Caring for our youngest children, the baby room provides a calm, cosy and caring place for babies from birth to 12 months.
Dedicated care from a qualified team
In a safe and secure environment, your child is able to grow in a place full of love and cuddles, supported by a committed and devoted team of qualified nursery nurses who are specifically trained for this age group.
Our staff are based in the room permanently to provide your child with consistency and continuity. The ratio of staff to children is kept low, to ensure that your child's individual needs are met at all times.
Each baby is treated as an individual so that your child's unique needs can be met and their own personalities can develop. Your child will have a dedicated keyperson, enabling them to form close bonds, follow their progress and further their individual development.
An environment to stimulate your child
The room is designed to provide different opportunities for your child to further their development, based on their individual needs and progress.
Younger babies are able to enjoy our quiet, cosy area with soft cushions and toys, colourful displays and sensory toys to stimulate them and encourage their curiosity. Older babies can enjoy free play, promoting their social skills and satisfying their inquisitive minds.
Varied activities to promote your child's development
Activities are organised on a daily basis, ensuring that they are developmentally appropriate and encourage all areas of development through exploration and experimentation. Babies have free access to books, toys, treasure baskets and a range of equipment.
All learning opportunities follow the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance, which helps to stimulate and promote every area of development.
Looking after your child's individual needs
At this early age, your child's individual routine is integrated into the nursery day to ensure stability for your child and for yourself at home. We work with you and will always cooperate with your requirements.
Our team are available to offer developmental advice should the need arise.
Meet the Caterpillars team
We believe that mealtimes are an opportunity for social development and we have small tables with chairs and low highchairs for the babies.
We will always follow your child's ever-changing feeding routine and will fully cooperate with you during the weaning process when you feel your child is ready.
Our nursery cook provides delicious, freshly prepared meals on-site, using a variety of seasonable vegetables and fruit.
Our babies sleep in cots during the day. Your child is allocated their own bed linen, which is provided by the nursery and we are happy for you to provide a special comforter if needed.
We follow your child's individual sleep patterns and your recommendations on how long they can sleep for.
