Dependent on the nursery you visit, our rooms are split into three or four age groups.
In this room the children are on a 1:3 ratio with a member of staff. In our baby room you will find a calm, soothing atmosphere where lots of one to one attention will be given to your baby by our very experienced and specially chosen staff.
Your baby will have a calm, cosy atmosphere, with a wide range of equipment to encourage your baby’s stimulation and development. We encourage outdoor play daily in our secure outdoor play area, separate from the older children, specifically for children aged 0 – 2 years.
Your baby will receive the highest quality care and attention to their individual needs. Consultation and agreement will be sought at each stage of your child’s development. Individual diary logs with details of your baby’s day will be provided for you each day using our online system EYLog, to keep you informed of your child’s progress, enjoyment, eating and sleeping routines.
Parents/grandparents and official carers are always welcome to spend time at the nursery and are encouraged to do so in our induction period during the first week of starting at the nursery.
Our Tinies room is all about exploration. We are focused on examination by the senses; touch, feel, sight, hearing and taste. We aim to encourage growth of inquisition and imagination. A fantastic and enjoyable age of inquisitive learners. We encourage outdoor play on a daily basis in our secure outdoor play area, separate from the older children, specifically for children aged 0 – 2 years.
During this time, your child will not only grow in stature but will also have a growth of independence. At times it seems difficult to separate the two, but we at St. Bede’s Childcare aim to encourage this growth in independence whilst providing an environment that is always safe.
It is important to allow your child to develop naturally, as an individual. We focus on this by providing a wide range of activities and toys for your child to explore, allowing them to learn new skills when they are ready to do so. We are here to support and encourage the children when they are tired or simply not in the mood.
Our very experienced and qualified staff play a vital role in getting to know your child’s character. Through detailed observation they allow our individuals to experience first-hand activities and experiences aimed to develop your child physically, emotionally and intellectually.
