Babies (3 months – 2 yrs)

Your baby will have an individual, bespoke care plan drawn up and agreed with you, ensuring their daily routine at nursery follows your routine at home as closely as possible. The same key carers will look after your baby each day in our bright and spacious, baby rooms.

To welcome babies into the nurseries we offer a number of settling in sessions where parents are invited to stay or remain close by to ensure their baby is comfortable and settled before leaving them. [Alternative settling in procedure in place due to COVID – please ask for more information].
