Perhaps you’ve already heard about the Northamptonshire Baby Room Project - we won the national Nursery World Award 2010 for Local Authority Early Years Team. Parents and practitioners say that doing the three sessions is awe-inspiring, practical and thrilling. 

The practitioner course: three half day sessions, each a month apart fostering reflective practice. 

Babies’ brain development; Babies’ Emotional Development; and Babies’ Playing and Laughing 

Each session combines: Quizzes, DVDs, Group discussion, A baby’s journey, Making easy resources. 

It is highly desirable that two people from each setting attend. 

What people say 

'I came away from the first session and thought about how we interact with babies, the importance of promoting positive role modelling and why it is essential to make parents aware of what we see.’ 

Some of the information is mind blowing – I will be disseminating it to both staff and parents.” Health visitor 

“The resources presented have given us ideas about what to bring in to our setting.” 

“It was exciting to learn more about the baby’s brain, attachment and relationships.” 

”We have totally changed our nappy changing approach.” 

“We use the outdoors much more for our babies, including for sleeping.” 

“We have moved the position of the baby room and are rethinking family groups to organise the nursery.”
