Welcome to Baby Quest
Our aim is to support families by continuing their already established routine to create a smooth transition into baby's first environment away from home.
The baby room is carpeted and provides a warm and cosy space with plenty of age- appropriate toys to explore. Each baby will have a key worker who will liaise with parents to get to know them well and understand what they enjoy doing at home so that they can plan for the individual child's likes and needs. The baby room team will plan activities to encourage babies to try new experiences and explore with their senses to develop and reach early learning goals. A separate sleep room is connected to the play space and sleeping babies are regularly monitored and within hearing distance. Milk and meals are prepared in the milk kitchen/feeding area with safe low chairs to support babies as they learn to feed themselves
We have a wonderful outside space and will take the babies outside to explore the wider environment from the safety of buggies. Babies with older siblings in the nursery may spend time with brothers and sisters in order to establish further the family bond.
Parents are welcome to spend time with their baby in the nursery or to view them while they settle on CCTV monitor in the office until they feel comfortable to leave. Settling in sessions are offered to encourage an easy and happy transition for all. When you collect your child at the end of their session we will share information on your child's day in a diary which will include nappy changes, feeds and play experiences. We value parents as their child's main educator and love to hear about your child's home experiences by encouraging parents to write in the diary so that we can share and support baby's home learning.
If you would like any support from our experienced and qualified team please ask, we are happy to help and have information on local agencies and support groups in our reception area. You are welcome to view any of our policies and procedures in the file in the reception area by the nursery entrance.
