Rainbow Teddies Handbook

Our handbook gives more detailed information about Rainbow Teddies, our aims and how we operate.  If you have any questions let us know.

Rising School Term 1

This “core curriculum” aims to meet children`s needs by providing a base for development and learning which works alongside activities which have been identified by Key workers through observations and monitoring. Staff will also be guided by the children when the play is motivated by a child`s own activity or interest and day to day planning is adapted accordingly.

Teddy Tots Term 1

As we welcome the children and their families to the Teddy Tot Sessions, staff will spend time getting to know the children and their parent/ carers. The ‘key person’ and the children will also start to build the important attachment that will help each child to feel safe and grow confident, as they begin to explore and develop their skills as an individual. The staff will support children to learn where to find their favourite resources and encourage them to use language to express their needs. Each week during this term, we will have a ‘Nursery Rhyme of the Week’ so that children can experience the ‘rhythm’ of language. Please see below, for the rhymes we will be learning this term:  We will also be exploring colours during the term.

Resources

If  you want more information and guidance regarding communication and speech or have any concerns regarding additional needs find some useful links on our Resources page.

Pre-school Policies

Our policies and procedures clearly state to staff and parents the procedures and protocol we follow in particular circumstances/situations. These policies are vital to the smooth running of the pre-school.
