Pre School 3 - 5 Years
The Pre School room caters for the 3 to 5 years age group. The ratio for this age group is 8 children to 1 member of staff. All staff are a minimum of NVQ level 3 trained and all have paediatric first aid certificates. All staff have enhanced CRB checks.
All children of 3 years of age and above are eligible for an Education grant of 15 hours per week towards their Nursery sessions, this will start on the term after their 3rd birthday. If you require extra sessions these will have to be put in writing and confirmed with the manager, whilst we would like to accommodate these, we would like to remind you that this is not always possible due to the Nursery having available places.
Your child will be allocated a Key Worker the same system as is in the Nursery. If your child is moving up from the Nursery a handover of Key Workers will take place, your child's old Key Worker will share information with the new Key Worker and pass on your child's learning journal to continue.
We welcome parents' input to learning journals and they are available for you to view at any time. If you would like to take them home and share them with your family please ask a member of staff to sign them out as they are a working document so we can record the progress of your child. Learning journals will be passed to you when your child leaves Rainbow.
