At Smartys Day Nursery we offer unique and personal settling in packages. These are tailored around families individual circumstances, and are designed to ensure that every child has an enjoyable, smooth, and comfortable transition into nursery life.
At Smartys we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS).
The EYFS is a single curriculum framework that supports children’s learning and development from the ages of birth to 5 years (end of the child’s reception year).
The EYFS is made up of seven areas of learning and three characteristics of effective learning. The seven areas of learning are divided into prime areas and specific areas.
At Smartys we place a huge emphasis on the prime areas (especially for our youngest children), as these areas support later development and learning in the specific areas.
During your settling in visits, we will ensure that we understand your child’s current routine, how your child likes to be comforted, if they have a special comforter, a favourite story or activity they like to do.
At Smartys Day Nursery we have strong relationships with all primary schools within the local area.
We use this to support this highly important transition, we do everything we can to support and celebrate this transition, ensuring children are well prepared for the next sage in their learning journey.
