Our emphasis with babies
Is to encourage physical development and discovery within a warm and loving environment commensurate with their emotional and social needs. Throughout your child’s day, dedicated baby room carers play with and talk to the babies, giving them cuddles and ensuring their emotional needs are attended to. We take our lead from you as parents, and follow your baby’s home routine of eating and sleeping. At Newpark, babies are introduced to Heuristic play articles, which expose children to different natural textures and materials. Babies may sit in a small group around the ‘treasure basket’ which contains natural everyday objects e.g. keys, shells, brushes, sponges, and silk scarves. Babies can choose objects to explore with their senses of touch, taste, sight and hearing, discovering form shapes and textures. This activity also gently introduces the concept of taking turns and sharing.
