Main House, Ground Floor

Clifford Forge House is a 17th Century Manor House, located in over an acre of its own private gardens. It has been extensively refurbished specifically to provide superb facilities for the care and education of our children.

The ground floor is the location for our birth to 2 year olds. Here our babies enjoy three well resourced and homely activity rooms. Within these light and spacious areas there is a wealth of equipment and resources that are specifically designed to support the development of this age group. At meal times our babies progress from high chairs to purpose built, size appropriate tables and armed chairs, which supports their independence when eating, and provides for a sociable meal time experience.

To help maintain our high standards of hygiene, the ground floor activity rooms are shoe free zones.

We maintain the highest staffing levels to ensure the children are provided with the care and attention they deserve. To ensure this, we practise a key person system so that each child has their own member of staff to care for their every need.

Each of our baby rooms are staffed with nursery practitioners who have a wealth of experience and training in the care and education of our youngest children. We have a separate baby changing room which stocks a comprehensive range of approved baby products and fresh linen and bibs are provided for every child. All of our ground floor areas enjoy easy access to our extensive out door play areas and gardens.

Whilst play and education is very important, we also believe that sufficient rest is very necessary so the children feel relaxed and energised for learning. With this in mind the Sleep Room is also located on the ground floor. Here the children can rest in an environment that is not only safe and secure, but also provides specifically designed baby cots for every child, in a room which has many sensory lights and aids with relaxing music to encourage restful sleep.
