Calm and Caring Environment
The individual needs of babies are catered for by qualified and highly trained staff. The environment has been especially designed to stimulate baby’s senses and to create a safe, clean and calm home from home environment. We operate under ofsted guidelines ration of 3:1.
Different areas include a soft play area, messy play area, cosy corner, play frame and much much more to keep your babies mind stimulated and active.
There is a separate sleep room with cots and small beds. Babies are checked every 10 minutes while they sleep. The cottage is equipped with everything necessary for the special care of young babies including a milk kitchen and baby change area.
Meals and snacks
The nursery provides healthy and nutritious cooked meals along with healthy snack and drinks. Children’s routines from home are recognized and mirrored in the setting to provide continuity of care, in addition to this staff liaise closely with the child’s parent/carer recognising them as the child’s first and most important educator and ensuring a successful three way partnership is formed between child, staff and parent/carer.
Every baby has a daily diary where you will receive information about your child’s day at nursery for example what they have eaten, how long they have slept, nappy changes and the activities they have been doing. Of course staff are always available for chats and will give you feedback about your child’s day.
Every baby also has a folder which documents their progress and development through observations and reports. Activities are planned on the individual interests and needs of the children.
When the children are ready to move up to the two year olds room they will go for visits with their key person who will settle them into their new environment.
