We understand that choosing the right care for your precious
little one is an extremely important decision. From the first time you visit we
will work with you to ensure that you and your baby are comfortable in our
surroundings and you are given as much information as possible to help you make
an informed decision. We want you to feel proud of your child care choice.
Every child is different and therefore with your support, we will tailor your
baby’s introduction to best suit both your needs. Our baby unit has been
purposefully designed to provide a warm, homely and stimulating environment
with a minimum staff ratio of one highly qualified Early Years Practitioner to
three babies. We are proud of our high staff retention and large staff team,
our staff are passionate, dedicated and experienced;
we never use agency staff, so you know you will see the same faces day in day
is located on
the ground floor at Stationhouse, with direct access into a baby garden at the
rear of the property. The room itself has under floor heating and the space is
divided into a number of zones enabling younger babies to observe and learn
from those slightly older whilst having the space to crawl, roll or sit in
comfort and safety. We have a separate sleep room with lovely wooden cots to
ensure that babies have a safe and peaceful place to rest that is not too
dissimilar to home.
Babies each follow their own feeding and sleep patterns closely complimenting
their home routine. Lots of one to one attention and encouragement enables each
child to settle happily, developing their confidence and learning to enjoy
All activities meet the babies’
developmental needs and are planned in accordance with the Early Years
Foundation Stage Framework. Babies are provided with a variety of opportunities
to explore and develop their physical and language skills, through music, baby
yoga, stories, singing and a wide range of sensory materials. The room has a
homely feel with cosy carpeted areas allowing them to snuggle, roll, crawl and
walk, along with a vinyl area for messy play where they play with water, sand, paint and are free to explore and create their very own
pieces of art!
We believe that fresh air and the ability to see, touch and explore nature really
aid child development and therefore we will spend a large proportion of each
day outside, whether on buggy walks around the marina, lake grounds, in our
baby garden or in our larger front and rear gardens.
Each baby has a dedicated Key
Person who will work with you to ensure that their needs are met right up until
they move rooms at approximately eighteen months. We take lots of photos and
videos, and document all your child’s learning on our own
specially designed online observation system. This means you can keep up to
date with what they are up to anytime anywhere.
We provide all meals, nappies,
creams and sun creams. We only ask that you bring a change of clothes and your
baby’s milk. All our meals, including vegetable and fruit purees are freshly
prepared on site using locally sourced produce where possible. We cater for all
dietary preferences and requirements and will discuss this in depth with you at 'settling in'.
For your piece of mind 100% of
our staff have a paediatric first aid certificate and our key workers are fully
qualified with bags of experience.
