0 – 15 Months

Home from Home

Our Home from Home room is specially designed to cater for the needs of babies up to 15 months.

Here at Le Monde Petit Nursery we provide a warm and friendly home from home environment where non-mobile babies are supported by our caring and experienced nursery practitioners.  Activities in this room are floor based and practitioners spend their time at ground level with babies assisting them and encouraging them to explore the stimulating and interesting environment they have created for them – an environment that is forever evolving. Nursery practitioners work closely with you as parents and carers at initial settling in sessions to get to know babies’ daily routines at home to ensure continuity of care when they start at nursery. The team will continue to uphold detailed exchanges of conversation with parents on a daily basis to find out how they are progressing at home and to let you know how your child has spent their day at nursery, the activities they have enjoyed and the achievements they have made at Le Monde Petit.

The babies have the opportunity for lots of outdoor experiences, to explore their natural environment and to get lots of fresh air – they spend time daily in our Nursery gardens, and practitioners regularly take them for walks in our triple buggies to the local parks.

Daily diaries are completed to inform parents of meals, nappy changes and sleep times and to provide you with a written account of your child’s day at nursery.  We also keep a Learning Journey file on e-tablets to record through photographs and videos the progress, development and achievements your baby makes at nursery.

Gemma Vickers

Nursery Deputy Manager / Room Leader in Home from Home & Little Discoverers

I have over 11 years of experience working in childcare and I am happy to say that 10 of these have been at Le Monde Petit.  I came here shortly after qualifying as a Level 3 and I have worked my way up to my role now of Deputy Manager and Room Leader in Home from Home caring for our smallest of babies. I am also Room Leader in Little Discoverers. I am currently studying for my Level 5 in Children, Young People & Their Workforce which I am hoping to complete shortly.

Diane Whitaker

Nursery Practitioner in Home from Home

I spent more than 7 years at a local nursery before coming to Le Monde Petit to care for the babies in Little Discoverers. Looking after children is a very rewarding job; being able to watch the babies grow into little children with characters all of their own is very satisfying. I have 3 children of my own who I love spending time with.
