New Baby Area

Baby Room

Our babies develop incredibly well and continue to make significant progress in all areas of learning. This is mainly due to the high staffing ratios maintained within the baby area, which enables staff members to really know their key children to identify their next steps in their development and help them make massive strides towards the early learning goals.

All babies show a strong sense of security and feel safe. Our babies well-being is fully promoted and they thrive in all areas and are very much loved and cared for.

The large baby area consists of three spacious rooms which are all connected and are allocated to the babies offering lots of activities to aid and enhance their development.



The three rooms include a separate play room, sleep room and messy room. The main room consists of a natural sensory area, a black and white area and a green area for reading stories, along with various play mats for constructive play, problem solving and physical activities. The sleep room consists of cots for the babies to sleep comfortably during the day. Our creative room is used for mealtimes and also for activities such as painting, drawing, sand play, water play, and playdough etc. The baby area also includes their own dedicated en-suite nappy changing area.

All rooms are used as free flow play rooms where possible, enabling babies to explore all areas with ease.
