A NURSERY dedicated to children with additional needs and their siblings will open next month in Mawdesley.
Rainbow Hub is behind the new nursery, which is registered with Ofsted, and it will be run by highly trained, experienced staff for children between two and five years.
It will only operate with small groups, meaning that each child will have a greater chance and more time to develop and achieve life skills.
It will officially open on October 4 at Rainbow Hub’s base in Mawdesley.
Lyndsay Fahey, chief executive of Rainbow Hub, said: “Developing a high quality, specialised Early Years’ service will help families with a child who has additional needs who are often forgotten during those early years when they are at their most vulnerable .
“It will help families to access the government funded childcare and offer parents the opportunity for respite or even return to work.
“The number we can accommodate at any time will naturally be restricted by the specialist nature of the services and the high staff to child ratio.
“However we hope that we will be able to offer many children the opportunity to learn, develop and unlock their potential, whilst also supporting their families.”
The nursery will operate from 9am-4.30pm in term time and parents with children from 2 to 5 will be able to use their child care vouchers for up to 15 hours or 30 hours per week dependent on their entitlement. Costs for children paying privately will be £45 per day.
Rainbow Hub’s purpose built facility has extensive outdoor space, sensory room and soft play area and they believe that their nursery is unique in the services and environment it will offer.
