The Daisy Room - for babies aged 6 to 18 months

Babies are welcomed into the Daisy Room from six months of age, into a homely and family like environment with carefully selected equipment designed with your child in mind.

Constant movement is how babies learn to develop coordination of the body and brain. The Daisy room has a baby gym that will enable your child to acquire balancing skills through a range of actions such as sliding, bouncing and crawling.

Babies in this room will be exposed to well planned activities and sensory resources, as they naturally learn through discovery and play. Activities such as sand, water, messy play and treasure baskets will be accessible throughout the day.

Dr Maria Montessori was a strong believer that children need to be exposed to real life natural objects. Inspired by this theory Elinor Goldschmied developed treasure baskets giving the children the opportunity to play and explore with natural objects.

The overall aim of the activities in this room will: 

-  Encourage babies to use their senses
-  Practise and refine their motor skills and hand eye coordination
-  Develop attention and concentration span
-  Make simple choices and develop preferences

Babies in the Daisy Room will get to enjoy our secure and safe garden with a range of activities that replicate the indoor environment.

We understand that diet has a major impact on your child. Staff will work in partnership with parents to ensure dietary requirements are met and support is given during weaning and introduction to new foods.

Your child will be allocated a key person. This ensures consistency of care. Allowing the child to form attachments and feel secure whilst away from home. The key person will work in partnership with parents to follow and understand your child’s routine and give daily feedback.

Babies in the Daisy room will be able to participate in music and movement and yoga sessions.
