Rainbow Hill House Childcare was created by husband and wife, Nej and Linda Jemal 22 years ago when they could not find the ‘home from home’ environment they were looking for, for their own children.


Rainbow Hill House started as a small childminding business in Linda and Nej’s own home but grew rapidly and in 2016 it was decided to move the setting into a larger premises in Bounds Green.


Since then, the nursery has proven to be very popular but continues to blossom and develop even further.


Within our nursery we have 4 dedicated rooms as well as a very uniquie soft play area - click the link for more information and go inside our setting.



THE WAY WE WORK


We take children on board from 3 months onwards and nurture them in a fun-filled learning environment where they are able to reach their full potential to gain the best possible start in life.


We put great emphasis on developing the children's confidence, self-esteem and independence from the beginning of the settling in period by ensuring the children feel safe and secure when attending nursery. We have an excellent and very effective key-person system in place which supports each child’s holistic development and enables children to explore their surroundings with confidence.


We believe that the views of the children are extremely important and therefore, one of the ways we respond to this is by putting great emphasis on following each individual child’s interests when planning or observing their development. Our theme of the week is also chosen by considering the interests of the children (as well as celebrations of various cultures) and each day at nursery, the children are given the opportunity to participate in various exciting activities.

THE HISTORY OF RAINBOW HILL HOUSE NURSERY

ABOUT

A little bit about who we are


To ensure we meet the needs of all dietary requirements; we are a pescetarian nursery, meaning the children are served fish, as well as 'quorn' which is a substitute for meat.


We have two fully qualified cooks/housekeepers on site who are dedicated to providing the children with two hot freshly prepared home cooked meals per day (for example, quorn based shepherd’s pie and vegetable and sweet potato curry with brown rice etc.), as well as breakfast and nutritious snacks which enables the children to choose from a vast range of fruit and vegetables. Our menus are rotated every three weeks, and are changed every season.

We put great emphasis on the outdoors, learning about the world around us and our local community by taking the children on regular trips to a number of places such as the library, park, garden centre, local farms and woods using public transport.


At Rainbow Hill House Nursery we go beyond the EYFS curriculum by offering extra-curricular activities which vary from month to month and are delivered by suitable qualified professionals.. An example of some of our extra-curricular activities include; Spanish, Baby Ballet, Children’s Yoga and visits from companies who teach the children about animals, such as small mammals, reptiles etc.


We also regularly invite local community services, such as the police, ambulance service, dentists to visit the nursery and talk to the children about various subjects.


We are proud to be part of the ‘TFL Stars’ which is an accreditation scheme to encourage and inspire children and their parents to think differently about travel and its impact on their health, well-being and the environment.


We feel very strongly about working closely with parents and carers to benefit the child. We do this by sending out a monthly newsletter which contains any updates/news, advice on certain topics, highlights of the previous month and so on. We also use a password protected website called ‘fledglings’ which enables each child’s key person to take photographs of the child during the day and upload them to the website where parents and carers can gain access and regular updates. We hold regular parent mornings to enable parents and carers to have longer discussions with their child’s key person about their development. These meetings are great to address any concerns, queries or questions parents and carers may have.


Our last Ofsted inspection was in March 2018 when we received a ‘Good’ grading. Please see the Ofsted website for our full report.
