Inside The Nursery

Our adjoining baby rooms are fully equipped and resourced with everything your child will need throughout the day.

We have imaginary, comfortable, exploratory and physical areas as well as messy play and a book corner.

We aim to follow your routine when settling your baby into nursery , you know your child best and we work closely with you on a daily basis.

banner_04Each child 0 – 24 months has their own Key Worker who will inform you of their progress, activities, and daily routines.

The information will be provided in a  ‘chatabout’ diary which can be kept in their bag and is a two way communication between parents and staff.

Your child will also have their own learning  journey which is a record of their progress and achievements and a link between home and nursery.

Your child’s learning journey is available for you to view at any time. We also have online learning journals that you can access daily.

Food and drink

We adapt our menus to suit the younger children in the baby rooms. We closely follow your routine at mealtimes

We ask that you provide your own ready made up formula for your baby  a supply of nappies or pull-ups and baby wipes.

If your child comes to nursery early we can provide breakfast up until 8am.

Of course you are welcome at any time to come into the nursery.

Babies  who take a nap remain in the same room as staff at all times and are fully monitored when sleeping.
