Our dedicated baby room takes 3 month to 2 year old children with only six places per session. It is a self-contained, safe and secure space with it's own changing facilities. The babies have direct access to the room's own outside play area which includes wooden decking and an astro-turf lawn underlain with safety rubber cushioning. Both indoors and outdoors the babies have a cheerful and stimulating environment but due to the position away from the main nursery classrooms it is also a quiet and calm space.
The Little Stars Baby room is managed by Kath Smith who has worked at Coumes Spring for over 12 years and is one of our most experienced members of staff. She is ably assisted by Nursery Nurses Amy and Sarah who have both been here for six years each giving the children a lovely, stable and caring experience. The staff provide parents with a detailed daily report at the end of each session letting them know exactly how the day has been spent giving them peace of mind and supporting parents and child through their early milestones.
Whilst the babies follow a daily routine (mid-morning and afternoon snack, lunch, tea and nap times) there is plenty of time for a great variety of play that encourages the babies to investigate and explore their world. The baby room has toys such as soft play, sensory baskets and books, and the children do painting, singing, baking and creative activities.
