Duckling Room Birth – First Steps
A lot of practitioners at KingsWood are parents themselves, including myself. We understand what a strain it can be leaving your “little one” for the first time. You can be reassured that your child is being cared for in the manner that you wish. It is very common and natural for parents/carers to feel anxious at the beginning.

At the end of a session  you will take home with you your babies learning journal. In your babies learning journal practitioners have captured your child’s day and recorded it for you in photographic and written format. To see photographs of your child’s day you naturally smile and feel reassured they are cared for and nurtured in a loving environment in which they are thriving.

The learning journals are a lovely keepsake, and hold photographs and written memories including mile stones reached of your babies early years.
Parents/carers are encouraged to add in their own photographs from home and add little notes of their babies development. In a few years you will look back at the photographs and read the wonderful tales and the development miles that are recorded in your babies learning journal with a smile and fondness!

Sleep times will be different for every child and practitioners follow home routines where possible. We have a spacious sleep room at KingsWood where children can rest peacefully with sleep checks done routinely.  Each child has a clean cot sheet everyday and it will only be used by that child. All baby linen is washed daily. You may wish to bring in a home comfort for your little one, such as a teddy bear, dummy or blanket. We ask parents/carers to provide pyjamas for children to wear at sleep time for that cosy, homely feeling. Parent’s/carers of young babies are requested to supply their own milk and bottles. Please ensure all bottles are clearly labelled. Our young ones have the option to eat our healthy, nutritious meals if parent’s/carers wish for them to do so. Meals are included in our prices.


Nappy changes will be as frequent as required. Please supply nappies and wipes in your child’s bag every session.


 Due to being a small nursery with a maximum of 6 babies in our Ducklings room, we strongly recommend parents/carers reserve a cosy spot for their little one as soon as possible. Babies who have not yet been born have their little place at KingsWood waiting for them.
