In our Bunnies Room we have a maximum of six babies at any one time, we offer a selection of different sessions to support all your family needs. The ratio for this age group is 1:3 and the room has been specifically designed to meet all of your baby's needs.
We understand that the thought of leaving your baby at nursery can make you feel extremely anxious, however we aim to make the transition from home to nursery for both you and your child a happy experience. We encourage all parents/carers to follow our settle into nursery programme, this offers your baby several settle sessions before they are due to start their full sessions. We feel this helps build a special bond between us and your baby as well as, gives you the parent a chance to meet and get to know the Early Years Practitioners looking after your child as you get the opportunity to stay and play.
The Bunnies Room overlooks the main garden which gives your baby the opportunity to look out across our wonderful outside space, as well as observe the older children playing. The Bunnies room offers a rich learning environment with many different areas for your baby to explore and experience. The Bunnies and Hedgehogs rooms have a separate outdoor space which has a grass area where the children can play and lay on soft play mats. It also incorporates a sensory, planting and creative area as well as slides and ride along toys for the children to play on. The outdoor environment has been developed to maximise the awe and wonder of the natural world.
We ensure that we provide a home from home experience for your baby, therefore any routines you follow at home we will shadow during their nursery day. We feel that partnership with parents is a vital aspect to ensure that your baby is happy within the Bunnies. Each baby has a day book where all routines and parent correspondence are logged daily. Your child will have a secure online Learning Journey with a software called Tapestry where all planned activities, photographs, parent feedback, developmental milestones and next steps are recorded. We encourage all parents to be highly involved with their child's Learning Journey bringing together precious moments from home and nursery. Your child's online learning journey will have a secure individual log in.
