Flopsy Bunnies welcomes babies up to 17 months
In our baby room you will find dedicated staff who are experienced in looking after the youngest members of our little community. They will be treated with gentleness and respect and nurtured with kindness and a thorough knowledge of child development. When your baby enters the nursery, staff will work with you to make sure that his/her routine is disrupted as little as possible and will be happy to talk to you on the phone should you be worried about him/her or just want to know what he/she is doing. Daily feedback will be given throughout his/her stay with us so you will not miss out on any of his/her little achievements, and a digital camera will never be far away in order to present a pictorial record.
Babies of this age are developing fast and the activities provided reflect this; there are mobiles, rattles and teethers for the youngest babies, treasure baskets for the ‘sitters’ and furniture that is safe for the crawlers to pull themselves up on. There is also a baby gym to practice manoeuvring steps and slopes, mirrors for self-examination, musical toys, pop up toys and others which require the child to push, turn or pull knobs and buttons in order to elicit a response. Nursery rhymes, action songs and finger plays are beginning to be learnt at this age and books are always available to look at individually or with a favourite adult. Staff in Flopsy Bunnies are also trained in baby signing and use it together with language as an aid to the babies understanding.
“My four year old joined Footprints after years at another nursery. She has never been so happy, engaged and stimulated in a childcare environment. She settled in very quickly, which is testament to the warmth of all of the staff. The variety of activities available to the children is fantastic. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough! “
‘Our son absolutely loved his years at Footprints, he was encouraged to develop his independence and social skills and prepare for school in a fun, caring and safe environment. Our daughter also now attends and is thriving in their care. We have complete trust and faith in Sandra and all the staff and truly believe the start they have been given here will benefit them forever’
"There is no doubt in our minds that your wonderful care, kindness, patience and guidance has helped to shape our daughter into the little person she is now, and the grown up person she will eventually become. We couldn't have wanted for a better start in her life - thank you."
