Even when they are only a few months old, babies are beginning to learn about their environment and to develop the basic intellectual, physical and social skills that they will rely on in later life. We provide a safe and caring environment that is rich in colour, sound, movement and touch for the children to explore and in which they can begin to develop their mobility. The children enjoy sensory and tactile experiences such as playing with paints and water, exploring a variety of natural objects in a “treasure basket” or simply enjoying a book and a cuddle with one of the carers.
We work with you to adapt to the way you care for your baby at home, so that feeding, nappy changes and sleeping all take place at times to suit your baby’s individual routine. Our staff will prepare milk bottles according to your instructions and gradually introduce freshly-prepared, foods when your baby is ready. Everything we do is designed to give your child the best possible standard of care.
For our older babies, all our units are divided into different developmental areas to promote independence, communication skills, wellbeing, identity and belonging. Our rooms are designed such that activities and equipments are at the child’s level meaning the child decides what they want to play with under the caring guidance of their staff.
Your babies’ routine….
We provide a home to home care in our baby room, our staff team will follow the routine already established by you for your baby, the routine for eating and sleeping to ensure that your baby gets exactly what she/he needs throughout the day. Staff will carefully monitor your baby while they sleep and records are kept to give you real time information of what they have done throughout the day through our daily report app – my toddler and Tapestry. Our daily routine apps (access given upon registration) gives you instant information of what is happening to your child even when you are at work!

In our baby room we observe each individual baby and then devise activity programmes based on these observations that are suited to each child’s stage of development. Baby room Equipment is provided to assist the development of leg muscles in preparation for their first steps. We sing songs and read stories on an everyday basis and offer lots of cuddles throughout the day.
