ages 6 weeks to 15 months
In our Nursery we have babies from 6 weeks to 15 months or 2 years maximum. The babies develop and learn from a large range of play and nurturing experiences.
In the Nursery, social and emotional development is a large part of our Nursery program. The staff in our Nursery, work in many ways to help develop these skills, and to make this transition to childcare as easy as possible for the babies.
We have made our Nursery room a very homely, baby orientated and friendly environment. We have artwork done by the children on display, which the children love to look at. We have calming colours on our walls to give a homely and relaxed atmosphere, our furniture and carpets are set out to ensure that the children have access to all toys and areas of the room.
Our staff are very nurturing and caring people. The staff give the babies as much nurturing as required. The staff take the time to develop a relationship with each baby, and will get to know each individual baby, what he or she likes and dislikes. Once the staff member and baby form a relationship/bond, the baby will have trust in the staff. The staff implement the routine which is used at home by the family. This helps the baby to settle, knowing his/her routine has not changed.
