Babies

news2Because your baby is used to a calm, warm and secure environment we’ve made our baby room a home from home, with a cosy décor and staff who believe in providing professional loving care.

We’ll also help your child to develop through different areas of stimulation and ‘learning through play’ – giving them plenty of praise and encouragement in the process.

What you’ll need to bring

  • Bottles need to be transported to nursery in a cool bag
  • Spare clothes
  • Creams, (sun cream, sudo cream etc)
  • Weather permitted clothes – coat, hat, sun hat, wellies etc
  • Comforters – blanket, dummy etc
  • Toothpaste, a toothbrush and a hairbrush

Sleep arrangements

In the Baby unit there is 1 cot room. This room is quiet, airy and peaceful. This cot room is used by the babies and toddlers. Older children sleep on mattresses in their rooms. Each child has their own sheet and blanket for sleep-time.  You can supply the nursery with your child’s comforter.  Rest assured, at least 2 staff stay with the children at all times plus the cot room has a baby monitor in each room and children are checked every 15 minutes.

Daily reports

When you collect your baby from the baby room you’ll be sent home with a personal daily booklet containing information such as sleep times, nappy changes, what your child has eaten, and comments on what they have been doing throughout the day.
