About Us

About Us

Waterbabies aim to provide an atmosphere where children can become confident learners, develop their self- esteem and potential, whilst becoming independent and active learners. In conjunction with a strong, positive relationship between staff and parents for the best communication about each child, in order to ensure all individual needs are met consistently. We provide ongoing assessments for your child where activities are planned in accordance to their leaning and development.

The nursery team includes a Team Supervisor, Nursery Teacher and Nursery Mentor.

At Waterbabies we pride ourselves in the save environment we provide, especially with our magnetic opening/closing door system with intercom integrated to the fire alarm so your child’s safety is not a worry for you. The long windows and translucent blinds provide natural light for the most comfortable working and playing environment for vision. The special padded floors are great for any nasty bangs and bruises when children fall over, helping prevent impact on their bodies.

Waterbabies also offers a unique service: A Secure Image Cloud. We provide you with a secure login, where the parent, and only the parent, can view and download photos of their children taken at Waterbabies.

The resources ensure a creative and imaginative situation for each child to enjoy, including messy activities such as painting, gluing, and chalk, sand/water play as well as numerous table top toys. We encourage the children to engage in board games with small groups where they can practice the important social skills of sharing and co-operating. Cookery is very important activity that’s carried out on a regular basis, and can help to encourage various skills. We have a vast range of construction toys giving the children the opportunity to build models. Children are encouraged to use their logical and problem solving skills with many puzzles and games. Music and story time happens daily enabling the children to use their imagination to the full. Listening to exciting new stories will stimulate your child to use new words. The quiet area is made as comfortable as possible to encourage your child to curl up with a book alone or with a friend, this area also encourages the child to wind down when feeling too hyper.
