Our Nursery Nurses

We employ 24 multi-skilled practitioners qualified from level 3 to degree status (from May 2013). Our practitioners are very experienced to ensure planned activities are tailored to meet your children’s individual needs and meeting their next steps. We support your children through a fun and learning environment including singing, baking and outside excursions.

All staff working at Rainbow Nursery are CRB checked and are either CACHE or NVQ level 2/3 trained. Our staffs undergo regular training and are kept informed of all ongoing changes in the Child Care Sector. Currently five practitioners are undergoing further qualification and completed their Foundation Degree in Childcare and Education. Three are completing the BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Education and care.

As set by the National Standards for Day Care, we adhere to ration of adults to children ratio at all times:

  • 0-2 years: 1 adult to 3 children
  • 2-3 years: 1 adult to 4 children
  • 3-5 years: 1 adult to 8 children (nursery nurse)/1 adult to 13 children (teacher)
