Yellow Room


In our Yellow Room we have a maximum of 6 children, on a 1 to 3 ratio, enabling the staff to fulfil the needs of all the children within the room. In this room we take children from 6 weeks - 2 years and support them with the transition to the Red Room.


The Yellow Room's routine is not as structured as the other rooms within the nursery however they still cover all areas of the EYFS within this room, which is planned weekly for every individual child.


At meal times babies will be offered food within the nursery menu (once weaning has commenced) that is in line with government guidance and will take into account any informed dietary requirements. Babies/toddlers will be fed by a member of staff if the child is unable to do it for themselves however finger feeding is encouraged. Eating utensils are always offered and babies/toddlers soon pick up how to use them appropriately.  We will also prepare milk as requested by you and in line with government policy.  


We will work with you and the child to keep a consistent sleep routine in the Yellow room in our seperate sleep room with cots, rockers and sleep matts depending on your/ your child's preference.


We operate a Key Person System.  Each member of staff has responsibility for certain children and each child has one special adult with whom they relate.  This can make settling into the nursery much easier.  The Key Person is responsible for tailoring the groups curriculum to the unique needs of each individual child.This is done by completing observation records 3 times a week.


 The Room Leaders voice.....


We enjoy working as a close team with parents in a friendly, cosy environment.  This enables the children to become confident little learners.  We enjoy watching, supporting and aiding children's development.  The most rewarding part of our jobs are to build bonds with the children, watch them grow and happily move through to the Red Room as confident able learners.


A parents voice...




"I chose abc Nursery from 3 'outstanding' nurseries in the area but it was obvious to me that abc really stood out. Their purpose built facilities are excellent but I was also impressed with the small baby room (I didn't want my baby swamped by lots of other children regardless of the staffing ratio.) I was also impressed by abc's clear adherence to their policies. My baby was significantly younger than the others in the baby room at the time and I was apprehensive about how he would get on but I needn't have been. He settled in quickly and from day 2 he was happy and I had no touble leaving him. This helped me immensely in my transition back to work. My baby's development continues to be supported by the staff and he has really benefited from being around the other children. abc Nursery is excellent value for money and I thoroughly recommend them.
