Welcome to Smartys Day Nursery


Mission Statement

Smartys Day Nursery (Hitchin) is committed to providing high quality care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years in a homely and caring atmosphere. Children are able to learn through play, enabling environments, and caring loving staff.

"We believe that every child is a different kind of flower, and all together, they make this nursery a beautiful garden."


Smartys Day Nursery has been running since 1993, making us the most original day nursery in Hitchin. Smartys is a committee run nursery registered as a charity and therefore non-profit making.

We provide full private day care for children of 3 months-5 years.

Our opening times are Monday – Friday between the hours of 7.30am-6.30pm over 51 weeks of the year.

We are a small homely nursery that thrives on offering a safe stimulating environment for up to 39 children at any one time. Our nursery consists of three age groups which are;

  • The Jelly Babies room; for ages 3 months to two years
  • The Jelly tots room; for ages two years upwards
  • The Jelly beans room; for ages 3-5 years.

We are registered and approved with Ofsted, with the rating of ‘good’ for the care and education that we offer the children. A copy of this report is available for viewing on the Ofsted website and also on request.
