A day @ Rainbow

Drop off and breakfast

Morning starts with our nursery staff settling children in so drop off is a crucial time for you to update us on whether your child has slept or whether they have woken up upset for any reason.

Morning Session and Snack

The morning session starts with registration time in small groups, during registration the children will talk about the day, month and weather etc. After registration the children can access lots of exciting resources through continuous provision indoors and out. A healthy nutritious snack is provided at around 10:00-10:30, with a choice of water and milk.


Lunch is served around 12:00. We place great importance in eating in ‘family’ groupings, talking about our meal, and making it a relaxing and enjoyable time for everybody.

Sleep time

We will always endeavour to enable your child to sleep and make a provision if needed as the emphasis is on school readiness.

Afternoon Session

Throughout the afternoon your child will enjoy a range of activities designed to enable them to play and explore, discover and grow, learn and understand through a variety of free play, Montessori teaching and garden play. Every activity will be tailored to their liking and meet with their educational needs.


At about 4.00pm the children sit down to tea which consists of a main course and a pudding.

Home time

When you arrive to take your child home, our nursery staff will be available to share any information about their day, pass on any important messages and to chat with you about what they are learning and how they are progressing, this is a great time to ask any questions you may have as a 1-1 option.
