About our St. Albans Baby Care Facility
Our Baby Unit has separate areas within Brock House Nursery School including sleeproom, changing area, and outdoor play area. We can provide for up to eighteen babies, most of whom progress into the main nursery at age 2 years. All our baby care staff have additional baby specific training so as to best support 0 – 2 year olds; we use a key worker system; and we maintain a ratio of 1:3. Our high calibre baby unit staff will contact you (or you can contact them) whenever it is appropriate for the well being of your baby. We have 2 parents evenings each year as well as less formal events – such as mulled wine and mince pies at Christmas!
We try to spend time outside with the children every day and take frequent walks within the St. Albans community to : eg nearby Clarence Park, St. Albans railway station, the library, and local shops. We supply the waterproof capes and jumpsuits so we can get out whatever the weather.
About Caterpillar Room: 0-1 Years Old
The Caterpillar room is for our younger (and less mobile) babies. We recognise the importance of all babies in our care being nurtured in a homely environment, and we encourage them to use and develop their natural curiosity. The baby rooms are each designed and laid out to best ensure the achievement of these vital baby development stages.
Our experienced baby unit staff understand that your child will develop and progress so quickly that you could feel upset by missing some of the wonderful and fascinating development stages that occur while in our care. Our nursery nurses ensure that this does not happen by talking to you every day, and keeping you fully informed of the days events.
