The room has:
- a specialist baby change facility
- a ventilated sleep pod
- a milk kitchen providing the highest quality provision for your baby.
In this room we operate at a minimum adult:child ratio of 1:3 and there are always at least two members in the room at all times. There are 12 spaces within the Ladybird Room.
Staff are specially trained in the Ladybird Room to tune in to your baby. We understand it can be difficult leaving your baby for the first time, which is why we strive to provide a welcoming, safe and engaging atmosphere. Staff record all aspects of your child’s day in the daily diary, showing you exactly what they have got up to during their time at HOPE. We also ensure the routine you have set out is followed to ensure a smooth and seamless settling.
All babies are encouraged to explore and become confident, independent thinkers through a range of messy play, sensory and age-appropriate activities. The Ladybird Room also has its own independent garden and equipment.
