‘The portlethen 2’s group’ was originally run by Aberdeenshire Council, 3 days a week for one and a half hour classes, where Lauren and Tara worked there as play workers.
In 2016 we were given the unfortunate news that due to council cutbacks that the 2’s group would close. 😰
Lauren and Tara were very passionate about the 2s group and how it benefited not only the children but the community of portlethen and surrounding areas.
In February 2017 the group closed and 5 days later Friendship Rainbow begun! 🌈
We have grown significantly over the years and now operate 5 morning classes from 9.30- 12.30 and care for 75 children a week!
It is still to this day our passion and to show local authorities the importance of play and socialisation before a child begins there official early learning and childcare path at nursery.
We continue to fight every day in ensuring equality and to speak for our 2 year olds and there families.
