Curriculum Stages :

 

 

 

 

Babies:

 Baby Room:  Each baby has his or her own cot. Baby soft toys and attention of staff at all times.
Babies grow and develop rapidly during their first year. They begin to gain control of their bodies and become increasingly mobile. They learn about language by listening to adults talking and they start to make sounds and eventually their first words. They need close loving relationships with adults so that they feel safe and secure.

Our baby room offers a suitable environment where babies can play, rest and sleep. Our staff devote uninterrupted time to playing and talking with your baby. Interactions, talking and singing are really important at this stage to support your baby’s language development and to make them happy and contented.

Your baby’s key person will ensure that routines such as nappy changing and feeding and settling to sleep are opportunities for ‘one to one’ time, and are consistent with your routines at home.

 

 Toddlers:

Toddlers have array of toys and activities to stimulate their mind and to explore new ways of life and participate with other children.

Parents are assured that their children however small, will be loved and cared for whilst keeping in mind the values and traditions of home.

Children can also have fun pretending – dressing up and playing with dolls and teddies. They develop their physical skills on ‘sit and ride’ toys, pushing trolleys and our ‘Community Playthings’ play gym.

There are lots of puzzles, shape sorters and games to enjoy while they develop their fine motor skills.We consider it important to have close contact with parents for individual needs of every child.
