Rainbow Pre-School was established in 1974, originally located in the Bull Croft Park where it operated for 46 years. In March 2020 Rainbow relocated to Millington Road in Wallingford. This is a newly re-furbished and modern setting attached to a Care Home called Westgate House. Currently Rainbow Pre-School is only the second setting attached to a Care Home in the UK. A great deal of research has been made regarding how beneficial this type of partnership is and something that other settings are hoping to achieve.

Our team of staff are very experienced, committed and dedicated to supporting children and their families. It is important to us that your child is happy, secure and makes good progress in their time at Rainbow. We have strong links with the local community, including the local Schools and the Family Centre. We work closely with other Early Years practitioners, Health Visitors, Social Workers and Advisors from Oxfordshire Early Years Team. We have built a good relationship with these professionals and are well respected by them.

Our most recent Ofsted inspection, in which we were graded as Good, was carried out in February 2019. You can look at the report, in more detail, on the Ofsted Report website: www.ofsted.gov.uk

Safeguarding

Our setting works with children, parents and the community to ensure the rights and safety of children and to give them the very best start in life. All staff have attended training about Safeguarding Children.

Valuing diversity and promoting equality

Our setting is committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all children and families.

tableSpecial Educational needs

We provide an environment in which all children, including those with special educational needs, are supported to reach their full potential. We have an experienced SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) who ensures our provision meets the needs of each individual child.

Chairperson: Alice Walton
