Jumping Jacks Day Nursery, Bedford – 0-2 Years

Starting nursery can be a daunting prospect and a time of very mixed emotions. But at the Jumping Jacks day nursery in Bedford, you’ll find qualified, specialist staff and first-class baby unit facilities geared to caring for your little one. There’s also lots of support and settling-in expertise for children as well as anxious parents and carers.

With just 12 babies in the unit, your child’s individual routines for sleeping and feeding can be followed, maintaining consistency with patterns at home.

Your baby’s daily progress and any significant events are all carefully noted in Day Books and Celebration of Achievement logs. With an individual key person allocated to your baby, you’ll always have a special point of contact to discuss your child’s care and development at the start and end of their stay with us.

Our self-contained baby unit on the first floor of the nursery has an extremely relaxed and happy atmosphere and includes:

  • a quiet, comfortable rest area for sleeping and relaxing
  • a fully-equipped play area
  • clean, hygienic changing area
  • a dedicated team of staff

  • Full eye contact from staff when feeding and talking
  • Lots of smiles, hugs, praise and reassurance

Older Babies Will Enjoy

Worried About Saying Goodbye?

Most babies from eight months on take time to adjust to their new surroundings. Separation wobbles are completely normal. However, your child will have lots of time to settle in at Jumping Jacks and, with their own friendly key person, handover time will soon become familiar and easier. We can help you develop a “goodbye” routine and even create a special box full of your child’s favourite things, from toys and books to comforters to ease any separation concerns.
