Rainbow Woods Pre-School has been rated as Good by Ofsted and is proud to be part of the Wessex Learning Trust family of schools. Our core difference is our staff; a highly experienced and caring team who are committed to providing the very best early years education through up-to-date training including most recently the well-regarded Singapore maths and Phase 1 phonics. We aim to provide a home-from-home environment in our cosy well-equipped classroom where the children call the staff by their first names and are offered healthy nutritious meals. We highly value our close relationships with our families. Parents are always welcome to spend time in Pre-School, whether to chat about your childs development, volunteering, through the Weare School app or Parent Consultation evenings. Our program includes regularly scheduled enrichment activities which may include dance, cookery, Forest School and French. Our expansive grounds, as well as our indoor space are specifically designed to meet the young childs need for gross and fine motor development. Our curriculum heavily focuses on the Prime areas of Learning: Communication and Language, Physical Development and Listening and Attention, all in preparation for their first year at school. We work very closely with Weare Academy First School and the Reception Class team. Each week the Reception Class Teacher spends time in the Pre-School and reads the children a story, with additional phonic activities from the Spring Term. The Wessex Learning Trust is passionate about providing the very best education for all our children and by working together we believe we can harness the talents of all our staff, share good practice and deliver excellence. The Wessex Learning Trust offers your child a seamless learning journey for ages 2-19.;
