ACE Place rooms: Robins

Our youngest children (0-2 years) are accommodated in our Robins and Doves rooms which are home to up to 20 children across the two rooms.

Ages: 0 to 2
Capacity: 6

The Robins room is a cosy room registered for 6 babies. The children are cared for on a 1:3 ratio by staff who are supported by a trainee to ensure that our children have the best possible care.

The routines in this room closely follow those adopted at home and the staff work closely with parents to make sure that our littlest babies settle in safely.

The Doves room is a little larger however staff in both rooms are well equipped to support your child as they grow and develop, meeting their needs until they are ready to move on to our Penguin room.

Staff in both rooms are familiar with and understanding of each child’s need for connection to feel secure at nursery; their needs for attachment are fundamental to our approach to caring for our youngest children and meeting their individual needs.

Together we can

A key focus for our Under 3’s is South Lanarkshire Council’s Together We Can.

This document provides clear guidance for staff working in early years on how best to support our youngest children.  All the activities provided for our Under 3’s are designed with this in mind.

Together We Can has been developed in line with the values, purpose and principles of the Curriculum for Excellence and is, therefore, an excellent building block for the learning the children will go on to undertake in the 3-5’s and indeed when they move on to Primary and Secondary education at school.

Together We Can focuses on 5 areas of development:

  1. health and well being
  2. emotional spiritual well being
  3. social development
  4. physical development, and
  5. cognitive development

Together We Can recognises the important role parents and carers have in their child’s development and we will work in partnership with you to take forward their development in a holistic way.
