Our Discoverers room is where your baby’s Muddy Boots Adventure begins!
Here is where all the youngest children have lots of fun and cuddles. Here the fantastic team do their best to make sure you and your little one feel as settled and reassured as possible as you first join the Muddy Boots family.
At this very early age, babies are taking everything in – watching and observing everything around them, listening to all the sounds, and learning by feeling and touching in sensory exploration.
The space is homely, nurturing and calming, providing plenty of interesting objects and activities for the babies to ‘discover & explore’.
The Baby Room team understands the links between physical development and brain development, and so give plenty of space and freedom for babies to explore the interesting areas including baby climbing frame and ‘Toddleboxes’.
As your child is learning to talk, the team provide lots of opportunity to promote conversation, developing language and communication through thoughtful interactions, singing and stories. Lots of chattering goes on in Discoverers!
‘Heuristic Play’ (playing with and exploring a selection of every-day objects, chosen for their sensory interest), and natural play materials are offered in ‘Treasure baskets’, which are enjoyed by all the babies.
The children also regularly enjoy messy play. This can involve gloop, spaghetti, shaving foam, jelly, ice cubes, anything that babies like to touch and feel (safely of course, with an adult close by!)
Babies are also included in Muddy Boots’ outdoor philosophy where they derive huge enjoyment and development opportunities from going outside to explore and play, engaging all the senses.
Children in Discoverers can get tired because they are so busy at nursery, so we have a cosy, quiet sleep area where your child can sleep if you would like them to. It’s hard work having so much fun!
