Babies

 Babies – Children under the age of 2 years

 

  • There are no more than 15 children in the baby area with a staffing ratio of 1 adult to every 3 children

  • The area is subdivided to allow very small babies to be safe.

  • All equipment, furniture and toys, are suitable for this age group.

  • There is also an outdoor area for playing.

  • There is a sleep area where children can be observed, a changing area for small babies and a toilet and sink.

  • There is a kitchen area where food can be prepared.

 

All the staff have a responsibility for a group of children.  Each child has a key worker who is the primary carer for the child.  They keep all records and assessments and liaise with parents and outside agencies where appropriate.

 

The day is structured around the needs of the children and individual children’s sleep and eating patterns are catered for.
