Twinkle Toes: Approx. 3 Months - 20 months

We have a beautiful nursery which provides a home from home
environment.  Our nursery is designed to create a
loving, warm, peaceful and secure environment for your baby.

We cater for a maximum of 13 babies / cots in our nursery. 

Each baby has their own cot and personal drawer.  We provide all
the linen and blankets in order to ensure that the
nursery is kept spotlessly clean at all times.  Our cots are sprayed
with non-toxic, baby safe and ecofriendly spray monthly in order to
get rid of all dust particles which can cause allergies, hay fever and
asthma etc.

The nursery is well equipped and babies can look forward to a
comfortable indoor play area as well as a large outdoor play area.
Our baby group is completely separate from our toddlers and age
appropriate stimulation and development is vitally important to us.
We have all the necessary equipment for our babies to ensure
that they can take part in all the fun activities once they are
capable of sitting and/or crawling.

Equipment such as rocking chairs,
bambino chairs, walking rings and toys etc. are provided
to ensure that your baby is stimulated at all times.

Our caretakers will do everything in their power to assist your
baby’s transition from infant to toddler.

We provide diaries for our 3 – 6 month old babies. This keeps a record of their feeding and sleeping times. Any special requests can be discussed should you need us to provide you with any further information

Our cots are fitted with voice/movement monitors

We have nursery rhymes and light classical music playing in
our nursery throughout the day in order to relax your baby and
provide a peaceful atmosphere.

We have our own kitchen facilities to ensure that the baby’s
food is totally separate.

Daily Activities:

All daily routines are set to give your baby a sense of
security and belonging.  We assess and meet each baby’s
personal needs.

As your baby’s needs differ our routine is flexible except for
their feeding and sleep routines. 

Our caretakers are focused on building each baby’s emotional,
social, physical and cognitive skills.

The most important aspect of our daily routine is to ensure that your baby is loved and cared for in a safe environment. Our weekly programme for the nursery will be handed to you and discussed with you in detail.

Busy Boots Class:  Toddlers

The entire area has been designed with this age group in mind.
We will cater for a maximum of 16 children. This class will be split
into 2 groups with no more than 8 children per group, which will be extremely beneficial to your child.

There is a separate bathroom area which is designed to assist
your toddler in toilet training.  By now your toddler should be
able to put on a few articles of clothing which would also assist
them with this transition. You will also have your own personal
locker for toddler’s clothing, toiletries and nappies.

This classroom is designed and decorated for this age group.
They are encouraged to play with other toddlers, which at this
stage is a lot easier for them.  The classroom is designed to
encourage their creative and artistic endeavors, allowing them
to express themselves. The teachers and/or caretakers will
provide longer periods of structured activities.

Your toddler will enjoy playing outside at this stage and the
classroom leads on to an outdoor play area which is designed
specifically for your toddler’s needs.

Our interior spaces have been colour coded and scaled to
accommodate your child’s needs.  We provide child-height basins
and toilets in their separate bathroom. Their personalized
lockers are also scaled accordingly. These are all designed to
make your child feel comfortable and confident in their
ability to explore and learn.

Daily Activities:

All daily routines/programmes are set to give the child a sense
of security and belonging. Each class has a daily programme
that is child-centered and age-appropriate. These are displayed
in each class for parents to see, as we aim to be as transparent
as possible.

We believe in “Learning through Play” and provide fun and
games inside and outside the classrooms. 
Our play grounds are well-equipped with sturdy climbing frames,
covered sandpits and shady areas.

Toilet Training:

We start toilet training your toddler between the ages of 2 - 2.5 years
and would recommend that you do the same at home. Our goal
is to teach the child independence in this regard.

Please ensure that you dress your toddler appropriately for toilet
training.    Please do not let them wear one-piece outfits when
they are still being toilet trained.  They should wear pants that
can be easily and quickly removed and pulled up again independently.
Pants should not have buckles, zips or buttons.

If we work together, it will be a smooth process.

learn. Our curriculum is child-centered and fun.

We are committed to teaching the whole child – emotionally,
socially, intellectually, physically and spiritually.
