Baby Room Project Training

Here, at the Seedling Nursery, our practitioners receive regular ‘Baby Project’ training and apply the methods and theories in their everyday practice. The Baby Room Project is a fun, sustainable and an exciting project that enlightens practitioners and parents about their baby’s brain development in order to raise the quality of babies experiences.  We are also currently piloting a ‘Baby Project Group’ aimed at parents with babies, so that we can share our in-depth knowledge and experiences.
