Activities will be set up in the spacious designated baby garden and children can access the indoor and outdoor areas.

Childrens nappies are changed by their key-worker to reinforce the key worker relationship.

The baby room team will then lead a singing and story, or music session with the babies before lunch is served.

We ensure children's own routines are followed here at Lilypads  and staff will place children for a sleep based on the routine that parents fill out upon enrolling. Children are checked on every 10 minutes.

Afternoon activity time will begin at about 1.00pm followed by afternoon snack, activity time, garden play, nappy time, another singing or music session before tea is served at 4.00pm.

After tea, nappies will be changed again by key persons and children will have free-play or garden play before saying goodbye for the day.
