Tawny Owls

We welcome babies into our Tawny Owl Nursery from 6 weeks to approximately 18 months old.

As parents ourselves, we are highly sensitive to the need of providing a relaxed and loving atmosphere into which parents can leave their most “precious possessions” with us. To support both our babies,toddlers and parents we employ a team of qualified and experienced staff that have a vast wealth of knowledge and experience in relation to working with babies. We aim for our Tawny Owl Nursery to be a secure, stimulating and caring home from home environment providing parents with the confidence and peace of mind knowing that their children are receiving the best possible care available.

The routine of our babies days and sessions are very much based on the individual needs of our babies with our babies dictating when they require feeding, changing, stimulating or sleeping.  As our babies develop and become more inquisitive we provide more stimulating and challenging activities, such as arts & craft, sand & water play complimented by stimulating and educational resources. All staff employed within our Tawny owl nursery attend annual save a babies life training which covers vital training on choking,non breathing infants and first aid skills.

Welcome Area

This is the area where your children’s belongings are stored and where your child’s key person welcomes you. This is also where our care plans for the toddlers and parents take place.
