CHILDCARE centres across the region have been taking a colourful approach to the COVID-19 pandemic through a world-wide movement.
The Rainbow Week movement began in Italy and has since reached centres across the world.
The concept encourages kids to decorate their centres in rainbow colours, to help spread positivity to the community.
Nurture One and Nido Early School are just two of the region's centres joining the Rainbow Trail Australia.
Nurture One centre manager Rachel McRae said the kids had shown great interest in the concept.
"We've done a lot of decorating and the kids are dressing up in a different colour every day," Ms McRae said.
"It's been a lot of fun and it's been really nice to see people walking past the centre, stop and have a look at how we've decorated everything."
A Nido Early School spokesperson said the movement was creating a positive feeling within the community.
"Here at Nido, we believe we are a strong community consisting of parents, carers, educators and children," the spokesperson said.
"We will continue offering supplies for parents and children to share their messages of positivity, whether it be through creative expression or affirmations."
