About the College

Rainbows Room - 3-5 Years

The 3-5’s room is designed to facilitate self chosen activity so that the children can combine toys and resources to discover and learn all they can about their current interests and ideas. They have access to a computer with age appropriate software and programs. They have free flow access to the garden throughout the day. There is a quiet area to relax in and to look at books, a role play area where children can play out different scenarios and favourite themes, for example going to the shops, the garden centre or the hairdressers and of course there is access to messy and creative play.

Room Staff

Kaley Giongo

Kaley, Senior Nursery Nurse

I joined the nursery team in February 2013. I have a PGCE in Early Years Education. I adore getting messy and exploring outdoor environments with the children. I love cooking, especially baking and will try my hand at anything crafty, currently I am having a go at crocheting and sewing.


Louise Heap

Louise, Nursery Nurse

I studied for my N.N.E.B. when I left school, continuing on to gain an Honours degree in Education and spent the next twenty years teaching pupils at Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. I gained Early Years Professional Status in 2010. I have lived and worked in China as the Principal of the International Kindergarten in Hong Kong. This was a truly magical and memorable experience. In my spare time, I attend early morning lane swimming sessions, recently fulfilling my ambition of completing two miles. I am a keen gardener, an avid reader and devoted ‘nana’ to my gorgeous two-year-old grandson.

Kelly Snell

Kelly, Nursery Assistant

I have been working at Exeter College Day Nursery since May 2016. I studied health and Social Care at Exeter College and gained Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma, after I qualified I decided I wanted to work with children. Since being at the nursery I have loved every minute of it. I have gained valuable knowledge and experience needed to carry on with my childcare career. One of the many activities I enjoy with the children is art and craft. I also enjoy cooking activities with the children. In my spare time I like to go swimming and catching up with my family and friends.

I’m Beth and I am currently doing my level 2 apprenticeship. I am at the nursery every day during the week except Tuesday’s. I love creative activities, song time and reading stories to the children. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching movies and reading a good book.
