The baby room at Four Seasons at Spectrum
Our baby room is a warm but spacious environment for children aged from 3 months to 18 months which encourages children to explore their physical development. Our friendly staff take the time to get to know you and your child ensuring the transition from home to nursery life is smooth and stress-free for your family.
The room is divided into specific areas such as an eating/messy play area and a soft cushioned section for our youngest children to interact and build close, trusting relationships with staff and other children. The room also has various walking aids and push along toys to encourage the children to build on their own independence and confidence. Children explore their hand to eye co-ordination and fine motor skills at this stage, so this is an ideal time for children to start feeding themselves and experiment with using cutlery.
The baby room also provides an opportunity for children to be creative, using arts and crafts which are displayed around the nursery. Other resources, such as holistic play baskets, puppets and dressing up also help to stimulate a child’s communication with staff and other children. As the foundations for good communication skills are being built at this stage, every opportunity to help children develop their communication skills will be explored. The children have access to a separate sleeping area which offer sensory areas, individual cots and soft lighting to help your child into a gentle slumber.
