To the side of this room we have a beautiful separate outdoor play area which provides shelter, decking and imitation grass providing a lovely stimulating weatherproof environment for the babies and toddlers throughout the year.
Our baby and toddler room is bright and stimulating, yet cosy and secure, with lots of space for early movement. When parent and baby first come to our nursery we will ask you to spend some time with us to help us to understand your baby's routine and needs. We need to know as much about your baby as possible in order that we can integrate your baby's routine into our nursery day. Your baby's day will be filled with activities and opportunities provided through a variety of toys and resources, including heuristic play and treasure baskets, messy play, exploration, talking, singing and music, walks and lots of hugs.
Your baby will be allocated a Key Person who will develop a bond with you and your child and liaise closely with you regarding all aspects of you child's development and care.
"The staff in the baby rooms have been excellent. I have been able to talk to them about anything. They are very helpful and make you feel confident in leaving my child in their care"
As your child develops their growing confidence, independence and mobility is encouraged and enhanced through various activities and opportunities including painting, mark making, cutting, sticking, water and sand play, music and movement, malleable and messy play, physical play, construction, baking, etc.
We have high chairs for the youngest children and tiny wooden chairs and
tables for them to sit at when they are ready to do so. Gradually, we will work with you to wean your baby onto a varied menu of homemade food rich in fresh fruit and vegetables.
There is a child size toilet available for the children to use and also potties which can be used in complete privacy as and when your child is ready to start toilet training.
When your child is at least two year's old they may be ready to move upstairs. This will only be done after discussion with yourself, and when are all in agreement that we feel your child is ready. Full information regarding your child will be passed onto the new Key Person prior to gradual admission sessions being arranged. Your child will have as many sessions as we feel necessary before actually moving. We will liaise with you and keep you fully informed at all times.
