Your child's first day
Your child is able to enrol as a ‘pre-schooler’ from the age of 2 years. We appreciate that some children will settle in to pre-school more easily than others and as such each child is assigned a Key Worker staff member to help them settle into life at Rainbow and to find new friends. We want your child to feel happy and safe at Rainbow and to achieve this we will work with you and your child to decide how we can help your child to settle into pre-school, which is supported by our ‘ Settling in Policy’.
Parents/carers are welcome to meet the staff at Rainbow for an informal chat in advance of registering their child with us. This enables us to talk through the application form as well as show parents/carers around the setting so that you can see how we operate, enabling you to ask any questions. Following on from the informal chat we can then offer further sessions for you as parents/carers to bring your child into the pre-school to explore our activities and environment during sessions. This is especially helpful if you have not been able to come to our Stay and Play sessions.
