Babies

Babies aged from 3 months to approximately 18 months old are cared for in Yellow Room.

Each baby’s day is flexible, and each different. We will feed your baby expressed milk or formula supplied by you. Feeding and sleeping are gently worked into a routine to suit each baby’s individual needs and we encourage you to guide us as to your child’s daily routine.

The babies benefit from a wide range of daily activities, socialising with other children and familiar adults, listening and joining in with conversations and songs. There is plenty of space for physical play to kick and stretch, a firm but padded floor on which to learn to sit, crawl and walk safely, and toys specially chosen to encourage movement.

Mobiles, books, outings and interesting new objects are used to provide visual stimulation. Water, paint and other materials are used for messy play to develop tactile senses. Manipulative skills, such as holding, squeezing, rattling, turning and throwing, are developed by playing with specially chosen toys.

We believe that contact with older children is mutually beneficial, so periodically babies join the “bigger” children, and sometimes the “bigger” children visit the babies.

Of course, there are plenty of the all important cuddles, love and fun on offer throughout the day.
