The Rainbow Room
This is our Nurture Room where we follow the six principles of Nurture.
The Rainbow Room offers a safe place for children where their learning is understood developmentally. We carry out activities in a small group which include: cooking, planting/gardening, construction, problem solving, messy/sensory play and turn taking games.
Language is a vital means of communication, therefore, we carry out weekly intervention groups such as ‘The Summit Programme’, ‘Good to be me’ and ‘Time to Talk.’
As well as group sessions we also offer one to one too as we see both as an important part of developing children's well being. Through the nurture process we strive to raise children's resilience, confidence and self-esteem.
We also understand that all behaviour is communication and have a listening approach to all the children in our care.
Transitions play an important part in children’s lives, whether it be starting school, moving to a new school, bereavement and loss, separation, moving house or a new family member. The nurturing environment enables children to express themselves in a calm and quiet atmosphere.
We also have a celebration tea party once a week, one child from every class (including Nursery) are invited to attend. We make party hats, ice and decorate cakes, play games such as pass the parcel, dance and have a party tea. Children are rewarded with a certificate and an ‘I’ve been to a Rainbow Room Tea Party’ badge before they leave.
Please watch this space in the autumn term to see what the children have been doing in Rainbow Room.
