In the baby room we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS). We provide a homely, relaxed and welcoming environment for children 3 months to 12 months. A place where babies can form close attachments with their key workers to build up their confidence and emotional development.
The room is made up of different areas:
- Imaginary area
- Comfy area
- Exploratory area
- Physical play
These areas are changed accordingly to suit children’s ages and stages of development and to enhance planning and also children’ interests
The room is set up to promote independence and free choice making sure all developmental areas of the Early Year’s Foundation Stage Framework are available throughout the day. Focussed activities are carried out throughout the day Within the baby unit there is a separate nappy changing area with washing facilities and a kitchen area for preparing foods and heating bottles. Each child is assigned a key worker when they start nursery to help with settling in and to build secure attachments and friendships.
