Janet Skelton

Nursery Owner

I am proud to say that Smartys Day Nursery has been well established since 1997.

I first started my childcare career 30 years ago when I qualified as a nursery nurse and since then I have continued to develop my training and qualifications and achieve my dream of owning my own nursery.

I have put the best of everything I have learnt over these years into my nurseries and insist on the highest standard of care, the best quality staff, the warmest surroundings and a service to match.

I saw there was a need for childcare facilities for working families in Stone as I myself was one. It all began with the opening of the first ever before and after school club. After a couple of successful years and due to popular demand I achieved my dream of opening my first nursery.

I am responsible for the day to day management and operations of the company. I oversee the daily running of the company ensuring all of my parents, children and staff receive an outstanding service.

A child’s first experiences can affect all aspects of their development. I enjoy the challenge of ensuring that all children attending Smartys Day Nursery get the very best in terms of opportunity and experience in order to develop to their full potential. As I parent to three older children and grandparent to one I am passionate that your child’s first experience of education is a positive and enjoyable one.
