4 Months - 2 Years
The baby room is the base for the youngest members of Bloomers Day Nursery. The activities planned here mainly allow the children to explore through their senses, through messy play, bubbles, and creative work with paint and glue. We also focus on their fine and gross motor skills and physical development using building blocks, as well as more physical activities. The baby room children learn through the 7 areas of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) which are:
Communication and Language
Social and Emotional Development
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Designs
This age group have access to the garden where they can explore the environment and nature. There are slides and small bikes for the walking children to master their physical development, and there are bubbles, water play, Lego and small toy animals for those who are not yet walking. The children in the baby room also participate in daily sessions of circle time, where they learn new nursery rhymes, join in with actions and also listen to stories.
Why Choose Us?
Staff in the baby room observe their key children and write reports for them, of which their parents/carers receive a copy. This is done every 3 months after the 6 week on entry report. In this way, there are clear indicators of how the children are developing at the Nursery. Staff are available to speak to their key children’s parents/carers if there are any concerns.
