DSCN9328(1).JPGWe understand that choosing the right care for your precious little one is an extremely important decision. From the first time you visit we will work with you to ensure that you and your baby are comfortable in our surroundings and you are given as much information as possible to help you make an informed decision. We want you to feel proud of your child care choice.

Every child is different and therefore with your support, we will tailor your baby’s introduction to best suit both your needs. Our baby unit has been purposefully designed to provide a warm, homely and stimulating environment with a minimum staff ratio of one highly qualified Early Years Practitioner to three babies. We are proud of our high staff retention and large staff team, our staff are passionate, dedicated and experienced; we never use agency staff, so you know you will see the same faces day in day out.

170920150000007405322_SH_18092015153404.jpgSnowflakes is located on the ground floor at Stationhouse, with direct access into a baby garden at the rear of the property. The room itself has under floor heating and the space is divided into a number of zones enabling younger babies to observe and learn from those slightly older whilst having the space to crawl, roll or sit in comfort and safety. We have a separate sleep room with lovely wooden cots to ensure that babies have a safe and peaceful place to rest that is not too dissimilar to home.

Babies each follow their own feeding and sleep patterns closely complimenting their home routine. Lots of one to one attention and encouragement enables each child to settle happily, developing their confidence and learning to enjoy social interaction.

All activities meet the babies’ developmental needs and are planned in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. Babies are provided with a variety of opportunities to explore and develop their physical and language skills, through music, baby yoga, stories, singing and a wide range of sensory materials. The room has a homely feel with cosy carpeted areas allowing them to snuggle, roll, crawl and walk, along with a vinyl area for messy play where they play with water, sand, paint and are free to explore and create their very own pieces of art!

We believe that fresh air and the ability to see, touch and explore nature really aid child development and therefore we will spend a large proportion of each day outside, whether on buggy walks around the marina, lake grounds, in our baby garden or in our larger front and rear gardens.

Each baby has a dedicated Key Person who will work with you to ensure that their needs are met right up until they move rooms at approximately eighteen months. We take lots of photos and videos, and document all your child’s learning on our own specially designed online observation system. This means you can keep up to date with what they are up to anytime anywhere.


Professional love.jpgWe provide all meals, nappies, creams and sun creams. We only ask that you bring a change of clothes and your baby’s milk. All our meals, including vegetable and fruit purees are freshly prepared on site using locally sourced produce where possible. We cater for all dietary preferences and requirements and will discuss this in depth with you at 'settling in'.

For your piece of mind 100% of our staff have a paediatric first aid certificate and our key workers are fully qualified with bags of experience.
