Babies

A safe environment, rich with opportunities for your baby to explore, learn and grow.

From birth, babies are busy, active learners, immediately investigating the sights, sounds, and feel of the world.

We know how hard it is to first leave your child at nursery – that’s why Juniors Nursery staff endeavor to create a homely pre-school environment so your child will feel secure and happy from the start.

Caring for babies from 2 months to 2 years old, we provide lots of one-to-one care in a warm and stimulating environment where little ones love to play and learn.

Activities

This area contains a selection of age-appropriate activities for children of all ages. Each activity has been developed with the child in mind - providing them with invaluable learning experiences and opportunities, whilst making fun memories! The activities specifically help to develop children’s gross and fine motor skills, confidence and allows them to explore their imagination and creativity.
