In terms of resource, the Baby Room has been significantly invested in and is tailored for children between the ages of three and twenty four months.
The Baby Room is bright and airy, with child height windows giving the babies a wonderful view onto a primary school playing field. We can have up to twelve babies in this space and we have four qualified members of staff to care for them.
A committed team provide a home from home environment and liaise closely with parents and carers to share information to help the children settle and and feel safe and secure.
We know a babies brain more than trebles in weight during the first two years and understand that high self esteem and rich sensory experience are essential - the room and routines are developed to facilitate this. The babies have continual access to exciting physical play and a range of sensory objects to explore and investigate throughout each session. The routine is unhurried and child centered, development is observed and supported by carefully planned 'next step' activities and secure bonds with adults established.
We truly value this precious time with your little ones and are keen to share with parents and carers information between home and the setting in a partnership that truly supports your child's early years.
We have access to our own dedicated Baby Garden, this space is equipped with age appropriate resources for exploring
the outdoor world.
Recent additions to his area have included a Sound/Music Wall and a small herb garden.
