Baby Rainbow consists of two play rooms, a sleep room, art/dining room, bathroom, two change rooms, office, kitchen and an outdoor play area with safety matting and a variety of play equipment.
Learning & Development
Treasure Baskets and Heuristic Play experiences are provided in both play rooms to support the children’s natural curiosity to learn.
The nursery has a very cosy and colourful baby room with an adjoining change room. Activities in the baby room include activity centres, stories, music activities, sensory play, crafts, baking, outdoor play and outings. These activities encourage natural all-round development.
This room is warm and cheerful and as the children become more independent they will progress to this room.
In this room we have a house corner with dress ups, puzzles, construction play, music activities, story corner and small world area.
Our Art Room joins onto the Toddler Room where each day the children participate in creative fun activities such as painting, baking, gluing and sensory play.
