Our 0-2 room provides a big space for your little ones to explore. Baby Room offers a variety of open ended play experiences, from pots and pans to construction, sand and water play and lots more which are put into place through in the way of enhancements and activities that are taken from children's interests on a regular basis.
We have a defined messy area in which children are able to explore lots of different textures using all 5 senses. These activities include, water, slime and jelly among others. We will also support their physical development by pull up bars around the room and by the staff putting resources out that will encourage the development from sitting, crawling to walking. We have recently redeveloped our Baby Room (September 2017) by extending the room and creating a separate 'snug' area in which children can experience a soothing atmosphere to build relationships with key workers and take themselves off into the cosy environment for a much deserved rest from all the new learning.
Outdoor play is vital for baby's development, here at Explorers we promote this through our own baby garden that is located just outside our room. This area offers heuristic and messy play through our large walk-in sand pit, mud kitchen and water area. The garden is half artificial grass that enables textures for the children to feel. We have a hut area in the centre of the garden which is used for sleep time in suitable weathers and for song or story time.
We have 5 highly motivated practitioners in the 0-2 rooms that pride themselves in making yourselves and your little ones feel safe and secure. It is extremely important to us. All practitioners within Baby Room are Paediatric First Aid trained and two practitioners hold their Level 2 Safeguarding qualification.
