The stimulating provision and learning experiences are planned by qualified child care staff with reference to individual ‘Schemas’  (more below). The room is set up in such a way to encourage the children to make their own choices, promoting independence and social interaction.

In addition to providing a range of exciting and stimulating activities, we recognise the need for babies and young children to recharge their batteries through periods of rest and relaxation. For this reason, each room is able to offer facilities for the children to sleep and staff will work closely with parents/carers to ensure we follow your child’s home routine as much as we can.

Our staff are skilled in recognising that young babies and toddlers acquire knowledge and skills through first hand experiences, exploring and investigation using their senses.

Therefore, in all our rooms, we provide many opportunities, supported by staff, for the children to develop these important early skills through such activities as movement/physical play, heuristic play, sensory areas and treasure basket sessions.

The baby rooms operate a 1:3 staff to child ratio.
