Baby Care

We care for up to nine babies aged 0-2 years with a ratio of 1;3. Each baby is cared for by the same staff to ensure positive relationships are being built to make it a home from home environment.

We strive to care for each baby as an individual and follow home routines during the day to ensure a smooth transition from home to nursery care.

Each baby will be provided with a daily record book for staff to fill in each day about what they have done i.e. meals, fluid, sleeps etc. The babies will be involved in a variety of activities including:

  • Messy play (playdoh, pasta, jelly, shaving foam)
  • Painting including mark making
  • Heuristic play
  • Investigatory play
  • Role-play
  • Sand play
  • Water play
  • Baking
  • Singing and rhymes

Babies also have a variety of books to look at during the day, and will be involved with all kinds of different play and experiences to enhance their development.

We also take the babies out to play in the garden at least twice a day depending on the weather.
