We encourage our babies to learn about the world through their senses by using music, rattles, paints and toys. When they are old enough they are free to sit up, crawl and stand at their own pace. Our babies are also allowed to interact with older children under careful supervision.
We make sure that all our activities and toys are age appropriate. Each age group has its own room, with the 0-2yr olds in the Jellybabies Room.
We have our own cook and kitchen facilities at Learning Ladders which has been awarded a 5 star food hygiene rating. The menus vary and are displayed on the notice boards for parents to view. We cater for breakfast, lunch and tea and can accommodate a wide variety of special dietary needs so you can be sure your baby will be well fed. Parents are asked to please bring formula milk.
Child Safety and Medication
The safety of your baby and others is of primary importance. For this reason we ask you to not bring your baby to the nursery if they have a contagious disease as it can be a danger to other babies.
Please remember that when you bring in medication we need your signature to administer it. It is very important that we have clear instructions on dosages. We only administer long-term medication such as asthma pumps. We do not administer Calpol. We will give tail end of antibiotics.
Dress Code and Extras
Please do not dress your baby in expensive designer clothes. Some of our activities can be extremely messy! If necessary, bring a change of clothes, nappies and bibs. Children may need a coat for outdoor play and walks in the cold weather.
