Sandy Lane Nursery and Forest School

Rainbow Room

Welcome to Rainbow Room! We are Sandy Lane’s designated provision for children with a  range of complex and additional learning needs, between the ages of two and four years. Children who attend Rainbow Room have been referred from the Child Development Centre to our Outreach team.

Our sensory-stimulating environment is accessible by all children, and is carefully tailored to meet the needs of each individual child. Our small ratios, and highly skilled and experienced staff enable us to support children in meeting milestones through magical, hands-on experiences. Every child’s voice is valued, and they are encouraged to communicate in their own way using Makaton, PECs and other appropriate strategies.

We work extremely closely with parents, carers, and other professionals such as paediatricians and Speech and Language Therapists to provide appropriate, individualised plans for each child.

Our children access a range of experiences including daily visits to our sensory room, playcourt, sensory cooking, tac-pac, and Teachh.

Here in Rainbow Room we take great pride in the progress that we support our children in making, academically, socially and emotionally.
