Welcome to Playpen Nursery

Ladybirds (0-2 years)

Our baby room is designed to create a calm, yet stimulating environment in which very young children have the opportunity to develop new skills.

The room allows for up to 9 children at one time, with 3 full time members of staff. (child:staff ratio is 1:3) following guildines set out in the Pre-Birth to Three Framework, the children are encouraged to join in with group activities e.g. singing and small circle games, which helps to develop their communication skills while learning to share and take turns. The children also enjoy a variety of messy play experiences which helps them to explore their senses and become creative. The children have access to the outdoors both within the nursery garden and further afield in the local community. The babies particularly enjoy trips on the bus to the library and other places of interest e.g. the bus/train station.

The ladybird room has a seperate relaxation room which has cots and mats if the children wish to nap during their session, each child has a daily diary which is filled in by the childs key worker. This records important information form the childs day which you can read though at home. In the diary there is space for parents comments, please feel free to add anything which you feel we need to know.
