Over The Rainbow Day Nursery – Employer

Over The Rainbow Day Nursery is a family run, Ofsted registered day nursery in which we aim to provide a positive experience for all of our children and parents alike.
We have many years of childcare experience, which has strengthened the knowledge that there is a growing need within the Romford area for affordable childcare provisions.
Over The Rainbow Day Nursery opened its doors in early 2015 and we have been providing quality childcare to the local area ever since. Prior to this, we were caring for local children for many years as a registered childminder, please see our references page as a testament to the care we provide.

We hope to provide a middle ground between the bigger corporate day nurseries and the smaller capabilities of childminders, at the same time providing a safe and secure home from home environment for all children in our care.
