About this home

A home from home tiney nursery with excellent transport links and local amenities. Lots of nearby attractions to keep us busy as well as a vibrant home full of lots of fun play areas. Little Rainbows is perfectly situated next door to the recreational ground. Forest walks, open spaces and a child friendly playground on our doorstep. Little Rainbows has an enormous private garden also as well as the whole downstairs as playing space. From January 2023 there will be an assistant joining the team.

About our tiney childminder

I’ve set up my tiney home to be welcoming for all families. With over 17 years of childcare experience my setting is the perfect place for your child to thrive and succeed. Little Rainbows is a place of expression and is mindful of the children’s needs being a priority. Little Rainbows is somewhere your child (children) can feel safe and loved. A place where every child matters.

In this neighbourhood

I am on the edge of Langdon Hills recreational ground. I am local to many churches hosting baby and toddler groups as well as the local library. I am also local to a lake with ducks, a local soft play as well as a playground and playing field. Both adults have a car with enough seats for outings and trips often.

What others are saying about this home...

Samantha Brown

Such a thoughtful and caring childminder with a home from home setting! We were so nervous about leaving our little girl to the point where I almost gave up work and then we found Sid! She immediately made us feel comfortable and reassured us that our baby would be looked after in the way we take care of her!! Couldn't recommend her services more, so glad we met her.

Ellie Lucas

After feeling extremely anxious about leaving my little boy with anyone but knowing i had too, i now have no anxiety what so ever! Sidonie really provides the best for our little boy and she has really helped settle him in and make him feel comfortable! 1000% recommend!

Penny Mei

I was really anxious to find an appropriate childcare setting for my babies, but as soon as I met Sidonie I had every confidence in her ability to provide a great environment for little people. Sidonie is calm, practical, enthusiastic and SO organised. I am kept up to date on how the littles are doing and Sidone provides thoughtful, and practical, suggestions on how to ensure they are comfortable while in her care.


It’s always daunting to leave your child with someone you don’t know but to pick up your child every evening after work to a child who has big smile on her face says alot about the care that is being provided. Sid from the beginning has shown interest in the needs of my daughter and has always made it her priority to make my daughter feel at home - which has been very evident. My daughter has shown so much development over the past couple months and that’s all down to Sid and her beautiful daughter. I would like to thank Sid for all the love and care she has provided. Hands down the best childminder around.
