Baby Rooms - Discovering The World Through Play
THE BABY ROOM SETTING
We pride ourselves on the calm, safe and friendly environment that we provide for our very youngest guests where they can explore and play in our sensory, construction, quiet and musical zones. Our Baby room has a separate sleep room where the babies sleep soundly with their comforters to calming, instrumental music.
Our relationship with new parents often begins either during pregnancy or when the baby is still very tiny which means that we have lots of time to get to know you - It's important for us to get to know every baby and family individually, so that we can tailor our care provision for each baby. The settling in programme that we have in place is tried and tested to ensure that both baby and parents are well prepared for starting at nursery via a series of staggered play visits. We understand that it is an emotional time for parents when their child starts at nursery for the first time, so we strive to make this as easy as possible for you and will support you though the transition.
DISCOVERING THE WORLD THROUGH PLAY
Many of the babies' play times and activities are based around their individual interests. We offer enjoyable messy play and craft activities including gluing, drawing, painting, water and pasta play, giving the babies the chance to discover different textures and shapes.
We find that our babies thrive on routine and the days in our Baby rooms are designed around regular meal, snack, sleep and play times. We are also appreciative of your home routine, and will work with parents to incorporate your wishes as much as we can.
Our chef provides healthy homemade, fresh, food every day, catering for all our babies' dietary needs, and we support parents with their food preferences in offering a number of alternatives through which parents can influence their child's daily food. At meal and snack times we offer puree, lumpy and finger foods and our babies are supported and encouraged to feed themselves independently. We provide a variety of milk such as SMA Gold, SMA Progress & cow's milk but will accept pre-measured formula or breast milk from home if preferred.
