At Hedgehogs Nursery we welcome babies from three months onwards and offer a warm friendly environment helping them to make the transition from home to nursery with ease. We cater for your baby’s individual needs and keep the routine similar to that at home.
Prior to your baby starting at Hedgehogs Nursery we offer settling-in sessions to ensure that you and your baby are comfortable in the nursery environment before their first day.
Our fully-equipped baby unit provides a home from home feel. We provide plenty of opportunities for tummy-time activities, developing gross motor skills, along with interactions using song and rhyme.
Our babies enjoy plenty of time outdoors with regular walks around the local area and play time in our large gardens.
Activities are planned to ensure experiences reflect your baby’s interests, as set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS). Typical activities include; messy play, soft play, building blocks, creative artwork and outdoor fun!
We pride ourselves on good communication with parents and know how important the information we share is. A daily feedback sheet records all your baby’s meals, nappy changes, drinks and sleep patterns. We always take time to chat with parents when they drop off and collect their children and pride ourselves on building close relationships with parents.
Our bi-annual parents’ evenings allow us to get together for an informal chat and give parents the opportunity to explore the nursery. We send home art work and have a wide range of photos displayed to show parents what their children get up to when they are not around.
