Rainbow One

We are based on a school site, in the heart of Shirley. Our staff have a wealth of experience and knowledge in early years. We work closely with Wordsworth Primary School, joining in with celebrations, supporting transitions for those going to school and sharing ideas and knowledge in relation to the Early Years Foundation Stage.

OFSTED REPORT
DAILY ROUTINE

We are fortunate enough to have 2 lovely outside areas of which children have access to on a daily basis and are able to use the school field on occasions. We have connections with the local community including the library, emergency services and health visitors.
