What happens in the KidooLand Playgroup

Dear parents,

My name is Nicola & I have been running the rainbow's playgroup since September 2011. I 'm a qualified nursery nurse with over 20 years of experience in working with the early years. I still enjoy working, caring & encouraging children to reach their full potential just as I did when I was newly qualified.

Here at The Rainbows International Playgroup we understand that your child is very precious & that you want the best start in life, so much so that I have had my Son attend for 2 years. I wanted him to benefit from our small groups, learn English & French, be in a caring, friendly & stimulating environment where he could feel safe, secure & inspired which would prepare him for school & teach him basic life skills.

We work closely with Early Years Foundation Skills programme (EYFS), which is a play based curriculum for children aged 0-5 years permitting children to explore & learn in a safe, secure yet challenging environment .

The EYFS Framework explains how and what your child will be learning to support their healthy development.

Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development. Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:

• Communication and language;

• Physical development; and

Personal, social and emotional development

These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.

As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:

• Literacy;

• Mathematics;

• Understanding the world; and

- Expressive arts and design

We at Rainbow's playgroup deliver a high quality & unique service. Not only can you choose which language you would like your child to learn (from English or French) but also group size is maximum 6 children (ratio 2:6) so our warm & caring staff give your child/ren the attention they deserve.
