Little Ladybirds 16 - 24 months
Our Little ladybird room opened in November 2015. We created this additional room to our setting to extend our provision for Babies.
This extension of our Baby room has allowed us to tune in to the developing physical and social needs of the babies as they grow and develop. We have created a relaxing and soothing environment and introduced stimulating areas that support new explorations. These include a role play area, sand/water tables and mark making easal.
Having two different rooms for our babies allows us to focus on their individual needs and create an environment suitable for their development and confidence. We can also look at where each child is best suited to individually. We have age ranges as a guidline. Childrens development is unique so we work with parents to see where they will settle best and then support transitions when the child is ready.
Our baby rooms come togther for group music sessions, some activities and walks to our local meadows.
Starting your journey at Woodpeckers
Making your choice for your child's care and education is very important. We understand that this choice needs to be considered carefully. Early years settings all offer different things. Here at Woodpeckers we pride ourselves on our family run setting that creates a nurturing environment for your little ones to grow and develop within.
Come and see our setting
Making your decision depends on a feeling that you get for somewhere. Let us give you a personal tour of our setting where we will tell you all about Woodpeckers. You can meet the staff, view our rooms, see our outdoor area and take the opportunity to ask us questions. Your children are welcome to accompany you too. Please call us to arrange a viewing.
What happens next?
We will invite you to attend an introduction visit and arrange settling visits. Home visits are also offered. Each child is different as to how they settle but we work with you to ensure this happens in the best way for you all.
We work using the key person approach. Each child deserves to have a special relationship with someone within the nursery and the key person approach effectively celebrates this. It provides you and your child with a sense of security. We will allocate a key person after initial visits to our setting.
We know that it is hard to leave your little ones but you can always stay in touch with us. We also record snapshots and observations of how your child has settled, plays and develops with us through electronic learning journals. These allow you and your family to see what they get up to when they are with us. Daily diaries are completed and travel to and from nursery with your child. Most importantly, it is our partnership with you, the parents and carers. We strive to create trusting relationships and great communication so that we can best support your child's journey with us.
