Battersea Road Nursery Case Study
Good air quality is especially important to babies, who need it to stay healthy and develop into strong children and adults. This means that you need to provide them with fresh and unpolluted air. Doing this can be a challenge for some nurseries either because they are based near to the main road, or because the building layout makes it difficult to provide ventilation to all areas. One such area we commonly help nurseries with is the cot room.
Cot rooms need to be kept quiet so that babies can sleep well and staff can focus on their other activities. Keeping cot rooms quite often means closing the door, which can cause oxygen levels to drop and humidity to increase. Cot rooms can also be a breeding ground for infectious organisms, such as viruses, bacteria and mould. So, it's important to consider what can be done to improve the quality of care and build safer and healthier environments.
