WHY Rainbows and Puddles?

If you were lucky enough to spend a lot of time outdoors as a child, you will recall the endless hours of fun you had building dens, splashing in puddles, climbing hills and trees then  going home, wet, dirty, tired, happy and itching to get back out and do it all again!

The national curricular framework in Scotland, Curriculum for Excellence endorses children being active participants in their own learning. Children who attend Rainbows and Puddles are free from the restraints of the 4 walls of indoor environments and are able to rely on real life natural resources in real life situations as a means to learn and develop.

At Rainbows and Puddles children as little as 2 have opportunities to make choices and take ownership over their play – whether that might be to follow the trail of a snail or transport leaves in their wheelbarrow.

Through playing and learning in a woodland environment children develop skills of resilience and empathy as they work together; whether building a pirate ship or helping one another climb up a muddy, slippery hill.

Fresh air, exercise, a broad and balanced early curriculum, passionate and committed staff, excitement, fun, beasties, trees and mud – there’s nowhere quite like Rainbows and Puddles.
