Welcome to Smart Start Day Nursery
Early Years Foundation Stage and Learning Journeys
Toddler and Pre-school Nursery
These areas of learning are approached through play and take into account children’s own interests and individual needs.
Our Pre-School is designed to develop children’s confidence in learning, self esteem and social skills, thereby equipping them for their continued education as they make their transition to school.
