Peter Rabbit Room
The Peter Rabbit Room is a relaxed, homely environment with a carpeted floor that is perfect for early walkers. With a cosy corner full of teddies and cushions, the babies have the chance to have some quiet time, as well as being able to play with toys that are changed regularly and are suitable for their age group. As high contrast images and colours are the easiest for babies to perceive, Baby Room has a black and white area that helps to calm and soothe the children, as well as improve their concentration skills.
There is a maximum of 9 children with 3 members of staff per day in the Baby Room, meaning it is much smaller and more personal than a lot of nurseries. This gives staff the time to cater for the children's unique needs and abilities, and spend one-to-one time with their key children.
To help babies with the transition from home to nursery, the staff follow the children's individual routines and cater to parental requests as much as possible.
In the Peter Rabbit Room, the staff know the importance of supporting children at an early age in order to help them reach their full potential throughout life. The children are encouraged to achieve their development goals through individual weekly activities that are planned by their Key Person, which link to their interests and abilities. Alongside this, the children are provided with the opportunity for frequent outdoor play, and 'messy' sensory activities. These keep the children stimulated, as well as allowing them to explore and learn through their senses.
