Foxcubs and Butterflies: Babies

Caring for our youngest children, our two baby rooms provide a calm, cosy and caring place to grow.

Caring for babies from 6 weeks old, we work closely with you as your child settles into the room. We will follow your home routine, to provide consistency for your child with feeding and sleeping and our team will build a close relationship with you so that you will have peace of mind when you drop your baby off at nursery.

We have two baby rooms, one of which is designed to provide a peaceful and cosy atmosphere for younger children as they start to grow.


A stimulating environment

Your child will benefit from two rooms designed to help their development as they grow. 

Younger babies are able to enjoy a quiet and cosy room with toys, displays and activities to stimulate them and encourage their curiosity. Older babies can enjoy free play, promoting their social skills and satisyfying their inquisitive minds. 


Supporting your child's development

Each day, activities are planned based around your child's needs. Your child's key person will track their progress and design activities to support their growth.

We follow the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage, which helps to stimulate and promote all areas of development through exploration and experimentation.


Encouraging outdoor play

Both of our baby rooms have direct access to their own outdoor areas, allowing your child to enjoy both indoor and outdoor play. These self-contained spaces are designed with this age group in mind.

In both rooms, the outdoor area includes a covered deck which allows your child to enjoy outdoor play whatever the weather.


A dedicated team

Caring for your child and supporting them as they grow, we have a committed team of nursery nurses specifically trained to care for this age group.

Our staff are based in the room permanently to provide your child with consistency and continuity. This includes your child's key person, who will know their individual needs and support them as they grow.

Following your routine

In order to provide consistency for your child, we will work closely with you to follow your child's routine and adapt as it changes. Upon joining the nursery, we will sit down with you to put together a care plan to help your child settle in and ensure a smooth transition to nursery.
Eating

Meal times are an opportunity for social development and children sit at the small table to eat, with chairs and low highchairs available as appropriate.

We will always follow your child's ever-changing feeding routine at home and will fully cooperate with the weaning process. We provide cow's milk formula and parents are welcome to provide breast milk. Our nursery cook produces delicious, freshly prepared meals on site for older babies.

Sleeping

We have a dedicated sleeping area with cots, which provides a quiet and relaxing place for our babies to sleep during the day. Working with you, we will follow your child's sleeping routine at home to ensure consistency.

You child is allocated their own linen, which is provided by the nursery and you are welcome to provide your child's own comforter if needed.
