Rainbow Pre-School

Rainbow Pre-school opened in September 1983. It is a community pre-school serving the villages of Great and Little Shelford in South Cambridgeshire.

We welcome children aged from 2 to 4 years old into our safe, caring and fun environment where we promote learning through play.

At Rainbow, we believe that early childhood is a vital phase of development and should be valued in its own right. We believe that:
• Children deserve the opportunity to grow and learn through their play, in a safe environment where they feel valued and respected.
• Children deserve to be challenged and stimulated, and to have time to develop their curiosity, creativity, imagination, independence and love of learning.
• Each child deserves to play and learn with adults who are sensitive to their individual needs and who work in partnership with their family.

We are proud of our high ratio of adults to children, which ensures individual attention to the needs and development of each child.

Rainbow is a charity managed by a committee of volunteers from our parent body, with close ties to the neighbouring primary school. Rainbow is a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance and is a non-profit making registered charity.
