Tucked away from the hustle and bustle is a tranquil world for the babies in our Baby Room.
The Baby Room caters for babies aged from 3 months to 2 years. They are looked after by a qualified and experienced team of staff lead by Amy, the Room Leader, in their own quiet and stimulating room.Filled with soft cushions, feeding chairs, cots, colourful displays, mobiles and a sofa to create a home from home environment.
The Baby Room has its own garden area that can be access throughout the day for outoor activities. This is a happy place with plenty of time for hugs, cuddles and care in a safe environment for those who are crawling or have mastered the art of walking!
We provide exciting daily activities to feed young imaginations and we can guarantee plenty of loving care for all of our babies.
As the children in the Baby Room approach their 2nd birthday they are gradually settled in to our Todddler Room . The setting in session will only take place when both parents and staff are confident that the time is right.
A ratio of 1 member of staff to every 3 children aged 3 months – 2 years is observed at all times.
We request that parents and carers provide their child with a diary/notebook each time they attend nursery.
Your childs Keyworker will complete the diary daily and include information about mealtimes, sleep times and activities your child has taken part in along with any details about their day. The diary system is not designed to replace daily chit chat between parents and nursery staff, but to build links between home and nursey and to help pass on messages.
Another way we share information between home and nursery is through our SeeSaw App. Each child has an online SeeSaw account, where staff members post pictures and videos of your childs day, along with individual messages to parents/carers. Parents/carers can make the choice to share this account with other family members who can also view what is being posted by the nursery staff.
Playworks Early Days Nursery has a Facebook page where we regularly post about future events and share other important information.
Newsletters are produced throughout the year and are shared with parents/carers via your childs SeeSaw account. Papercopies of the newsletters are also availabe in the Reception area of the nursery.
