Babies 0-2 years
Every child is different and therefore with your support, we will tailor your baby’s introduction to best suit both your needs. The Rainbow Room has been purposefully designed to provide a warm, homely and stimulating environment with a minimum staff ratio of one highly qualified Early Years Practitioner to three babies. The experienced and dedicated staff in this room are Maddie and Janet who are supported by Aleisha.
The room itself has under floor heating and the space is divided into a number of zones enabling younger babies to observe and learn from those slightly older whilst having the space to crawl, roll or sit in comfort and safety. We have a separate sleep room with lovely wooden cots to ensure that babies have a safe and peaceful place to rest that is not too dissimilar to home.
Babies each follow their own feeding and sleep patterns closely complementing their home routine. Lots of one to one attention and encouragement enables each child to settle happily, developing their confidence and learning to enjoy social interaction.
All activities meet the babies’ developmental needs and are planned in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. Babies are provided with a variety of opportunities to explore and develop their physical and language skills, through music, stories, singing and a wide range of sensory materials.
Each baby has a dedicated Key Person who will work with you to ensure that their needs are met right up until they move rooms at approximately two years. We take lots of photos and videos, and document all your child’s learning on our online observation system.
For your piece of mind most of our staff have a paediatric first aid certificate and our key workers are fully qualified with bags of experience.
