Baby Room

Within the baby and 2-3 rooms staff are guided by the Pre-Birth to Three curriculum which identifies Rights of the Child, Relationships, Responsive Care and Respect as the key principles for effective practice.

 

Our baby room has been specially designed to provide a bright, warm, cosy and well equipped environment for babies from 6 weeks until they are around the age of 2 years, then they will then progress on to our 2-3 department.

 

We have a separate area adjacent to the baby room in order that your baby can enjoy the benefits of restful and undisturbed sleep. We also have a separate area for changing babies.

 

At TLC we know just how important quality childcare for your baby is to you and we therefore promise that we will do out utmost to care for your infant in the way that you want her/him cared for. Because of this we will follow as near as possible the routines that you have created in your home. In order that a relationship is built between yourself and your babies' carers, you will be welcomed into the playroom each morning so that you can chat with the staff and they can then follow on from your care.

 

We at TLC fully recognise that it is not easy to trust your infant to the care of another person and because of this we wish to emphasise that the staff in the baby unit have been carefully chosen for their dedication towards the welfare of children. The majority of staff in our baby room have childcare qualifications or are training towards such (students are closely supervised at all times) and, are therefore more able to provide your baby with the care, stimulation and love he/she needs.

 

The carers will ensure that whilst the babies are very young they are given pleanty of TLC and one to one time. We guarantee to ensure that your baby will have all their feed, rest periods, suitable play/sensory and stimulation towards achieving their developmental milestones.

 

As your baby progresses play becomes more identifiable and therefore the emphasis is on physical activity. At TLC we plan our specific toddler activities for ‘play with a purpose’. During this age and stage of development there are probably crawling to walking. By using toys such as trucks and trundle toys we can open up our big wide world for your children to safely explore and increase their physical awareness.

 

As your baby grows and develops they will have the opportunity to take part in a wider range of activities. Your child will also be taken on daily outings, weather permitting – or be given the opportunity to spend time in play within the baby rooms own garden area, the sand-pit area or in our large, well equipped and safety surfaced secure garden area.

 

All of our babies have their own personal record of achievements book in which we record each days account and more importantly any developmental milestone achievements they make. The Record of Achievement book will be given to the parent or carer as a keepsake when they leave the baby room.
