Rainbows Childminding

A comprehensive child care service where children can learn and develop at their own pace to reach their full potential. Janet Hardiman is accredited, and can offer 30 hours funded for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. At our last Ofsted inspection we were awarded Good. The children spend time outside each day and we like to take them on walks to enhance their knowledge of the world around them. We provide many stimulating activities, open-ended play and we promote child-led activities for the children. We encourage their creativity, messy play and lots of cookery and food tasting activities. We offer a secure, safe and happy environment to meet all the children's individual needs.
