About Us

Rainbow Bicester is a registered charity run by a Committee, the majority of whom are parents of children currently attend the provision. This means rather than chasing profit we are focused on ensuring the children in our care get the best possible pre school experience. 


We have been running for over 30 years and pride ourselves on our loyal and committed staff base. Our staff turn over is very low and this means your child will get to know and depend on the adults around them and you can have confidence in the care they will receive. We pride ourselves on the quality and experience of the staff employed at Rainbow Bicester. All staff are regularly assessed and enrolled on relevant training courses.

Our provision comprises large secure entrance lobby with security measures in place ensuring safety of all children in our care, open plan play areas and kitchen area, staff/conference room, office, children's toilet facilities, extra wide toilet/changing facility, large all weather outdoor play area partially covered with race track, mud kitchen, sandpit, water play, climbing frame, with gardening and nature areas.

We are registered with Ofsted and inspected regularly by the Environmental Health and Fire Departments. We have full Liability Insurance, General Insurance and Employers Liability Cover.

"I am so thankful to Rainbow. They support the whole family not just the child. Kai has flourished and I am not sure how I would have survived without all of your help!! Wouldn’t send any child anywhere else. Thank you all."
