Babies (4-12 months)

At Twinkles Creche & Montessori our youngest children are cared for in our cosy and warm baby room with fully qualified staff. We care for a maximum of 5 babies in this room.  Thus, babies benefit from plenty of 1-to-1 time and loads of cuddles too!

Our focus is on comfort and we offer a homely atmosphere where babies are encouraged to start to explore their surroundings. Their activities will include singing, nursery rhymes, sensory play and helping to stimulate your baby with different shapes and colours. Babies’ needs are met in all areas of safety, physical development and nutrition.

We promote a closer relationship between our baby room staff and parents, to give parents confidence that we will fulfill their child’s needs. Each child has his or her own diary where staff give details of their babies daily activities. The staff are constantly available to parents during our opening hours in person or by phone. Parents will need to provide all of their baby’s requirements i.e. made up bottles, food, nappies, wipes and sudocream, etc.

Availability: We offer full-time places only for babies. Part-time half days options are not available.

Staff: All our Babies staff are fully qualified and experienced in childcare.

Numbers: This is a large room where 1 member of staff cares for 3 babies.

Routine: As every baby’s needs and preferences are different, routine in this room differs from child to child as we try to maintain the routine babies have at home. 

During the day we make sure our babies:

  • Create a strong, affectionate bond with our staff.
  • Get lots of affectionate love and care.
  • Drink plenty of liquids.
  • Enjoy their food.
  • Get the sleep needed.
  • Enjoy the company of their little friends.

Development/Program and Curriculum:

During this early stage we observe babies intently to make sure that they meet their developmental milestones within a reasonable deadline.

During their time with us, babies spend valuable time on the floor along with our staff as they enjoy the many age appropriate activities we plan to implement for them.
