The children are able to have a sleep, whenever needed to suit their routine during the day. The Buds room has two sleep rooms attached with cots, or the option of a travel cot. Children are able to bring their comforters in to make them feel more at ease.
We work closely with parents and carers to ensure that the child’s needs are well addressed and to make the child’s nursery day as happy as possible.
