Partnering in your child’s success

We strive to form a close bond with you as parents.  As part of this we offer the following partnering benefits:

The Best Communication

  • A home visit from two of the staff before you join Little Smarties
  • A Key Person approach so that you have a port of call for discussing your child’s day and this person will take responsibility for providing individual love and care to your child
  • Twice-yearly parents evenings for you to discuss your child’s progress
  • Learning Journals that are kept up to date and available to you at any time
  • An open-door policy with the nursery managers.  If there’s ever an issue, we will respond immediately
  • An open-door policy with the owners – Gisela and Gerard Gray
  • Bespoke newsletters from each room sent via email
  • Celebrations for key religious or family events

The Best staff

  • Strict adherence to the Government’s guidelines for staffing ratios
  • Experience and qualified with an appropriate mix of mature and more junior staff.  A large proportion of staff have their own children
  • On-going training and promotion opportunities for our staff to keep everyone motivated
  • Monthly staff meeting to cover key development targets and updates on new policies and resolution of issues

The Best Convenience

  • Childcare vouchers accepted
  • Free Government grant funding for 3 & 4 year olds
  • Open all-year round with convenient opening hours from 8:00 to 6:00pm, Monday through to Friday (except Public Holidays and around a week over Christmas)

Quite the most fabulous nursery ever, and our little girl totally loves it! Beautiful setting, wonderful play and facilities (completely outstanding/fantastic team, lovely food, high standards of care, and happy kids. Plus good value for money. We love Little Smarties and cannot recommend it highly enough.
