A little bit about our baby unit…

Within the baby unit the staff work closely with parents to ensure that each child’s individual needs and routine is met throughout the day. A daily report book is completed each day explaining how much your child has eaten, change of nappies and what they have been doing during the day. Strong bonds and attachments are built up between the children and their key worker in order for the babies to feel secure in their nursery environment. A variety of activities are planned to support and enhance each child’s development.
