An Avenues nursery which has been nurturing children for 30 years has opened a new pre-school in a church hall.
Rainbows Nursery already has a centre in Salisbury Street, west Hull, but a second pre-school setting at St Ninian’s Hall in Chanterlands Avenue is now open and accepting applications.
The site, which used to be home to Victoria Play Pen Pre-School until its closure earlier this year, has undergone a huge makeover and can look after up to 36 youngsters.
Jenny Jenkinson is chief officer of Hull Community and Voluntary Services (CVS) who acquired Rainbow Nursery in 2012 to save it from going out of business. She is confident the new pre-school, which will operate during term-time, can be a success and cater for children in the community.
Mrs Jenkinson said:
After procuring the new hall, work began to modernise the premises and a number of extensive changes have been made to “bring it up to standard”
Explaining the layout of the new look pre-school, Mrs Jenkinson said:
Shelley Hunt has been promoted from deputy manager of Rainbow Nursery to become the manager of the new pre-school.
She cannot wait for the new term to start and she wants as many parents as possible to get their little ones signed up.
Mrs Hunt said:
The new pre-school will be operating during term time between 8am and 4pm Monday to Friday.
It can cater for children aged between three and five with fully funded places are available to children aged three and four.
Anyone who requires more information should contact Rainbow Nursery on 01482 448764.
