Coronavirus Update

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday evening, and the issue of the ‘Recovery Strategy’ document, it has been confirmed that nurseries and pre-schools may be able to open on the 1st June 2020, providing the infection rate continues to fall.

 A thorough risk assessment will be carried out before any decisions are made as to when the children can return to the Preschool. The most important part of this risk assessment is ensuring that we can keep your child/children and our staff safe.

Due to our size and the guidance provided by the Government, priority will be given to our Adventurers group, the children who will be joining Reception classes at schools in September 2020. We will be forwarding a separate email to the Adventurers’ parents.

 We hope to see the rest of the children and our new intake in September. You will be contacted again closer to the end of the summer term with confirmation of your child's sessions and return dates.

 Please keep safe and well

The Rainbow Team


Rainbow Pre-school is an independent, committee run, session based pre-school, based in Stansted Mountfitchet.
It was established in 1972 and we moved to our current well equipped premises in 2011.
We provide pre-school services to children from 2½ to 5 years. Rainbow provides a stimulating and rich environment, which supports the children's development both indoors and outdoors. This provides a positive framework to ensure the children develop in a happy and safe environment.
