Nursery care for Babies Ages 3 Months to 23 months

From the beginning...

Before your child joins Highfield Nursery, we’ll meet up to answer any questions you may have, and complete a ‘Baseline Information Form’.  We’ll ask about family members, sleep patterns, favourite toys, comforters, and other similar things, which provide us with a good idea of your child’s life at home, and about how they are developing in their early years.

For the first four weeks, we’ll be observing your child to further understand their current stage of development.  We will use these observations to build a ‘Learning & Development Record’, which will enable us to identify areas in which your child excels, and areas in which there require a little more help.

Each child is allocated a key worker who is responsible for day to day needs of their key child.  We operate 1:3 ratio to ensure sufficient care is provided

The Baby Room

The baby room is located in a purpose built baby unit, with heating & air con to keep the room as comfortable as possible. The room is decorated with bright colourful decorations, making it a fun and welcoming play room.

Here's a few things we get up to during the day...

The Messy Area helps is all about expressive arts and design. We use a sand tray, water tray, paint, jelly, beans, gloop, shaving foam, and sawdust to explore and understand textures. This enables creative development, and social development with staff and friends.

Story Corner has a comfy sofa, and is a place for our daily story time. This builds communication, language, and literacy skills.

The Music Area has lots of instruments from hand-bells to shakers and drums. We learn songs with actions, which build independence, communication, co-ordination, and skills in working together. 

The Role Play Area is a fun place to dress up. We have lots of costumes so the children can be Firemen, Nurses, Doctors, Police. This builds an understanding of society and the people in it.

Construction Corner has a range of building products including building blocks, Duplo bricks, and wooden bricks. These can be used to teach the curriculum in a fun way, such as counting, hand eye co-ordination, and imaginative play.

Small World is a place to let the imagination go wild. We have farms, dolls house, train tracks, and a host of other toys which helps children to understand the World. It's also great for social interaction and making relationships playing with friends.

Dinner table – We all sit together for dinner around one table to encourage interaction, and all children are taught manners and how to use cutlery. Each day, there is a choice of two meals, and we can accommodate special dietary requirements.  Fruit is served at breakfast, followed by Yogurt or Fruit Lunch. Tea is freshly prepared to ensure the 5 a day of veg. Healthy snacks are also available during the day.

Your Baby's Development Record

Our ‘Daily Communications Diary’ is a way that we can work with you to keep you up to date on what your child has been doing during the day. 

We record their meals, what activities they have been doing, and their sleep patterns to help keep you informed.  You can also use the ‘Daily Communications Diary’ to let us know anything you would like to share.

Parents evenings are held each term where we review a development report to aid your child's learning and keep you up to date with what we are doing to help your child.
