The baby room provides an environment for children to begin their early learning through sensory play. The room has designated areas for personal, social and emotional development, communication and language and physical development.
New born babies hear voices, can feel, smell and taste. Their vision however takes longer to develop, only detecting large contrasts between light and dark, or black and white up until 6 months. In fact, research suggests that high-contrast colours (black, white and red) encourage visual and physical development for babies. We have a Black & White Corner where young children can rest and explore with soft toys and listen to stories (from the age specific book corner) in an environment that specifically helps their visual development at the very early stages of development.
As babies develop, they love to explore. The colourful ball pit provides multiple sensory opportunities for babies to explore colours, practice their coordination and be physically active in a safe area.
The staff is completely focussed on the care of the babies at all times with all necessary baby facilities located at hand within the room itself. It also has a Milk Kitchen for the storage and preparation of feeds for further convenience.
The Moonlight Room has a no shoes policy, which means everyone who enters the baby room must remove their shoes to keep the room clean and hygienic for our little stars.
Additionally, extra activities including: Baby Yoga and Musical Movements are conducted in the Moonlight Room.
The Rainbow Room is a warm welcoming space for children of 2-3 years who have just begun to walk. The room is designed to explore the 7 key areas of learning and development in the Early Years Foundation Stage by encouraging children to take part in several planned activities.
The Sunshine Room is designed for 3-4 year olds with more structured and focused activities in preparation for the school Reception year, based on the 7 areas of learning and development in the Early Years Foundation Stage. We know the importance of proving 4 year olds with varied activities that encompass both psychological and physical needs to help children transition from nursery to school. Children are taught to read, write and basic maths. Additionally, children in the Sunshine Room will have yoga, Zumba dancing and computing.
While age specific class room-style rooms are available, we believe that children also learn from the ability to mix with different age groups, through mixed involvement of activities including celebrations. The Sunshine Room therefore also has a free-flow area for all ages and is a focal area for festive celebrations, concerts and plays.
