Babies are given opportunities to explore and have some of their first experiences doing sensory and tactile based activities.
Mealtime menus are adapted to cater for each child less than one year old to help support with their weaning stages. Any dietary requirements and allergies will also be discussed.
We provide settling in visits to all children before they start their adventure with us to ensure each child becomes familiar with the environment and the staff, in particular their assigned key person. During this time we will discuss your child’s routine, likes, dislikes and you will be provided with information that will help you as a parent in this transition, too.
As your child grows we will discuss with you when we feel they are ready to transition into the next room, this is sometimes done earlier depending on each child’s stage of development. All transition visits are done during the child’s day(s) at nursery.
