From 6 months, all babies are introduced to our infant educational activities programme in our specially designed baby room. Activities include, Music & Singing, Reading, Arts & Craft, Water play, Messy play , Sensory play, Heuristic play, Treasure baskets, In touch with living things: flowers and plants.

To provide for heuristic play, we collect natural materials like fir cones, conkers, seashells, and pebbles, as well as ribbons, short lengths of chain, and ‘found’ objects like curtain rings, jar lids, sturdy cardboard tubes, the circles from inside sellotape, and empty cotton reels. Between sessions staff maintain the supplies, checking for cleanliness and safety, discarding unsuitable items and collecting new ones.

The ratio of staff to babies is 1:3 allowing us to provide the personal level of attention that all babies demand at this stage.

Each baby is given a ‘Care Diary’ to record all their activities, what they’ve eaten, how they’ve slept and what they may or may not have done in their nappy!

Prior to starting we will discuss with you, your baby’s care plan and any concerns or worries you may have. It is our intention to continue with the routine you have in place at home and welcome any or as many suggestions you have to help baby feel secure and happy.
