Babies

Babies at Little Houghton Day Nursery, NorthamptonChildren aged under 2 years mainly play in the room known as the ‘Ducks,’ a room specially designed to engage little ones. At one end is a play loft, with hidey holes and a baby-friendly wooden slide; at the other, a low table surrounded by tiny chairs. In between is a whole range of baby-friendly toys, books and activities.

Baby playing outside at Little Houghton Day Nursery, NorthamptonOutside, a safe play area has been fenced off especially for use by the babies, although many of them love to play in the large area too, or even in the enormous sandpit.

Back inside we have created a restful Sleep Room, where you can choose if your baby rests in a wooden cot, on a special nursery sleep-mat, in a baby bouncer, a pushchair or even in a dog basket. Wherever your little one likes to nap at home, we will endeavour to provide the same at nursery. They have their own sheets and blankets which we wash weekly at nursery.
