Baby & Toddler : 0 – 2 years
The Baby Room is separated into different areas according to the developmental stage of the children and there is also a separate sleep area where they can rest as needed. This self-contained unit provides a relaxed but stimulating environment that will encourage your child to feel secure and settled with us at the Ark.
Within the room the activities are planned with consideration for the age and stage of development of each child. As the children progress they will become increasingly involved in more group-orientated activities and be introduced to the concept of individual responsibility and social interaction through group play and mealtimes. Parents are given a record at the end of each day with information about their child’s day, including nappy changes, sleep times, etc. Weaning takes place within this room and we work closely to introduce varied foods according to the routines and preferences of each family and in line with government recommendations.
