The Baby Room play rooms are located on the ground floor of the main house. The Baby Room staff care for children from birth to 2 years with a ratio 1 adult to 3 children.
The Baby Room is a homely, spacious and welcoming play environment with wonderful resources offering the children plenty of opportunities for stimulating learning, development and interaction. The Baby Room offers two dedicated play rooms and throughout the day there is a combination of adult led activities and child initiated play opportunities. The staff ensure the children have opportunities to extend their learning through role play, outside play, creative and tactile activities, growing and gardening, story telling and listening, numeracy and literacy alongside engaging stories, song time and baking.
The children also enjoy spending time in their art room where they can get creative and messy with painting, gluing, play dough, clay and exploring a variety of textures in the play trough and on craft tables.
The Baby Room has its own garden fully equipped with a low level climbing frame and slide, low level swing sets, a sand pit, play house and a large gazebo.
The children also have use of the 3 other outside areas:
The wild garden- planting vegetable and flowers, watching them grow and caring for them.
The Courtyard- scooting around on the trikes and riding bikes, chalk drawing and sports equipment.
The low level balance garden- Developing balancing skills and coordination, using a range of natural climbing apparatus.
Our babies sleep outside in pushchairs under the sleep canopy in the back garden with staff supervision. We use cosy toes and rain covers for the wet and colder months.
