Our Sunflowers area is designed to meet the needs and encourage the developments of Babies and Toddlers between the ages of 3 months and 2-2 ½ years. We have designated areas for the youngest children, which are bright and stimulating with soft, safe clean materials. Cots are provided in a quiet area for resting times and separate baby-changing facilities are used.
We actively encourage parents of young babies to adapt the child’s daily routine to their home life requirements. We then reflect this routine at nursery, with regards to sleeping and feeding times and the kinds of foods given. As the babies get older, in preparation for their next stage of development and to encourage independence, children are encouraged to follow nursery routines more and more where suitable.
Parents receive feedback on their child’s day in a written report detailing bottles and food consumed, number of nappies wet or soiled, sleep times and activities enjoyed.
Meals and nappy changes of children are recorded on to charts and are shared with parents at the end of the day.
