Children enjoy lots of cuddles and re-assurance throughout the day, play with toys and sensory equipment which encourages their early stages of development. Babies language development is encouraged through conversations with them and lots of singing. Their sensory development is also encouraged  and babies enjoy a variety of activities from soft visually stimulating toys moving onto more challenging activities as they become more adventurous.

 

As your child's mobility increases, they will be 'learning on the move' and will be given every opportunity to be creative and for their individuality to freely form. Children will enjoy playing with more complex toys and equipment as they begin to show increasing independence and obvious pleasure in moving, communicating and learning through play.

The Baby Room is a  large bright room for young children aged six weeks to 16mths approximately and is divided into two sections that allows for quieter activities as well as larger explorative play. There is a separate sleep room which is closely monitored and allows your little one to rest peacefully as required.

 

Babies are cared for by qualified Nursery Nurses.  It is at this age that your child requires that extra special care and attention, so we have created the perfect 'home from home' environment where he or she will feel happy and secure in warm and cosy surroundings. We aim to follow the same comforting routine that your baby has at home whilst enjoying a range of activities that support their development. Babies enjoy regular walks to the park and other ammenities. They also have their own nursery garden.

 

We offer a high level of care in our baby nest with each child having a Key Carer. This special bond that develops allows each baby's individual personality to shine through as they begin to communicate with those around them. Babies language development is encouraged through conversations with them and lots of singing, sensory development is also very important and babies enjoy a variety of activities from soft visually stimulating toys moving onto more challenging activities as they become more adventurous.

'We would like to thank everyone at Poppies for taking such good care of both of our girls. We would especially like to thank the baby room team for the early days and the time they put into settling Megan into nursery life! It has been lovely to see Megan grow from a very shy baby to a confident little girl and we  have all Poppies staff to thank for that! We will always be grateful to Poppies for the care they have given to our children over the past year and will miss you all! Mr & Mrs D. (parents)
