Within our baby room there is a large heuristic area for the babies. The heuristic area encourages the children to develop their natural curiosity and investigate using all their senses. Babies play with the treasure baskets to explore familiar and unusual natural objects. Our baby room is bright and has lots of natural light so the babies enjoy looking out of the large windows. All our babies benefit from having a close bond with their key person and they ensure all their emotional and physical needs are met.
As the children are developing their language we love to sing nursery rhymes and action songs every day, the children choose their favourite story sacks and enjoy taking part in the story. The children love to experiment with media and materials, squeezing and feeling media such as paint, gloop, dough and bubbles. Staff support children’s repeated patterns of play as they learn to express themselves through physical action and sound.
