Rainbow's ethos is built around the Montessori Method of education and as such strongly advocates that children over the age of 3 years old attend a minimum of 5 sessions (am or pm) in order that a child can fully benefit from the environment in our nurseries and the morning and/or afternoon Montessori work cycle.
However, as members of the government's EEF scheme we can also offer access to the 15 hours of free entitlement only, offered within the scheme.
It should be noted, however, that the offer of places is only available at the following times.
These make up the 15 hours free entitlement and must be taken as a whole (we do not offer less than the 15 hours entitlement).
The nursery does not participate in the funding for 2 year old’s or the 30 hour funding scheme for 2 / 3 & 4 year olds.
Monday : 10:45am to 1:30pm
Tuesday: 11:15am to 1:30pm
Thursday: 10:30am to 1:45pm
Friday: 08:30am to 3:15pm
(These hours are re-assessed each term and are subject to change)
All places and sessions are subject to availability (including overall numbers and statutory staff/student ratios).
For parents claiming the free entitlement only, no fees are required in advance.
All applications for Free Entitlement only Places (FEOP) must be in writing.
