Admissions

We aim to make Rainbows Nursery School accessible and inclusive to every child in the local community.

We take children from the age of 3 months.

We offer children a minimum of two sessions each week which can be increased as and when it is appropriate for each individual child and their family, and when spaces are available.

We invite you to come and look around the Nursery at any time, and new children are always invited to come for one or two trial mornings with their parent or carer to familiarise themselves with the staff, the building and the other children.
