Babies Room

Welcome to the Babies room – this is for children aged six weeks to approximately 2 years.

Number of places

The Babies Room has spaces for up to 15 babies.

Staff

We have one Room Leader and four assistants all of whom have a Certificate iii or are working towards this qualification.

Programme

We try to create a warm and friendly atmosphere in our Babies Room.

We ensure that each child feels comfortable, safe and loved, by attending to their individual needs through the use of a Primary Caregiver System which helps children form bonds with their carers.

Babies stay in our room until they are approximately 2 years old then they gradually move into the Toddlers Room. Transition visits usually occur during December and January in preparation for their new room.

The babies sleep in the same cot each time (linen provided), with older children sleeping on mattresses in the sleep room. This prepares them for Toddlers Room.

Babies Room Routine

The routine in the Babies Room is flexible and we meet each individual child’s needs. We have a folder with all the routines which can be updated by parents from time to time as and when they change.

If there is anything that parents might feel is confidential information you are more than welcome to talk to a senior staff and/or the room leader.
