At Poplars we provide care for babies and children up to 14 years old. The children are grouped into self contained units according to their age and developmental needs.
The Baby Unit is divided into 2 rooms, Willows Room babies aged 3 months to 12 months, and Cherry Room babies aged 12 to 18 months. Both rooms work on a 1:3 ratio. There is a separate milk kitchen for preparing bottles, a food preparation kitchen and a sensorary room.
