Our baby room caters from 6 weeks to 12 months. The staff to child ratio is a 1:3 and we provide visually stimulating room environments for your child to explore. Within each room the staff complete an in-depth settling in process where your child will be assigned their own Key Worker who will discuss your child’s needs and there development so far.
Our Baby Room development strategies concentrate on learning through play, using messy activities such as jelly, custard & beans through to ribbons, scarves & feathers. Staff plan appropriate activities for this age range and work with the Early Years Foundation stage profile on a daily basis as they are encouraged to begin verbal and non-verbal communication with both their peers and carers focusing on repetition and imitation. Within the baby room we help to enhance your child’s physical development through the use of physical development sheets which are planned monthly according to the child’s age.
Our baby room also provides heuristic and sensory opportunities through the use of treasury baskets to engage the baby’s senses and curiosities of everyday objects. Outdoor learning is catered for by regular outings around the surrounding area along with use of the nursery garden where we have equipment activities to stimulate the development of your baby.
Babies are given a nutritious balanced diet which is all cooked daily on site by our nursery chef. Younger babies are catered for as they are given puréed fruit/veg before they are introduced to meats and other food substances. (Please refer to our menus for further details).
