About Rainbow

Rainbow Childcare first opened as Rainbow Cottage Nursery in 1993 and was registered with North Ayrshire Council for 23 children between 2 and 5 years old.  This consisted of three play rooms within a cottage sited on Howgate Kilwinning.  In 1996, an extension was built onto the side of the cottage and brought the registration to 40 children. 

This registration continued for the next four years until June 2000 when the former Mansfield Church next door was purchased.  The auxiliary hall at the back of the church was opened in September 2000, and called The Prep School, to accommodate Pre-School children (3 to 5 years) and the cottage expanded its toddler and baby departments.  The nursery was now registered for 83 children. 

In September 2003, the main hall in the former church was opened and added 60 more child places which brought the overall places to 143 per session.    In 2004, the building next to the cottage was purchased, and in 2008 opened to accommodate the Before and After School Care.  This allows Rainbow to care for 198 children morning or afternoon.
