Our calm and nurturing 0-2 room offers a range of stimulating activities to help support the babies and toddlers development. Within the room, there are 3 main areas, the main play area, snack area and a sleeping area which have both cots and pod beds for the children to sleep in.This includes treasure baskets and natural play which encourages the children to use their senses and to scoop, pour and transport. Our qualified staff sing familiar songs to the babies regularly and also encourage the babies to join in. Messy play is also encouraged within the baby room with a variety of messy play being offered regularly.
The staff take children on regular walks in the community and to the park trying to get out 3 times a week weather dependant. There are prams available to staff to use with the young babies that have not started walking yet and the staff allow the children that can walk to develop their walking. If the children can not get out for walks they have access to the garden areas allowing them to get fresh air and physical activities.
The babies are provided with a morning snack and an afternoon snack using the Setting the table guidelines. Fruit or vegetables are offered with both snacks with water being available throughout the day. We ask the Parents to provide lunch for their child/ren
The babies enjoy Sing and Sign with the staff and Jessie Cat and staff play Sing and Sign c.d to sing along to. Feedback is given daily in order to communicate with parents/carers about their child's day and to exchange any information of any updates with regards to each individual child's routine/development.
During the summer months, we require that all children have a sunhat. We ask parents to supply a high factor sun cream for their child, which can be kept at the nursery.
