Rainbow Room 2020 - 2021

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.

We have introduced Sensory Circuit into our daily routine which creates calming 1:1 Support through the use of physical activities, sensory experiences and deep pressure techniques that help the children to feel relaxed, content and focused, ready for the day ahead. We also embrace our time in Forest School, enjoying our natural surroundings and taking risks outdoors to develop our confidence and gross motor skills.

Thank you to all of our children and their families for wonderful daily adventures; filled with happiness, incredible achievements and lots of fun!
