I am so pleased with my choice of nursery- my son has been at Smart Kids Day nursery since he was 9months old (now 13 months). He has settled so well with the help of the brilliant staff. The staff and management are very attentive, they all are genuinely interested in my sons development and I trust their judgement wholly. The staff seem to really get on with each other and enjoy their jobs, and the kids benefit hugely from the fun relaxed atmosphere.

My son has been attending Smart Kids for a month. I am so pleased with how he has settled into the baby room with amazing support from Grace. The entire team has made my son and I feel so welcome here. Dad and I have noticed positive changes in our sons sleep pattern and see how excited he is to go to nursery- he literally jumps out of my arms when greeted by staff (I’m not sure whether to be offended 🤣). We are really happy with the services being provided by such a lovely team. Because it is out first child we were very nervous parents, thank you for making this transition so smooth and easing our minds.

My son has been very happy since he started here, he adores the staff and always waves at the manager when we walk by the nursery on his days off. In the past 10 months there has been some exceptional changes, as a parent I have been kept up to date via the newsletter emails and parents board and appreciate all the hard work and commitment from the staff regarding my sons developement. The new team is amazing and I can’t thank them enough.
