Buds & Blossoms Room

From 20 months. We can cater for up to 18 children a day. The Buds and Blossoms room is situated on the ground floor at the rear of the nursery. Within the Buds and Blossoms room the children enjoy a variety of activities and experiences designed to develop their independence, imagination, creative and social skills.

Toys and equipment are displayed at child level so that they are accessible for all children at all times. This enables children to make their own choices and decisions and enhance their quality of play.

We also promote a ‘trial and error’ environment which encourages children to solve problems for themselves. By setting children achievable problems and goals, they can begin to feel pride within themselves and thrive for further development.

Buds and Blossoms operate a free-flow system and within their daily routine have access to the sensory room and rear gardens.

Play Areas

At Rainbow we offer a range of excellent facilities where ideas can be explored and experiences shaped. These specialized areas are available to the children on a daily basis so that your child will be involved in a whole spectrum of play and enjoyment.


At Rainbow each of our children are individual and unique. To ensure your child’s needs are enhanced and nurtured, each child has their own key person who will identify, support and guide them through their early years at Rainbow.


Our nursery provides quality care with the benefit of experienced practitioners who support and enhance this play to create an enriched, stimulating and resourceful learning environment.
