The youngest members of the Smart Tots family start their journey with us in the upstairs suite of rooms giving them a variety of activity areas created especially for their needs.  Spaces to crawl, stand and walk, to create their earliest pieces of artwork, and resources to enable them to explore their senses.  As the children grow they progress downstairs to a suite of warm homely rooms in which they can explore, create, and develop further interests.  Our pre-school children are introduced to numeracy and phonics activities whilst allowing them to continue to learn through play and discovery as they take their steps towards starting school.

All children have access to the outside areas, which include covered play areas where we provide all the learning opportunities they have inside too.  In addition to this we have a strong ethos of embracing nature and the outdoor world and we plan special activities where children can experience the great outdoors safely under the supervision of staff.
