Babies (6 mths – 2years)

Our baby room is colourful and stimulating and accommodates 12 babies aged 6 months to 2 years. We focus on tactile and sensory activities with our babies to encourage their development. There is also an adjoining milk prep room, nappy room and sleep room as well as an outdoor play area that is specifically for our babies.

A typical day in our baby room
Our babies individual routines are followed for feeding and sleep times. As they develop and we feel they are ready, we begin to progress towards our nursery routine.

The age restrictions on our three groups are only guidelines and can be flexible. If we feel your child is ready and would benefit from moving into the next group then through consultation with yourselves and availability we will do so.
