Rainbow Pre-school is a playgroup for three and four year olds, located in the grounds of Great and Little Shelford Primary School. We aim to provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment for your child. We believe that early childhood is a vital phase of development and our emphasis is very much on learning through play. Rainbow staff are friendly, approachable and dedicated. All are trained and experienced in nursery education or are working towards a suitable qualification. We aim to maintain a high ratio of staff to children: one adult to six children for over threes and ratio of one to four for under threes. This ensures attention to the needs and development of each child. All staff are subject to the relevant security checks. Research shows that children learn better when their parents are involved and we encourage parental participation at every turn.
