Baby Room

Our specialist baby house is a self-contained unit consisting of a large, spacious multi-function area that incorporates all areas of learning, a creative room, a cosy heuristic sensory room and a large tranquil sleep room. The Baby unit also has its own soft surfaced garden area complete with an outdoor learning classroom, meaning the children can enjoy fresh air and the outdoors even with our great British weather.

At Harrison we believe babies are active learners from birth and by providing the right environment and adult support we encourage their natural curiosity and creativity. We provide a safe, caring environment that is rich in learning experiences. To stimulate the babies senses we provide a multi-sensory environment with lots of tactile sensory activities appropriate for the ages and stages of development of the babies. We incorporate the Early Years Foundation Stage as a framework to plan activities. Our team encourages the babies to develop first skills i.e. crawling, sitting, and walking through play and activities.

Your baby will be assigned a key worker who will be responsible for all their daily needs i.e. feeding and changing. Information regarding your child’s day is recorded on daily diary sheets which are given to parent/carer at the end of each session. Your child’s progress and development are recorded in a Learning Journal which is discussed with parent on Parents Evenings. Any worries or concerns over your child can be discussed with your child’s keyworker.

We work in partnership with parents to ensure continuity of care at home and nursery. We aim to create a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere in order for the babies in our care to thrive. Everything we do is designed to give your baby the best possible standard of care.
