Baby Explorers, purpose built and great fun

Baby Explorers

Our lovely baby room provides a calm and caring environment in which to nurture the young babies in our care.

ChildsPlay will ensure that our experienced and qualified staff team shower your babies with lots of love and attention and provide the resources necessary to stimulate and encourage them to learn, develop and to explore in a safe environment.

Benefiting from an open plan play room, the babies love investigating in the sensory area with lots of

tactile experiences, treasure baskets to explore and they are able to express themselves through art and craft activities. A lovely cosy area is dedicated to communication and language as our Little Explorers can snuggle with their Key Person and enjoy a favourite book or join in singing nursery rhymes.

At meal times the babies and staff sit together to eat, giving the babies a social experience.

An enclosed space in the garden provides the babies with lots of fresh air and outdoor experiences, all within a secure area. Age appropriate play equipment is available for them to explore giving them challenges they need to master, enabling them to grow in confidence.
