Nursery

Our teachers provide a safe and loving environment where infants can grow and develop early independence. Inspired by the work of Emmi Pikler our Nursery room is an environment which allows children to discover as much as possible on their own, with the comfort of knowing that their teacher is close by.

Dr Emmi Pikler defined seven guiding principles for caring for babies:

Babies need our full attention - especially when involved in caring activity times. We need to be calm and operate at a slower, relaxed pace around babies. Caregivers need to take the time to make nappy changing, feeding, bathing and dressing, unhurried and pleasant quality time with the baby as a respected, active partner.
Work together with babies on activities which includes plenty of talking about what we're doing and giving them the time to respond.

Never put a baby into a position which they cannot get into by themselves. This includes keeping restraining baby care equipment like walkers and highchairs to a minimum.

Allow babies uninterrupted time for play. This gives them time to experience independence and we see the beginnings of self-esteem and confidence as a result.

Pay respectful attention to babies' communication cues.

We're very happy to discuss our philosophy around care of babies. We never lose sight of the fact that we are caring for your child in partnership with you.
