Each of our nurseries has been purpose-built for our children and rooms created to suit the various age groups and their needs, based on their stage of development.

The Baby Room – The Discoverers Room

The Discoverers’ room provides care and stimulation for children aged 6 weeks to 16 months – nurturing the babies and helping them to discover the fascinating world around them.

The room has a carpeted floor play area with baby gyms and a good selection of age-appropriate toys. There is direct access outside onto the decking where your baby can play, socialise, get fresh air and watch the animals in the fields nearby!  There is an indoor ‘messy play’ area providing first experiences of creative and sensory play including sand, water and paint.  This area also doubles as the eating area, fully equipped with baby seating.


At the Wolds Nursery, children are taken into the main garden and taken on walks regularly for plenty of fresh air and at the Wolds Nursery Stragglethorpe, children have direct, continuous, free-flow access to the lovely colourful garden.  Here they can socialise, play, explore and gain fresh air. The gardens are well-equipped to provoke curiosity and enable the babies to explore safely; meeting their sensory, emotional and physical needs.

There is a designated sleep room for children who prefer some quiet when sleeping, cots, sleep mats and rockers are provided for nap times.  Clean sheets are always used.  We follow the recommended sleep position guidelines and monitor children to ensure they sleep safely.  There is an adjoining baby change room.

The room caters for up to 8 babies with a ratio of 1:3 – making transitioning from home to nursery as stress-free as possible.  For more information on our Early Years settings, please get in touch.
