Our very youngest children are cared for in the Happy Hedgehogs in two dedicated cosy rooms (one for the younger babies and one for the older babies). These rooms have a calm home from home feel together with a separate and peaceful sleep room.
We understand that leaving your baby can be a difficult time for parents, so we make sure you feel secure in the knowledge that your child is cared for in a safe, stimulating and fun environment.
As your child’s individual needs are of paramount importance to us at Head Start, each baby has an individual care plan which you and their Key Person have agreed on; this will enable us to follow your wishes for their routine.
As parental preferences are individual, we ask you to provide your choice of prepared baby milk each session, plus some of your child’s nappies, wipes and cream (if required), which we can store at Nursery.
At the end of each session, our staff will speak to you describing your child’s day. Key information will be recorded in their Communication Book which you take home and return the next session.
Your baby will learn through positive interaction with their familiar carers. They will use all their senses to explore their environment both indoors and outside in order to develop their emerging skills.
