Baby Room

0-18 months

Our Baby Room is a light and airy, self-contained room furnished with special low-level equipment. We pride ourselves on it being a happy and calm environment and staff liaise closely with parents to provide flexible and individual routines so that babies feel settled and secure.

Within our Baby Room we provide separate areas for sleeping, play, meals and nappy changing.

Babies at The Rocking Horse Nursery are given the opportunity to experiment and explore through play and sensory experiences, along with music, singing, messy activities and the use of our outside all-weather surface garden. All activities are overseen by our highly qualified and experienced staff - who always leave time for cuddles and individual attention - and sleeping children are monitored and supervised at all times in a designated quiet area within the Baby Room.

The nursery’s opening times are:
Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm

(Excluding public holidays)

The nursery follows the curriculum as laid out in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). These guidelines set the standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.



Play underpins the EYFS. It also underpins learning and all aspects of children’s development. Through play, children develop language skills, emotions, creativity, social and intellectual skills..



The Rocking Horse Nursery caters for all dietary requirements with healthy and nutritious snack and meal options and the highest level 5 star food hygiene rating for added peace of mind.

As part of our commitment to protect the environment for our children and future generations, The Rocking Horse Nursery uses the services of Green Bottoms to recycle disposal nappies using the most eco-friendly solution that’s available.

In 2011 Green Bottoms used the UK’s first ever specialist nappy recycling facility to dispose of millions of nappies and today it’s using nappy waste to create power for homes.
