At Rainbows End we believe that Children should be respected as individuals and their self-esteem should never be undermined and our quality care means that a child’s needs are taken care of and above all, fulfilling their need for love & attention


We engage in active learning by providing different sensory experiences and plenty of interaction with experienced Early Years staff 


Our curriculum will be based on the premise that children are the leaders in their own education using all the principles of the Aistear & Siolta Framework  


We will prompt children in the preschool to question, seek, explore & discover


Parents’ views and wishes are taken into careful consideration and are respected


We will ensure that all staff are accessible to parents to discuss their child’s day and development.


We will operate an Open Door Policy for new & existing parents.
