The Rainbow Room
The Rainbow Room offers a safe place for children where, through Thrive and the nurturing process learning and emotions are understood developmentally. Thrive is a dynamic, developmental approach to working with children and young people that helps teachers and adults to interpret their behaviour and address their emotional needs.
We carry out activities in a small group or one to one which include: cooking, art, planting/gardening, sand tray, 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’, Talkabout and ‘Getting on and Falling Out’. 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 Thrive/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 or moving to a new school. bereavement and loss, separation, moving house or a new family member. Children are able to express themselves through Thrive and the nurturing environment in a calm and quiet atmosphere. However, It is also important to experience stimulating and exciting experiences in order to support emotional development too.
We also have a celebration tea party once a week, one child from every class is 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 an ‘I’ve been to a Rainbow Room Tea Party’ badge before they leave.
We also support families wishing to learn more about the Thrive Approach and its practical application to everyday life. If you would like to know more about up and coming courses please come and see me in Rainbow Room.
