understand that choosing the right care for your precious little one is an
extremely important decision. From the first time you visit we will work with
you to ensure that you and your baby are comfortable in our surroundings and
you are given as much information as possible to help you make an informed
decision. We want you to feel proud of your child care choice.
Every child is different and therefore with your support, we will tailor your
baby’s introduction to best suit both your needs. Our baby unit has been
purposefully designed to provide a warm, homely and stimulating environment with a
staff ratio of one highly qualified nursery practitioner to three babies.
The space is divided into a number of zones enabling younger babies to observe

really aid child development and therefore we will spend a large proportion of
each day outside, whether on buggy walks
along the promenade, around the lake grounds or in our baby and nature garden.
We have a dedicated sleep room where each child is allocated their own cot or
sleep mat, along with their own bedding. The sleep room has soft lighting to
create a restful atmosphere and sleeping babies are checked every 10 minutes..
Each baby has a dedicated Key Person who will ensure that their needs are met
right up until they move rooms at approximately two years of age. We
provide each family with a personal diary that records your baby’s day and
achievements. This is really a valuable form of communication and we encourage
