Our babies from the age of eight weeks through to eighteen months, are cared for independently on the first floor of the house in our bright, modern Baby-Unit. Every aspect of the care of our very youngest children; feeding, changing, sleeping and play, takes place in purpose developed rooms. All the rooms are furnished to a high standard and the Baby Play Rooms have been equipped with interesting and entertaining toys and resources to aid early development.
Our experienced and qualified staff have been chosen most carefully. We know how important it is for you to be reassured that your baby is being cared for by someone you trust and are happy to leave your child with. You will find the Baby-Unit team confident and easy to talk to and they are working with our youngest children because it is what they love to do.
We operate a key person system here at Ellingham House. One member of staff being particularly responsible for each child. The Key person will naturally build a bond of friendship and trust with your baby to make them feel secure and happy in the nursery environment. This begins during the introductory visits when Sammy, the Baby-Unit Supervisor, will introduce your child’s key person to you and your baby.
