The Baby Room - Looby Loos - Holmfirth
The Nursery has a baby room for babies from the age of 12 weeks to approx 18 months. There is a maximum of 12 babies with a minimum of 3:1 children to adult ratio with the continuity of staff a priority.
This is a bright and cheerful room which provides a stimulating but also relaxing environment for the babies. The emphasis is very much providing home from home care with lots of love, care and cuddles. We liaise closely with parents to ensure the babies routine is followed and they are provided with comprehensive information on their baby’s day at nursery. We have a number of settling in visits before the babies commence at nursery for us to begin building the important relationship with both the baby and parent.
Through lots of play and individual interaction from carers, babies are encouraged to explore the world of colour, shape and texture and to help in their first steps towards language development. We provide a large selection of toys including bricks, stacking toys, books, shape sorters and soft toys to encourage their gross and fine motor skills and coordination. Babies can take part in ‘baby ballroom’ through movement and music, we also have a sensory area with a variety of sensory baskets for babies to explore.
There is direct access to the dedicated outdoor play area next to our garden with sensory plants to enhance their senses.
The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework is used to plan for children’s individual development and next steps. All children have an achievement file detailing this with lots of lovely photographs showing your child enjoying their time at nursery.
Looby Loos is located between New Mill and Holmfirth within easy reach of all areas within the upper Holm Valley.
