Baby Owls (0-2 Years)
Your baby will start their learning and development journey with us at Baby Owls – our dedicated room for 0-2years.
We know every child is different and our expert team at Baby Owls is fully-qualified to give parents and their children the flexibility and attention they need to make the transition from home to nursery care as smooth as possible.
Your child will be matched with a Key Worker and a Buddy, who will ensure your child’s wants and needs are catered for, and they will be on hand to give you verbal and written updates about the new and exciting things your child has learnt during their time at Chestnut House.
The focus in Baby Owls is on play, using a variety of natural materials, wooden play equipment and a range of sensory-stimulating toys, furnishings and textures to allow for gross and fine motor skills to be developed in whatever zone.
Through singing, dancing and verbal communication, our expert team will also ensure that babies are given space and encouragement to enjoy tummy time, crawling and assistance with standing and walking too.
With the help of the on-site cook, freshly prepared hot and cold meals will also ensure that babies have all the nutrition and hydration they need to prepare them for their day at Chestnut House.
Towards the child’s second birthday, the team will work alongside senior staff and parents/carers to decide if a child is physically and emotionally ready to move into the Funny Frogs 2-3 room.
During this time, children will go on visits and regular longer stays before making the full transition to Funny Frogs, where parents/carers will then be introduced to a new key worker and the team members.
