Babies Environment (Discoverers)

The Baby Room is full of sensory toys, textures and enchanting “bits and bobs”. In the early stages of a babies development they are mostly exploring the world around them, so it is important that they experience a range of materials, objects and sounds. Unlike their ability to hear, which is fully developed by the time they are born; babies do not fully develop their sight until a little later. The Black and White area helps them to distinguish between shapes and visual objects in these early days.

A dedicated sleep room allows for your child to rest at any given time in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Calming music will help them to sleep, increasing brain activity during rest, which is believed to stimulate the mind. Our cots are made with Silk Mulberry quilts. Your baby can’t tell us when they are hot or cold so these thermo-regulatory sheets ensure comfort at all times.

The rooms also feature pull up bars, low level furniture and even their own little gym to help babies stabilise while they practice their moving and walking.

While most of the room is a wide open space with lots of natural light, our dark and cosy sleep room allows for your child to rest at any given time in a comfortable, relaxed environment.

Like all age groups, the babies will also benefit from the use of our all weather indoor/outdoor play space and it’s amazing jungle gym, as well as outdoor trips to extend their learning beyond the nursery and into the wider world!
