About Rainbow
Community Playgroup

We are a preschool for children aged 3-5years.  We offer part-time (4 hours) and sessional (3 hours) services over two locations.  We operate in line with school closures and run the ECCE Scheme (Early Childhood Care and Education)

We are Tusla registered.  We have ten staff members over two locations catering for up to 70 children every year.  We are a non-profit organisation. We are members of Early Childhood Ireland and funded by Pobal and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.

More About Us

Our Misssion

Our mission is to provide high quality childcare and educational opportunities in a safe, respectful and inclusive environment.  We have a holistic approach that enables each child to develop their social, physical, emotional and intellectual abilities.

We believe that the role of the adult is to partner and support children in their learning. We believe children learn and develop through loving and nurturing relationships with adults and other children.

Childcare

Rainbow Playgroup is committed to offering access to the playgroup and its facilities, to all adults and children in the local community. The childcare service operates an “open door” policy meaning a welcome at all times for all parents and carers.

Healthy Lunches

We provide a small fruit break during the day but children will need to bring a small healthy snack every day.

Learning & Fun

We believe that children learn best when they are active in their learning and they can choose activities that are of real interest to themselves.

Physical Activity

On a daily basis children will have access to outdoor play.  We also enjoy outings to local parks and playgrounds as part of our curriculum.

Learning Through Play

There are many parts of our curriculum that are ‘hidden’.  Many of our learning opportunities and experiences are disguised as games.  We have a play based approach to learning and use elements of the HighScope Curriculum every day.  Children are not formally taught letters, sounds or numbers but will be introduced to them through games, activities and conversation.

Our Services

We operate the ECCE (Early Childhood Care and Education) Scheme which entitles children to care for 15 hours free per week and for 38 weeks of the year, in line with school closures. We run our service for an additional 5 hours per week at a cost of €20 per week.
