Little Rainbows

Little Rainbows Key Information


What is Little Rainbows?


Little Rainbows is a provision for 2 year olds at Mab Lane School. We opened in October 2014 and currently provide part time early education for sixteen children, eight in the morning session and eight in the afternoon session . It is run by two experienced Early Years Practitioners who have been part of Mab Lane for many years.


Early Years Outcomes


Learning takes place indoors and outdoors, including a range of directed activities and activities undertaken as part of continuous provision. Continuous Provision allows for independent learning in different enviroments. All of these will link to the Early Years Outcomes and the childrens interests.


What are Schemas?


Why do children line rows and rows of the same object up? Why do they develop fascinations with throwing or hiding?

Repetitive behaviour like this is known as schematic behaviour, and while it may seem odd, it is in fact a learning mechanism and a perfectly normal part of your child’s development.

Please talk to your child’s key person for more information on how you can support your child’s play schemas at home.
