Piglets

The baby room (otherwise known as the Piglets) is the beginning of a baby’s journey through the nursery.

The Piglets room cares for babies aged from 6 weeks to approximately 2 years old.

Each new child is encouraged to do gradual visits before they start to build a happy healthy relationship with their keyworker and familiarise themselves with the nursery environment, this will also include a home visit.

The staff provide consistency of care for each child by following their routine at home.

Babies are loved and nurtured and provided with a range of toys, equipment and activities in a stimulating environment.

The Gooseberry Bush believes children sleep better in the fresh air with it being far more beneficial for them. Each child will be allocated a pram or a cot to sleep in when they are tired through discussion with parents.

We encourage parents to allow their children to sleep outside in the garden, where they will be closely monitored by staff and CCTV at all times and checked every 10 minutes while they are sleeping. This is recorded on a chart and signed by staff, feedback is given to parents.

Baby staff offer baby massage sessions, please see Zoe for more details.

Staff ratio is 1 adult to 3 babies.
