The importance of a calm environment
Our baby room cares for children of the ages 0-2 years old. The room is located upstairs, above the Toddler room benefiting us with a large open space for movement. The space is calm and peaceful,with provision that stimulates learning to be inquisitive whilst supporting the babies emotional well-being. We see our environment as a ‘third teacher’ allowing practitioners to spend time watching and following the babies interests, encouraging them to use their senses to explore open ended resources and by really getting to know them individually.
Parent partnership is very important to us
Our Baby team have the privilege to enjoy meeting each child’s needs, understanding how babies interact and develop and to extend their learning appropriately. We support the parents as much as we do the child, reassuring you by earning your trust and confidence in that we will always have your babies interest at heart. Communication is key and what we are great at, forming a strong partnership with each and every family to ensure we all have an enjoyable day. We make time for handovers with parents, we use Daily books to document in detail all relevant information and organise parent evenings annually to imbed our partnerships with parents.
The attributes our practitioners naturally obtain in the baby room are to be caring and attentive at all times, with soft tones of voice, positive facial expressions and body language, with warmth and sense of security, bringing out the best in each child they care for. We take great satisfaction in knowing how much of a difference we really make in each and every child’s lives, especially in 0-2 years.
