Little Rainbows Day Nursery was created 11 years ago for my youngest daughter Grace, as a place where I could feel safe in the knowledge that she and other children would be cherished as individuals, well looked after, and would learn social, emotional and academic skills through play. This year(2018) has been an incredible time for us and has seen us gain OUTSTANDING with OFSTED AND receive a national champions award through the National Day Nursery Association for our dedication for children and families with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
Our latest OFSTED report in February 2018 set us as “OUTSTANDING” in every area and with the new regulations becoming tougher each year we are proud to receive accolades such as
