Pregnancy

At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we understand that the journey of pregnancy is filled with excitement and anticipation, as well as questions and concerns. We are here to provide support and guidance to both our children and their families as they navigate this transformative period in their lives.

Our dedicated staff members are available to offer valuable advice and support on a range of topics related to caring for your baby. Whether it’s advice on sleeping patterns, feeding routines, weaning, or any other aspect of infant care, our experienced team is here to lend a helping hand. We recognise that every child is unique, and we strive to honor and respect the routines and preferences established by parents.

At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we believe in creating a seamless transition for your baby from home to our nursery environment. We understand the importance of maintaining continuity and consistency in their daily routines. To ensure a smooth integration, we make every effort to follow the routine that you have established for your baby as closely as possible. By aligning with your baby’s established schedule, we aim to provide a familiar and comforting environment that supports their overall well-being and development.

We also recognise that each family has their own unique set of circumstances and preferences. We encourage open communication and collaboration to better understand your specific needs and adapt our practices accordingly. Our goal is to create a nurturing and supportive environment that respects and reflects the values and routines that you have established for your baby.

At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we strive to provide comprehensive support to our children and their families during the pregnancy journey. From offering guidance on various aspects of infant care to respecting and following established routines, we are here to assist you every step of the way.
