Our Story

Rainbow Nursery first opened its doors in August 1989 and is registered with The Care Commission and approved by HMI. We are in partnership with West Lothian Council to offer grant assisted places for children aged 3-5 years. The nursery has been owned by a family from Glasgow since 2003 and serves the community of Bathgate and its surrounding areas.

Our Expansion

The nursery underwent an extensive expansion programme which completed in June 2009. The finished result speaks for itself as you will see at your viewing.

At present the nursery consists of a newly refurbished 3 storey building which houses Pre-School in the basement, toddler room and baby room on the ground floor and the After School Club on the upper floor. Just around the corner from the main nursery is our new venture. We have converted the Old Library to accommodate our pre-schoolers. It will most definately be state of the art when completed and we hope to open the doors mid to end of March 2013.

New Premises - Hopetoun Street

Rainbow Nursery opened their new Pre-School unit in April 2013. With a capacity for 60 children, the spaces have filled up very quickly. This is not at all surprising as it must be said that the facilities are some of the most impressive in the Lothians! The pre-school has been purposefully developed with open-plan, bright and secure environments in mind. This is also complimented by the children enjoying varied sports, music, dance and yoga.
