Blue Room

The Blue Room is based in the Little Treasures area at the Rainbow Centre and incorporates 2 separate rooms. We provide provision for 2-3 year olds in this area, including those children accessing the 2 Year Funding.

We have a variety of areas in the Blue Room including Sand and Water play, Construction Area, Mathematical Area and Mark Making Areas. The children are encouraged to explore the provision through free choice.

In our quieter room there is a Home Corner, and Reading Den.

The children have regular free choice access to the outside provision, with the door being open for the children to choose to play inside or out.

‘Stories for Talking’ is accessed within the Blue Room, this is done twice daily, this helps to promote and develop all areas of communication and language development. Weekly homework sheets are sent home which correspond to the termly book for ‘Stories for Talking’. We display these sheets within the room when they are brought back.

We encourage and support independence in the Blue Room whilst providing comfort and reassurance when needed, such as dressing themselves in the fancy dress and putting their own belongings and ‘pictures’ in their own box. Each child in Blue Room is allocated a ‘My Box’ to ensure any comforters are kept safe but the children know where to find them if needed. We also support the child and their family with toilet training, when the child is ready to do so.

Each child is allocated a key worker and a significant other to ensure each child is supported and so that there is always someone present for you and your child. All children are given a ‘Tapestry’ journal, which is set up and managed by us, however we encourage parents to send photographs showing what they get up to at home, as well as being used as a platform for instant communication between parents and staff.

“Thank you for helping me to learn and grow, giving me cuddles when I cried, sharing my joys when I did something for the first time. Thank you for always making me feel safe and loved and my mummy says Thank you for helping to raise me!”

Testimonials

“Thank you so much for making me feel so comfortable and welcome during my lunchtime feeds with Anna. You made the transition back to work much easier and I couldn’t have chosen a better group of ladies to leave her with each day. We both look forward to her time still to come in the Yellow Room.”

“Thank you so much for all you have done for both Arthur and Stanley. You have cared for them through the tears and tantrums and breath holding! Stanley has had such an amazing time here and it was through your dedication and care and support. It is sad that he is leaving but I am sure he will settle in his new nursery because of the confidence and skills you have given him. Thank you!”
