Lisa Lowes, the Nursery Manager first opened Rainbow Day Nursery in 1992, starting with two staff and four children, this was in a prefab building in the center of Alnwick.

The business gradually grew and with this a change in location was needed. We have now upgraded to a beautiful Victorian building with a fantastic outdoor space very close to Alnwick castle and have been here since 2002. Lisa now offers up to 60 places for children aged 0 to 5 years and employs a great team full of creativity, loyalty and enthusiasm.

Rainbow Day Nursery is open from 8am - 6pm and our day is split into the following sessions:

Session times: Full day: 8am - 6pm
Morning 9am - 1pm
Afternoon 1pm - 5pm
