A warm, nurturing, homely environment that offers quality and flexibility
Our baby room team provide exceptional care in an environment designed with elements of your own nursery to create a homely feel for babies. The room is unique in terms of its facilities, experiences and activities offered.
Our sensory section has been carefully set up to stimulate and encourage babies’ development. This includes soft play, musical activities and exposure to play with different textures.
A variety of activites
We believe in making your baby’s time at the nursery as comfortable, stimulating and relaxing as much as possible. Our key person approach enables this; during the settling in visits, your child’s key person will establish their routine. These individual routines such as sleeping, mealtimes and weaning are incorporated from home into their day at the nursery.
For older babies, we offer varied activities such as construction, jigsaws, small world and more. The children gain valuable experiences from messy and creative activities such as sand and water, painting, baking, glueing and sticking.
The baby room has its own well-equipped areas for nappy changing and bottle feeding. We provide nutritional home-cooked meals from our fully trained and experienced chef. Any allergy or particular need is catered for, understanding every child is individual.
Outdoor play is also an essential part of our day. Our babies have their own outdoor space, which is safe and secure with a range of equipment to offer physical and sensory experiences. Much of our children’s day is spent outside in our rich learning environment.
We also provide walks locally and adventures to surrounding places. Interesting opportunities for the children include visits to the library, park and garden centres. These places are a major part of our routine.
