About Us

Rainbow Nursery Ltd has been trading for over 18 years and over this time we have focused on offering the highest quality of childcare in Fife.


In 1994, we established the first of the Rainbow Nurseries in Thornton. We then expanded with the opening of a purpose-built nursery within the expansive grounds of St Andrews University in 1998. Due to the success of the St Andrews nursery the design of the business and property was replicated, and in 2001 we opened a near identical purpose-built facility in Glenrothes. In 2002, we acquired our fourth nursery in Dalgety Bay. Due to the ageing condition of the property in Thornton, we decided to expand the provision at Glenrothes with the addition of a purpose-built extension and relocated the business from Thornton to Glenrothes in 2007.


One of the strongest features of the group is its reputation. Through our own research, we have discovered that around 95% of new parents choose  Rainbow nursery because they were either recommended or because of our reputation.


Rainbow Nursery Ltd has excellent working relations with the Care Inspectorate, Fife Childcare Strategy and Fife Council Equate team. In 2007, the nurseries were selected to pilot the Care Commission's new inspection and grading programme.


At present, Rainbow Nursery Ltd is the largest private provider of childcare in Fife offering 177 childcare places from 3 months to 5 years, as well as 54 after school places. The group currently employs over 50 staff in total and was the first nursery company in Scotland to be awarded the Investors in People award.


Our Mission


Is to be the friendliest nursery locally, where everyone feels welcome and included.


We are committed to working together with one primary objective; to give carers and children the opportunity to experience a nursery where the entire provision, as a whole, is greater than all of the individual elements put together.
