Rainbow Nursery’s ethos is to provide a warm, stable, safe environment in which the children have fun, whilst developing naturally in their own time. The nursery cares for children aged from 3 months up to 5 years.
A full fit out of the washrooms was completed by Venesta Accredited Installers T-IPS, who replaced the toilet cubicles, vanity units, washroom panelling and all sanitaryware.
Based in a converted Victorian house in the West Midlands, it was decided that to enhance their already warm and bright day care setting Rainbow Nursery would undergo a complete refurbishment of the old washroom and changing facilities.
Allowing children to be autonomous in their self-care during their time at nursery is an important factor for early development, however staff at Rainbow Nursery still needed to ensure full health and safety requirements were met. The new washrooms give the children freedom to be self-sufficient, but maintain the ability for staff to safely monitor the facilities at the same time.
The nursery opted for Venesta’s Genesis toilet cubicles, a popular choice for early education settings due to the versatility of the system, with its many customisable features. Genesis cubicles with low level doors and curved partitions were specified giving staff access to supervise the children as needed.
Genesis cubicles are the recognised standard for children’s washroom cubicles within early education facilities. Created specifically with young children in mind, the toilet cubicles are designed with everything at the perfect height for varying age groups and boasts many safety features, including anti-finger trap hinges and an emergency door release mechanism giving complete peace of mind.
The toilet cubicles were specified in High Pressure Laminate (HPL) making them ideal for nursery usage, allowing for easy cleaning and simple maintenance, meaning they really will stand the test of time.
Rainbow Nursery specified their cubicle doors in our ‘Colours’ screen print, providing a fun and cheerful design for the children to enjoy, not to mention an additional learning point even when going to the bathroom. This perfectly complements the ‘Papaya’ pilasters and partitions and Vepps pre-plumbed panelling in ‘Lime’.
For cost savings and reduced installation times, our Vepps pre-plumbed panelling system was specified. The panels come with the WCs and flushes factory fitted and fully tested, meaning installation on-site is 50% faster than plain panel alternatives. Each panel is individually tested in our factory to ensure they are in full working order, so no testing is required on site. Vepps also ensures simple maintenance to allow for low down-time if repairs to the plumbing are ever required.
In addition, low level vanity units were installed featuring semi-recessed basins. A favourite for our youngest customers as they don’t get the water from the basin on their clothes when washing hands. Two baby change vanity units with an anti-roll profile were also specified for Rainbow Nursery’s new washroom facility, making it easy and practical for staff to tend to babies in their care.
It was a pleasure to provide such a fun and vibrant solution for the renovation and are pleased to hear that the new washrooms have been a huge hit with the children and staff at Rainbows Nursery.
