About Us

Located in the Avenues area of Hull, Rainbow Nursery and Rainbow Preschool offers a friendly, caring and safe learning environment for children aged 6 weeks to 5 year olds. Rainbow Nursery is situated in a large Victorian house in this leafy conservation area and Rainbow Preschool is based at St Ninians Church Hall on Chanterlands Avenue. Both provide a homely and caring atmosphere where children feel happy and relaxed.

We have a team that comprises of long serving, knowledgeable and experienced staff who have a passion to go the extra mile to make your child’s time a happy and fulfilling experience. Our practitioners specialise in specific areas of interest and like to involve the children in a variety of activities some of which include cookery, music, outside activities and excursions.

We follow the governments Early Years Foundation Stage framework with its 7 areas of learning, and we are able to support children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, and those who speak English as an additional language.

Our nursery and preschool pride ourselves on the highly positive relationships we develop with parents. We recognise that successful liaison with parents contributes to improvements in children’s achievement, well-being and development and we place great value in ensuring that parents develop a sense of belonging in the Nursery and Preschool, and have a say in the care and well-being of their children.

Operating a Key person system, each practitioner has a group of children for whom she/he is particularly responsible for. Your child’s key person will work alongside you to ensure that what the nursery provides is right for your child’s particular needs and interests.

When your child first starts with us, their key person will help your child to settle in, and throughout your child’s time at the nursery and preschool the key person will help them to benefit from the activities we offer. Key persons also undertake detailed on-going observation and assessment to provide a clear insight your child’s progress and achievements, and parents are encouraged to take their child’s progress file home to read and add any comments at their leisure.

We know how important it is to keep parents up to date with developments at our nursery and preschool, and so regular information is communicated through our termly newsletter, website, Facebook pages as well as notice board announcements and daily key person contact.

Rainbow Nursery and Rainbow Preschool aim to provide a safe, stimulating environment where all children and adults should feel a valued part of the nursery and are treated fairly. Our policies help us to achieve this. Policies are displayed in the entrance of the nursery, or you can obtain a copy by requesting from the Nursery Manager or by downloading them from this website.


“Great little nursery, my daughter loves going, and often hates leaving! Nursery staff encourage her development and she has made some great attachments to workers.”

“Absolutely fantastic preschool. My daughter loves going every day and the staff have been amazing with her medical needs. We were so worried before Ella started attending due to her multiple allergies and other health issues but the staff have gone above and beyond to include her in all activities and making the environment as safe as possible for her.”
