"Designed to provide them with a structured platform..."

Rainbow children are aged between 3 to 5 years and it is our pre-school room where children will be invited to participate in activities which are designed to provide them with a structured platform to build upon when starting school.

The Rainbow nursery is divided into different areas in different open plan connecting rooms with their own computer and software for their age group.

The children are brought together every session for discussion about the weather and to greet each other with our special songs! Focused adult led activities will allow the children to work in small groups to focus on particular areas of learning such as exploring the properties of different objects and how much they weigh, activities and games that help children create rhyming strings, collaborative tasks e.g. story making through role play and much more.

The Rainbow team also recognise the importance of allowing the children to set their own pace for learning and encourage the children to think critically and to set out and complete their own learning challenges such as putting on their own coat and doing up a zip! Towards the end of the summer term we liaise with all the local schools that our children feed into and arrange for their teacher in reception to come and meet the children.

We also ensure a wide range of opportunities are available to our children to give a solid foundation from which to develop. As such we arrange educational visits and also arrange visitors to the nursery to discuss healthy food options, emergency first aid for the children so they know what to do an in emergency and how to call for help and even how to perform emergency CPR. The children also have use with direct guidance from our staff to a touch screen device with full security settings which is used to support children’s development through every area of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

"East Dereham Day Nursery are one of our feeder schools and truthfully are Superb! Transition with the nursery is brilliant, the information we receive as Early Years reception teachers is informative, detailed and realistic – it is evident that The East Dereham Day Nursery know their children as individuals. We are always welcome into the setting, to meet key workers, share each child’s development on Tapestry (the child’s online learning journey), talk about interests, worries … but ultimately to meet each new child in a setting they feel safe and comfortable in They even go the extra mile, by bringing in children or supporting parents in our ‘stay and play’ sessions in the summer term!" - Early Years Reception Teacher
