Parents Info

  • Rainbow Pre-school is a registered charity (1054083) and is managed by a Committee of parent volunteers. The Committee members are vital to the running of the Pre-school and without the support of parent Committee members there would be no Pre-school.
  • Settling your child into Pre-school

  • Pre-school will probably be a completely different experience for your child and we do our best to make the transition an easy one. Most children settle in quickly but do not worry if yours does not – talk to us so we can agree on the best approach for you and your child. We also welcome any information you are able to give on your child’s development and will note any concerns you may have and agree action plans where appropriate.

    Our keyworker system gives each member of staff particular responsibility for a few children and means that each child has a special adult to relate to. This ensures that all children are supported in reaching their full potential and we also have specially trained staff to cater for Special Educational Needs children, so if your child has any Special Educational Needs then please speak to the Supervisor.

    At each session we always welcome the involvement of parents and you are invited to join us to play with the children, look out for our “stay and play” rota in the foyer

  • How you can support Rainbow

  • All parents are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting usually held in October and also the Committee Meetings that are held at regular intervals throughout the year.

    The overheads and other running costs of the Pre-school are met by the fees but to help pay for new equipment, toys, arts & crafts etc. we rely heavily on fund-raising. We hold various fund raising events throughout the year such as our Christmas Concert and Fayre as well sending home various brochures for you to look at and which pay Rainbow a commission on any orders you place.

    Any help or donations that our parents can give us are always very gratefully received so if you would like to be involved or are interested in joining the Committee please speak to a member of staff. Everyone is always very welcome.

    When you shop on the internet, why don’t you use – they offer access to many of the UK’s leading retailers, who by using them will pay a commission to Rainbow Pre-school and the good thing about it is, that it doesn’t cost you anything extra to shop and you still shop direct with the retailer. All you need to do is log on to the site at register and start shopping. You will be raising funds whilst shopping as you would anyway!

    There is also, use this each and every time you search online and they will donate 50% of the fees paid by their advertising sponsors to Rainbow.
