When it comes to selecting a day care for children, lot of questions revolve around in a parent’s mind, ranging from “what’s the staff to child ratio in a particular day care?” or “How am I going to manage the pick-up time during the peak hour?” But when your child is very young (9 months or less), you’re much more concerned about how your baby will get settled in the day care environment? How is day care going to affect your baby’s sleep? Will the nursery follow your child’s routine?
Many nurseries operate on a schedule for all children, including infants. While many others accept to follow your baby’s routine. A good nursery will always strive to make it easy for your baby to fit well in the nursery environment. But if you don’t feel comfortable, you can find many other nurseries in Dubai that will ask for your own routine and follow it to make your baby feel at home. At Little Pandas ELC, we follow your baby’s personal home routine throughout the course of the day, taking account of every detail that you can pass to us. Each parent whose child joins our baby unit is asked to provide, at the time of registration, a detailed breakdown of their child’s routine. We don’t just look at times but we go further to find out how, why and when?
Baby Care at Little Pandas
Our Baby room offers a perfect introduction to the Centre. The color scheme is red, white and black in line with the first colors that babies see. The room provides a stimulating environment which enables babies to follow their own development. The Baby Room is specifically designed to cater for very young babies and is tailored to their needs, with sleeping facilities incorporated into the room to allow babies to continue their sleep and wake cycles comfortably.
The babies love exploring the range of ‘treasure baskets’ provided, containing household items, metals, wooden objects or colors, and enjoy relaxing in intricate corners. The room’s soft area has a book corner along with plenty of toys and activity mats for the children to enjoy, the soft matted areas that allow messy play and an opportunity to develop creativity. The other part of the room, with a washable floor, is where both feeding and messy play activities take place.
We also encourage the continuity of breastfeeding. Mummies can come into the room and feed their babies at their convenience.
We have a successful settling-in policy and try to follow parents’ lead whenever possible to ensure that each baby adapts well to life at Little Pandas. We provide parents with
comprehensive information via our Kindiedays App system as well as lots of opportunity for discussion both at drop off and pick up time. Our Baby Room can accommodate six babies with 3 members of staff. Our staff are chosen, not only on their experience and qualifications but also on their friendly and caring disposition which our children enjoy and parents appreciate. Our youngest children in the setting join us at 2 months and stay in this room until they are 12 months old.
