In the Nursery Room we focus on meeting the essential needs of the children to enhance their growth and development. This includes things like sleep, specific dietary requirements such as puree food, and one-on-one interaction. We have a separate sleep room within the larger room that allows for uninterrupted sleep while still allowing staff to closely monitor those sleeping. This allows us to best meet the needs of your children. For these reasons, we believe that orientation is a very important time for young children and for parents. Every child has their own routine that you as their parent know and understand fully. Imparting this knowledge to us will help us to give your child the best possible care. We want to mirror what you do at home and that will assist your child in their growth and happiness. It is also an important time for you as a parent to establish a trusting relationship with us as your child’s educators. It also allows you to get to know our Centre, how we run and what we do.
We also focus on those important first developmental steps, such as crawling, walking, sharing and interacting with our peers. We have a separate outdoor play space that allows the children the freedom to play without the concern of older children in their space. This is all at the front of the building which allows the children to see the outside world. If you walk into our Nursery Room, you will most likely find us sitting on the floor with the children. We believe that the more interaction the children have with our educators, both one-on-one and in small groups, the more settled the children will be, because they have a tangible connection with the people caring for them. This makes for happy children, happy families and happy staff.
