Our Baby Room development strategies concentrate on learning through play, using messy activities such as jelly, custard & beans through to ribbons, scarves & feathers. Staff plan appropriate activities for this age range and work with the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS) on a daily basis. Babies are encouraged to begin verbal and non-verbal communication with both their peers and carers focusing on repetition and imitation.
We also provide the babies with heuristic and sensory opportunities through the use of treasury baskets to engage the baby’s senses and curiosities of everyday objects. Outdoor learning is catered for by regular outings, along with use of the nursery garden where we have equipment and activities to stimulate the development of your baby.
Babies are given a nutritious balanced diet which is prepared daily on site by our nursery chef. Younger babies are catered for as they are given puréed fruit/veg before they are introduced to meats and other food substances.
