Our babies are very important little people who are changing and learning new things every day and with minds like sponges now is the time to offer as many new experiences as possible through exploring and using all their senses. At this age babies will begin to develop a sense of routine, so it is very important to us that parents and staff communicate to ensure a consistent routine is being followed both at home and in nursery. Staff will stimulate your baby’s curiosity through using both the indoor and outdoor environments as well as using both natural and manmade resources. In the Baby Butterflies room we have a separate outdoor play area to the older children, where the babies can explore and crawl around to their hearts content! We do take the babies out in all weathers as this is part of the curriculum we follow which encourages children to learn about seasonal changes and gives them an opportunity to explore in different weather e.g. rain, snow, wind, sunshine etc.
Every child in the Baby Butterflies will have a daily message book which is used to write down your child’s daily routine and what they have enjoyed as well as being a useful tool for you to communicate with the staff looking after your child.
The staff ratio in the Baby Butterflies room is 3 babies to 1 adult.
