THE BABY ROOM
Our focus first and foremost in The Baby Room is to provide a calm and warm emotional environment for babies where they feel loved and cared for.
During this important phase, babies are exploring the world with all their senses and their whole bodies and so the activities and experiences we plan with our babies’ support and encourage children’s strong exploratory impulses.
Babies build a picture of themselves from the way in which they are regarded and treated, particularly by those people who are closest to them.” (Dowling, M., 2005, Young Children’s Personal, Social and Emotional Development).The most fundamental part of our role with babies is to make sure that this picture develops into a positive sense of identity.
We do this by treating each child respectfully and as a unique individual. Tuning into the things that interest them and providing rich experiences which encourage development across all areas.
