Rainbow Explorers

From 29 months. We can cater for up to 26 children a day.
Our Rainbow pre-school is held in its own large purpose built unit (with separate entrance) attached to the main nursery with rear doors opening into one of our large gardens.

Within our Rainbow Explorers room children are provided with opportunities to develop and learn skills that fulfil their natural desires to explore and understand the world around them.

Furnishing and equipment have been thoughtfully chosen to create a high quality, age appropriate environment, allowing children to become absorbed in their own ideas and achieve their full potential

We believe that a child’s work is their play and therefore all our activities are fun, enjoyable and play-based.

Here are just a few of the wonderful activities we do…….

Mark making Junk modelling Story time
Nature and science Cooking Creative play
Sand and water play Painting Measuring

Rainbow Day Nursery is a friendly, family run nursery in Poole that was formed in 1985. Our aim is to provide the highest quality care within a loving family environment.


Our practitioners regularly participate in training courses to enhance their knowledge and skills to ensure that they are up to date with current best practices.


As a nursery we pride ourselves on our experienced long standing members of staff including our nursery manager, who has been part of the team for over 25 years.

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.
