Our Nursery is bright and spacious proving an excellent environment for inquisitive babies to explore. Our daily routine is flexible, ensuring that each child has the opportunity to join in whilst also meeting the needs of our smaller babies by continuing with their home routine until around one year old.
We work with the parents to support each individual child's needs including bottle feeding, weaning and sleep patterns. We have purpose built cot room adjoining the classroom where babies can enjoy an uninterrupted sleep. Before moving up to our next room the children in Piglet Room enjoy a range of play which is aimed at supporting their development.
