At Rainbow Smiles we value the single most important factor in childcare. The people looking after them. A motivated carer will be a positive influence on the child's development. Hence great care and consideration has been taken in selecting equipment that will allow Carer's to complete the more mundane tasks quickly and efficiently, whilst also allowing them to focus more on interacting and developing the children. This philosophy can be clearly demonstrated in the Nursery's investment in producing a revolutionary Information Technology solution, which significantly reduces the vast administrative burden placed on the modern day Early Years Practitioner, however this is not at the expense of the quality or quantity of information recorded. In reality there is a marked improvement on the quality and quantity of information recorded, whilst allowing the Practitioners to focus on their number one priority i.e. The Children
Our philosophy on childcare is now enabling us to attract individuals who are as passionate about childcare as we are. This is reflected in the high number of individuals within Rainbow Smiles, who are undertaking a Level 6 Vocational Childcare qualification in order that they are able to develop a career in childcare. Our team are provided the opportunity to develop their skills to other areas of the Early Year environment, this has meant that Rainbow Smiles is committed to a high Staff to Child ratio, as we believe this career development should not be at the expense of the care the children receive..
