Our playgroup has been operating since 1974 and we aim to provide a happy and playful environment for our children so they can develop the necessary social, creative and academic skills required of them by the time they start school. Our aim is to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment, to work within a framework which ensures equality of opportunity for all children and families.
We offer your child a specially tailored curriculum to approved learning outcomes. Individual care and attention are made possible by a high ratio of adults to children. Fun and friendship with children and other adults. The support of a personal keyworker. Opportunities for you and your family to be directly involved in the activities of the group and in your own child's progress.
We have excellent indoor facilities as well as our own fully enclosed private garden for outdoor fun and activities. We have P.E. sessions and have close links with Colden Common Primary School and use the school's music room on the first Wednesday of each month.
Please call on 01962 715401 (term-time only) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. We look forward to meeting you soon.
Rainbow Preschool – Ofsted number: 110010
We are based in the Methodist Hall in Spring Lane, Colden Common SO21 1SB and have sole use of the building Monday – Friday, term time. Rainbows is open from 8.30am until 3pm (flexible start / finish times available) and we welcome children from 2years 6months.
We offer the Government Funding scheme for 2, 3 and 4 years olds with no additional charges (unless you exceed the 15 or 30hour entitlement then each additional hour will be charged at £5).
We offer our children a secure, happy, and stimulating environment in a variety of different rooms, plus our garden. We have a very experienced team of staff who are passionate about our continuous provision and plan our play spaces to ensure all the children’s different needs and learning styles are catered for. We have a keyworker system in operation for each child and we also have a Special Needs Co-ordinator. We also have a daily ‘chatterbox time’ for those children who need support with their speech and language. We work very closely with Colden Common Primary School and have regular visits to the school to use their facilities.
School’s Out (based at the Community Centre) offer the children from Rainbows a breakfast and afterschool club, providing childcare both sides of our opening hours which is ideal for working parents.
If you’re looking for an ‘Ofsted Outstanding’ preschool (2015 and 2020) that feels as close to family as it can be, please get in touch. You are very welcome to visit, and we know once you meet us, you’ll want to stay!
