Our Smarties room is where your child will come into before starting school. With this in mind we aim to prepare the children for this big event and for the changes ahead of them.

We support and encourage the children to become independent in all aspects of their learning and development. This is primarily done by carrying out the nursery ethos of learning through play.

The Keyperson System is used throughout the nursery; therefore  the children always know they will have help, guidance and encouragement from a known member of staff, once this close relationship is established it allows the children to grow in confidence and reach their full potential at their own pace.

In Smarties we aim to provide a stimulating and challenging environment  for the children to learn new skills, thrive and gain knowledge of the world around them. We always follow the childrens lead taking their thoughts and feelings into consideration, we work with them to expand their ideas and where possible incorporate them into our topics or themes. 

We feel that children leaving Smarties are confident, happy young people who have made good friends and had lots of fun and laughter together. They are now ready for "BIG SCHOOL".
