Our Rooms

Our Baby Room - (0-18 months approx)

Our baby room is brightly decorated with mirrors and pictures and activities are planned to help stimulate your baby.

The nursery staff who care for the babies are qualified in all aspects of child care and development and will ensure your baby gets all the stimulation, care, comfort and attention they need.


We follow your baby’s home routines at Straylands to ensure they settle into Straylands well. A daily diary will be kept on your baby, giving details of when and how long your baby has slept, how much they have eaten, how much milk they have had and the activities they have been involved in, a copy of which is given to you at the end of the day.

Our Toddler Room - (18 months-30 months approx)
In our toddler room your child will be offered a carefully designed programme of activities both adult and child led to provide every opportunity to develop your child’s skills and knowledge through play.

Your child will be treated as an individual and will be encouraged to develop at his or her own pace. Again your child’s development will be assessed and recorded and discussed with you on a daily basis.


 A daily diary is also kept on your child in this room so we can inform you of your child’s day, you will receive a copy when you pick up your child.

A relaxed routine is followed in this room to keep your child stimulated throughout the day with a wide variety of activities on offer.
