Our Daisy Room (0-2) yrs
Daisy room is our baby room, which is situated on the first floor. We provide babies with what they need – a safe environment, rich with opportunities to explore, with books, songs, malleable and messy activities and a lot of listening and responding to their vocalisations and words. The Daisy room has a daily routine in their room but practitioners also follow the individual routines for the babies due to the nap times and milk feeding times being varied. Our staff ensures they take each baby’s personality into consideration and make your child feel settled and happy at Busy Angels.
All babies have their own labelled bed/cot, bed sheet and blanket and are assigned a key worker who will discuss your child’s day with you at the end of each session. We try to follow any routines that you have established at home and will complete a daily diary for your child, which tells you what your baby has done during the day-this includes sleeping time, meals, snacks, milk, nappies and their general wellbeing. We welcome your comments, suggestions and also other information about your child in the diary. Younger children are given plenty of stimulating activities and choice in order to get them used to the nursery environment, particularly during the settling-in period.
We place great importance on providing sensitive care with a variety of experiences to promote your baby’s emotional development and understanding of their environment. Interaction through speech and play is also important to create special attachments with adults and carers and to nurture a sense of security and well-being. We like to take part in a variety of activities throughout the day, including walks in the fresh air and going to local parks. Indoor activities take place in our well-equipped playroom and include creative and craft play such as painting, sticking, music and singing. All activities are structured around your baby’s individual needs and abilities in order to support their growth and development into healthy and happy children.
When your child turns two, you will receive a 2 years progress check report by the keyworker of your child and the keyworker will discuss that report with you and you can write your comments in this report too.
Aims of the EYFS progress check at age two:
- review a child’s development progress in the three prime areas
- ensure that parents have a clear picture of their child’s development
- enable practitioners and parents to understand the child’s needs and plan activities to meet them
- note areas where a child is progressing well and identify any areas where progress is less than expected
- describe actions the setting intends to take to address any developmental concerns (including working with other professionals where appropriate).
