Our cosy baby room is equipped to meet the needs of your young child from their early beginnings where sleep, food and plenty of cuddles is essential to their growing independence as they learn to walk, talk and feed themselves. Your child will be cared for by a dedicated Key Person, who will attend to all of your child’s needs and liaise with you on all aspects of their care, routines and learning. The baby room has its own outdoor area where the babies are able to explore the outdoors as they wish.
The room has direct access to a large enclosed outdoor area where your child can race around the ‘Formula One’ racing track, or explore the ‘secret garden’; or in quieter moments spend some time in the willow tunnel, reading or chatting with friends and staff. Indoors the emphasis is still on exploration and investigation using natural materials. Your child’s key person will be observing their interests and planning activities which cover all the areas of learning and development in the Early Years Foundation Stage, in particular their emerging literacy and maths skills, together with art and design and understanding the world. The children have a letters and sounds session every day which helps with their early literacy development.
Learning through play is our key priority and from experience we know at this age the messier the better! Your child will explore sand and water play, gloop (cornflour and water) soil, snow, jelly…. the list is endless! Yet with a ratio of 1 adult to 3 children, your child will still have that special adult to help with their care needs, run to when they have found something exciting or scary! or to snuggle up to at storytime. The room has direct access to an outdoor area for exploring. Your child’s key person will be a very important link between home and nursery this is particularly important to enable us to accurately complete your child’s 2 year progress check.
