Why Smarties… because Smarties is unique in both its rural setting facilities and in its constant strive to develop and improve the experience for children in their care. The staffing ratio far exceeds the legislative requirements and a huge emphasis is placed on continual professional development of the staff. These are just some of the reasons why Smarties has developed its reputation as one of the best nurseries in the UK and in 2018 won NDNA (National Day Nursery Association) Nursery of the year for central England and for the whole of the UK.
Staff have an excellent understanding of how children learn. They use a wide range of highly successful teaching strategies that ensures children make very rapid progress.
Which other nursery could jerk many more tears at the prospect of leaving it, than the inevitable few shed in the early days of starting. As we prepare to move overseas I am left wondering where in the world we will find an environment as homely and stimulating, and staff as loving personable and caring.
