Snowy Owls


This room can accommodate babies from the age of 12 weeks until 15 months old. The staff ratio is 1 staff: 3 children in compliance with OFSTED.

The snowy owl room is a bright spacious room which combined with our friendly caring and enthusiastic nursery practitioners, makes a friendly, welcoming, caring and stimulating environment for every baby in our care.

It is very important to us that your child feels welcomed and valued and that they feel happy and thrive within our setting. Activities are planned to suit every child’s individual needs and interests and observations on your child are carried out to monitor children’s development throughout their time at My Little Barn Owls.

Your child will be given a key person to help settle in to our setting and will liaise with parents/carers about your child’s development and their daily needs. This person will also carry out your child’s daily routine which will be discussed on your first settling in session.

We offer a ‘home from home’ environment in which the individual needs and routines of every child are followed ensuring lots of loving care and attention. We aim to make your child’s day both enjoyable and stimulating. We offer ‘settling in’ sessions whereby you attend the nursery with your child for an hour period to see how your child fits in and to meet the member of staff from the room who will be responsible. More visits will be booked for your child to ensure you are happy in the knowledge that your child is happy and ready for nursery.

A Daily Diary is provided for each child every day recording:

  • Amounts of food and drink taken
  • Nappy Changes/Checks
  • Sleeping times
  • Activities
  • Bottles (If required)

So you are aware of what your child has been doing each day at nursery. A member of staff is always on hand if you have any questions or queries to ask.

My Little Barn Owls provides ALL nappies, wet wipes.
