Nursery and Forest School

Baby Suite

  • 0 to 2 years
  • Staff to child ratio 1:3

This is where the journey begins in our nursery. We pride ourselves on the standard of care with all aged children but the transition from home to nursery at such a young age is imperative to be as seamless as possible.

Even though the nursery education starts from this young tender age it is imperative for us to make sure their routine and care stays the forefront of everything we do, and the rest will follow.

Getting it right

The routine of any baby is mirrored from home including sleep patterns, feeding stages and needs of just the smallest detail such as a comforter when sleeping.

We spend as many settling sessions as needed with our new parents just so we are prepared to care for their child in the way any parent would expect.

We feel that if we can get the care right from the start then any new baby will go on through the nursery feeling loved and cherished and ready to learn.

We are a listening ear, a support for new parents and a confident when needed.

Everything on hand

Our baby suite has everything the babies and staff need on hand from a purpose-built sleep room to play space, eating, messy and changing space. The suite has been development with ease of care for our babies so that we just need to concentrate on what’s important.
 

Baby garden

There is a designated baby garden within the main garden that is used during the warmer months.

The Routine

For this age group of babies, the routine comes from home and is mirrored within the nursery. The baby’s routine is at the forefront of the day and activities are built into the day surrounding the routine.

The meal plan and times are followed throughout the whole setting for the older babies within the room, but many are still bottle fed and that sits outside the normal food times.

  • Breakfast  served 07:30 to 08:30
  • Snack  served 10:00 to 10:30
  • Lunch  served 12:00 to 12:30
  • Snack  served 14:00 to 14:30
  • Tea  served 16:00 to 16:30

Key Person

You will be introduced to your child's key person as soon as the journey begins. The key person is responsible for completing your child's development records, doing observations and planning activities for your child's interests and needs. Often a child chooses their key person themselves by bonding with a certain member of the team.
