The babies also join in with many creative and messy play activities. We take prints of the child’s hands and feet and they are encouraged to paint with them both.
We provide a wide range of activities for the children to take part in: we use stand, corn flour, dough, pasta, and these activities are planned weekly. We display the children’s work around the room before we send them home.
In the baby unit we enjoy going outside in the garden, depending on the weather. The younger babies relax in pushchairs or play on a picnic rug with toys. The more mobile babies enjoy time on the swings or using the push along toys. In a summer when the sun is shining the babies like to play in the padding pool.
As a part of the baby units is a sleep room. The room is quiet and a rice relaxing area with cots or cradles for younger babies. We have sensory equipment such as bubble lamps and relaxing music to make it a calm restful environment.
