Babies Room

  • Overview: Babies' Room

    Wyndarra’s Babies’ Room caters for babies from approximately six (6) weeks to eighteen (18) months of age.

    The play room has a large soft carpet area for floor activities and a reasonable size wet area for meals and messy art.

    The educators ensure the curriculum supports the needs and development of all the children in their environment using their room space wisely.

    The children’s sleep area is separate to the play area to allow the children a peaceful rest in a dark quiet environment, while the children who are not ready for a sleep can continue their play.  To ensure adequate supervision of the sleep room, a large view window runs the full length of the room.  There is a baby monitor so educators are able to listen to the children.  A buzzer sounds every five minutes that alerts when it’s time for the educators to go into the room for an additional visual check.

    The babies have their own large playground, with small climbing equipment for the older children, sandpit and a sensory garden that allows children to experience different smells as they walk through.

    The children get to enjoy watching Wyndarra’s two rabbits hop around their pens through the viewing glass whilst outside.

    We have places for 16 children in this room.  Room ratio 1 staff per four (4) children.
