This room caters for children from 6 weeks to 24 months old. A separate sleep area and a separate changing area. Breast feeding is not discouraged and parents wishing to do so can make further arrangements with the nursery manager.
Our experienced, qualified staff ensure that the highest standards of care and safety are vigorously maintained whilst adapting to the individual routines of each baby as required by the parents. Our staff ensure that each baby is given the care and attention it needs that will encourage the early development stages, such as learning to sit, crawl, stand and talk.

Enjoying early games such as peek-a-boo, clapping and finding hidden objects will always be part of your child's daily play. There will also be plenty of opportunities for one to one interaction with staff and other children.

Outdoor Play Environment
Located at the rear of the premises is a secure outdoor play environment. This area is designed to accommodate play activities suitable for all ages of children, providing a suitable range of stimulating play equipment. The play area offers a grassed area, hard surface area and a sheltered area.
Rainbow Hill takes security very seriously, the main entrance to the nursery remains locked at all times. Some internal doors also have security locks and entrance cannot be gained unless accompanied by a member of staff. We ask all parents to refrain from letting people into the nursery who they are not familiar with and ensure that doors are closed firmly behind them.
There are CCTV cameras in operation throughout the nursery to provide parents with "peace of mind" that there child is safe and secure. These security measures are taken to ensure the nursery remains secure from unwanted visitors.
Any visitors must fill in the "visitor's book" on arrival and departure and will be supervised throughout their visit.
