Little Giraffes

Come along and meet our manager Nicola and her team in Giraffes Room.

At Hilton Street Childcare we understand that selecting the right childcare for your baby as you return to work is probably one of the hardest decisions you will ever made. We are here to support you in that process. We believe its very important to establish a bond with you as parents as well as your baby so that you feel that you know us well have trust in us before you embark on your return to work. We offer stay and play sessions, this is where we can have a good conversation about your wishes for your child’s very early years. We want you to feel part of our nursery family. Our room Supervisor Miss Rebecca McSpirit will arrange your settling in process and be there for you at every step of the way.


Our room accommodates up to 15 children housed in two adjoining rooms. The adult to child ratio is 1:3. To ensure the highest quality care for your little ones we always ensure staff are fully qualified and experienced in caring for 0-2 year olds. We have a safe secure area for our youngest children who are not yet walking, this contains cots and enables children to sleep peacefully throughout the day as they need to. The remaining space is for our children who are walking or becoming ready to walk. It provides open floor spaces as well as table top activities.

Learning and Development

Even with our youngest children we want to help them grow and learn. We use the EYFS curriculum here and provide age appropriate activities, experiences and toys.

We have now introduced Parent Communication Sheets in our Little Giraffes room. It contains all information regarding your child’s weekly planning, nursery information and upcoming events/dates. It also has a section for parents to fill in with comments and feedback. As always you can access your child’s learning journey at any time and all activity planning will be displayed on the wall. The activity planning in Little Giraffes room is individually tailored for each child.

Events and Activities

In this room your child will take part in a lot of messy play and garden time as we believe that this encourages their development.

When the weather is nice we like to take the children out for walks or to the park.

Your Child’s Day to Day Needs

When you start with us at nursery, Rebecca and her team will provide you with a list of things that you will need to provide for you child each day.
