The baby room has recently been updated and the children have loved exploring all of the new equipment in their environment.
We have had a new sensory mirror box, which the children love to crawl through playing peekaboo through all of the different holes and with themselves in the mirrors. They also really enjoyed when we shone torches through the stars in the top, making the light reflect stars into the box. This is helping to encourage the children’s sensory development.
We have also been exploring our new toddle beam, encouraging the children to develop their balance and physical development climbing and crawling along. The children have had great fun using their imagination skills and the wheel pretending to drive. Beep Beep!
