Staff within the room have good experience with this age group and are able to settle each child into nursery so they are happy in the home from home environment we offer. We discuss in detail with each parent their babies routine, as we understand that each baby has their own routine at home, which we follow whilst they settle and then gradually integrate them into the nursery routine as they get older. The children are provided with activities that encourage and promote their development in all areas with staff giving their undivided attention to enable all children to develop at their own pace. Our aim is to provide a friendly and caring atmosphere in a homely environment.
