Parent Partnership

With Smartys we pride ourselves on our friendly working relationships with parents and carers. Due to the homely environment we have created, we have strong bonds between our staffing team and our parents.

We firmly believe that close co-operation and strong relationships with our parents has a profound effect on the service we offer. One of the benefits of being a small nursery is to ensure nursery life is a friendly, homely environment, and a more personal service to each family.

Smartys have a sub parent committee which is formed of a small group of our parents and is focused on working in partnership with the Management committee with the vision of Smartys central. The Smartys parent committee support us with fundraising ideas, and being the parent’s voice of Smartys.

We strongly encourage parent involvement in all ways such as inviting them to take part in our outings, activities, and volunteering.

Smartys solely believe in the key person system, where a key person is assigned to the child and their parents. Parents and staff are encouraged to communicate actively. Parents will be invited to the annual parent consultations and receive developmental reports.

Parent Testimonies

L was brilliant coming into nursery this morning and was keen to show Rachel her new shoes. All of the time Rachel's put in with her working on bonding has certainly paid off and we're really grateful... I know it's a pain with so many children to attend to! As always we're delighted with Smartys and think all of you do such a great job with L, she is so happy at nursery which is lovely for us too.
