This is our Baby Room in here the children are aged from 6 weeks to 2 years old, the ratio in this room is 1 adult to 3 children. In the baby room we provide a stimulating environment, we have designed it to make it a ‘home from home feel’. We have made the environment bright for the children to explore and have the right equipment for the children to support their physical development for when they start to pull themselves up ready for walking. We also have a black and white area within the Baby room as babies respond well to simple and bold patterns. By having these it supports the babies visual development.
We have a cozy area in the baby room so that our children can read their favourite book and there are also personalized books so that they can look at their pictures of themselves in nursery and also their family.
