Babies – Ladybirds, from 3 months up to 18 months


Our delightful Little Ladybirds room is a lovely, bright and spacious environment that provides the perfect place for your little one to grow in confidence, play and interact safely.

At Hardingstone Day Nursery, our fully trained and qualified nursery staff look after babies from 3 months up to 18 months Our purpose built baby rooms provide a homely and caring environment that is rich in colour, sound, movement and touch for the children to explore and in which they can begin to develop their mobility.

Our Little Ladybirds room focuses on the three developmental essentials of early care and education in babies:

  • Communication and Language Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development

Babies enjoy sensory and tactile experiences such as playing with paints and water, exploring a variety of natural objects in a “treasure basket” or simply enjoying a book and a cuddle with one of the nursery nurses.

The baby room is divided into two free-flow areas, and a dedicated cot room for undisturbed sleep, allowing plenty of space for quiet time, eating and playing. The babies also benefit from access to our outdoor play area with age-appropriate toys and activities. We ensure that all the babies have the opportunity to explore the outdoor areas every day, weather dependent.

Because every baby in our care is different, and we understand how important it is for a baby to feel secure, we work with you to ensure we follow your baby’s home routine as closely as possible. This helps to minimise any unnecessary distress to your child and makes the transition from home to nursery as comfortable as possible.

Firstly, many, many thanks for your email today. I am not sure if this is normal protocol within the nursery, but as a parent leaving their child in nursery for the first day and receiving an email with pictures informing us that she is ok and having a great time is a fantastic idea. – Parent feedback
