-up daily. These rotate between all sorts of different activities including puzzles, cars, messy play, dressing up, reading, nature tables, etc. From our experience with previous nurseries, this one honestly stands head and shoulders above others in helping little souls develop in a happy and encouraging environment. I recommend Rainbows to all parents who are looking for great day care.

Rainbows Nursery is an excellent nursery school and we are extremely happy we chose it. Our daughter has grown in confidence since starting here and educationally it is exceptional. The manager and her team are professional and fully focussed on providing the best care and support for each individual child. The village hall setting provides lots of space for the children and there is a playground too. It really feels that Rainbows Nursery is part of the community and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
