This room is designed for children under the age of 18 months, we offer care for up to 9 babies. This superb and tranquil room provides a warm and safe environment for even the tiniest of babies.
We work very closely with parents to help provide a positive routine, helping their baby to feel secure and happy within the nursing environment. To support communication between nursery and home life we keep a daily running record of your child’s care needs.
We offer a wide range of toys and activities specifically aiming towards developing children’s senses. We enjoy simple group activities such as singing and music play. They are often taken out for walks in the buggies and are wrapped up well if it is cold. We believe that our children should engage with the local environment as much as possible.
We ask that parents could supply their child’s own nappies, baby wipes and creams if needed, this helps to maintain our high standard of hygiene. Some parents bring new each day or have a basket with their child’s belongings.
Hawthorns are proud to now work with an online system. The children’s key persons complete observations; taking images, videos or art work and supplying an explanation of what the child is completing. This is then access able to both parents for them to log into the system and have a browse of what their child gets up to in their life at nursery. We also run regular open evenings to give parents the chance to chat, view your child’s work and discuss their development within the nursery.
