Focusing on education, inclusivity and sustainability, Rainbow Playrooms offers children and their families carefully thought out activities that will mirror child-led learning through play.

Using a Montessori Inspired approach, a system of education for young children that seeks to develop natural interests and activities rather than use formal teaching methods, Rainbow Playrooms focuses on making learning fun yet natural by using everyday items and specially hand picked materials, using eco-friendly and sustainable resources.

There are currently five members of the Rainbow team, which previously ran from The Art House on Drury Lane, all of which have various experience and levels of education in and around working with children and families .
