Rayleigh Home

From the Principal.

In 1983, at a time when my own children were toddlers, my family moved to Essex. I quickly discovered that the local pre-school provision did not include the sort of high quality nursery care that I envisaged for my sons. I set about realising my dream, and after much research and endless months of hard work, I found our current site (40 Eastwood Road in Rayleigh) and Rainbow Nursery was born in October 1984. We have since welcomed thousands of children, many of whom have gone on to become university students and successful business people. One former pupil recently notified us that she has been offered a place at Cambridge University. Her parents generously added that they felt sure that their daughter’s success could partly be attributed to the very good start she had here at Rainbow.

I myself become an Early Years Professional, an NVQ assessor in childcare and education and have spent a year working for OfSTED as an early years inspector. My time is now divided between the nurseries. I now sit on the Essex Early Years Development and Child Care Partnership and have been an NDNA committee member for over 10 years. My qualifications and experience have enabled us to stay at the forefront of local nursery provision. We hope that you will enjoy browsing our site and we look forward to welcoming you soon.
