Rainbow Nursery Registration and Policy Information

Registration and Admission Information

Click here to view our fee structure.

Fees are payable in full, on the first day of a new term.

When children join us at Rainbow, we expect them to remain with us until the natural transition stage to Reception at a local school. Should your circumstances change, a whole academic term’s notice of intention to remove a child from RAINBOW is required in writing before the first day of term. Otherwise a full term’s fee will be due, regardless of your child attending Rainbow. To clarify, notice is required on the 1st September to leave at the end of December, 1st January to leave at the end of March and 1st April to leave at the end of July. Children leaving for Reception do not need to give written of notice.

We accept payment by bank transfer or through childcare voucher schemes.

Regarding childcare vouchers, please ensure that sufficient funds are in place to pay for the term in advance. Please contact the office info@rainbownurseryschools.org.uk for our company registration details.

Our childcare voucher codes can be found here.

All children are placed onto a waiting list. Children on the waiting list are taken in strict rotation with the exception of siblings who are given priority. Places are confirmed two terms in advance when a deposit of £500 is required, which is deductible from their first term’s fee and is non-refundable.

Once a child has a confirmed place, a settling-in process begins. The term before the child is due to start, they are asked to spend a morning/afternoon with their parent/carer, with us, to get to know our routine and staff. They are also invited to attend our end of term activity.

Once they start Rainbow, which may be a staggered start, parents are encouraged to bring their child into the group and settle them at an activity with a member of staff. Once settled they inform their offspring that they will go. Depending on individual children, staff might ask a parent to collect earlier than 12.30pm or 3.30pm for several days.

Each child is treated as an individual, therefore, no formal settling-in process is adhered to. Parents who are anxious about their child are reassured by staff and given information about their child’s activities and welfare whilst in the group. We do appreciate that not all children are completely toilet trained, and are happy to discuss your child’s needs individually. However, in extreme circumstances a parent may be called to assist a child who maybe in distress.
