We have a bright, cosy baby room with a wide range of resources. There is plenty of open floor space and designated areas for baby changing, quiet/sleep time and supervised play.
The little ones enjoy imaginative and creative play through sensory and tactile experiences, with age-appropriate toys and games on offer throughout the day. Balanced with quieter activities such as enjoying books and music, every activity becomes a learning experience.
We understand individual needs and routine, therefore work closely with parents to ensure each child is happy and contented at our nursery.
We offer an all-inclusive service and provide formula milk, terry nappies, and wipes/creams.
We use re-usable traditional terry towelling nappies washed to a very high standard on our own premises. Not only are the terry nappies environmentally friendly, they contain no harsh chemicals that may be found in disposables – helping your baby to learn and play in comfort.
Staff at The Railway Children sensitively help babies and toddlers become increasingly independent in managing aspects of their self-care. Our babies start to use the potty from an early age, making it a fun experience with the use of songs and story time. Our children are often clean and dry from a much earlier age.
With parental permission and close supervision, our babies can sleep outdoors in our large coach built 'Silver Cross' prams

We have a large conservatory for our toddler room with a wide range of resources, it is also set out to enable our children to have access to continuous provision and self- selection.

There is a tiled floor area used for creative activities such as sand/water play and arts/crafts.
