Review of Rainbow Day Nursery on Wednesday 29 May 2013 by Chi Olaye (Parent)

I believe Rainbow Day Nursery is one of the hidden jewels of Dartford. I searched for a long time looking for a nursery for my little one. I had visited quite a few but from the moment I walked into Rainbow Day Nursery, I stopped searching. I was struck by the warmth of the staff towards the children, the kids were happy, confident and relaxed in approaching staff, kids were engaged in different things. The staff were friendly, reassuring and patient. The atmosphere was relaxed, lively and joyful. My LO was wary of strangers and hence I was worried about her settling in. The nursery was so kind to draw up a longer, that they normally would, settling program. I brought my LO in one the first day to the baby room and she immediately got stuck in. So much for the special settling in program! There has been no looking back since. My LO is now 40 months old and going to nursery is one of the highlight of her week days. I can't say enough about the staff. They are excellent. They sincerely do work together with parents in achieving aims, hopes and education for your LO. I can't thank them enough. They are great with my LO.

Review of Rainbow Day Nursery on Wednesday 1 August 2012 by Helen Sear (Parent)

I know how hard it is to decide what child care will be best, thought I'd share my experience here. Rainbow has been a fabulous influence on my daughter's sunny personality. She started at 11 months and was well looked after as a baby. I am also highly fussy about what food my daughter should eat on a regular basis and Rainbow have supported my decisions as well as tried to accommodate some of my suggestions within their overall food options for all the children. It's such a friendly place and all the children seem very happy. My daughter is now nearly 32 months and still loves going.
