We understand that sometimes starting your baby in a day nursery can be daunting for the family; we will work closely with you to make this as comfortable and reassuring as possible for the children and their parents or carers. Bearing this in mind, our baby rooms are designed to be warm and welcoming, our highly trained professional carers will provide you with much-needed support during this transition. Our soft furnishings in the baby room and warm soothing atmosphere in the sleeping room will create a home from home environment for your baby.
In our baby rooms our staff will follow the routine already established by you for your baby. We will follow your baby’s pattern for eating and sleeping to ensure that your baby gets exactly what they need throughout the day. Staff will carefully monitor your baby while they sleep in our separate cot room.
In our baby units we will observe each individual baby and then devise activity programmes based on these observations that are suited to each child’s stage of development. In all our baby rooms you will find equipment to stimulate the senses. Toys and equipment will engage your baby in discovering the world through texture, smell, sound and taste. 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.
We provide a carefully chosen nutritious menu for growing babies that includes a hot lunch and morning and afternoon snacks. For our smaller babies we offer freshly made bottles throughout the day in the arms of one of our loving carers.
