We appreciate the trust our parents place in us and greatly value all opinions in order to deliver quality childcare and maintain a safe environment for the children to flourish.
Take a look at our nursery reviews below from Facebook and Google.
I wouldn't want my son to go to any other nursery - Smart Start carers are excellent, and go out of their way to ensure that the children are happy and well cared for. Highly recommended.
We found that the task of choosing the right place and the right people to leave the most valuable person in your world quite daunting. From the very first visit we were blown away by the staff at Smart Start and how much of a family feel it has. Our child has been with Smart Start since he was 9 months old and will leave shortly to go to school and we couldn’t have wished for a better nursery. The staff have been amazing, helping to nurture and develop our son into a confident little boy who is constantly stretched and supported. When he has been nervous or hesitant they have helped him to be confident. When he has shown an interest in something they have worked with that topic to develop skills across the early years curriculum in a way that engages him. His key workers have all been fantastic and the amount of time and energy they invest in the child as an individual is a credit to them all. It will be with a heavy heart that we leave Smart Start to begin the next step in his development and we will leave behind a lot of friends. I would highly recommend Smart Start to anyone, I would encourage you to go along and meet the staff and see how happy the children are there, you won’t be disappointed.
Friendly and helpful staff. Both my kids enjoyed themselves a lot in smart start and build good rapport with the carers.
Such a great nursery ! The ladies are all lovely and my son loves going to smart start. He started with just two days a week but is now going to do four days. He learns so much, always something going on and the atmosphere is brilliant. Couldn't recommend smart start highly enough.
Brilliant my son learns so much there! Friendly and helpful. And he always comes away smiling! Makes my job easier knowing they take good care of him. Love the App updates on his day whats he has done and pictures we receive.
We definitely recommend this nursery! Nathan loves going to the nursery and we feel confident leaving him there as we know he is in good hands. Staff is always smiling and they take good care of Nathan. He is learning new things all the time which is great! Every day we can t wait for the staff to update on their app new things about Nathan and also to show us pictures with him having fun at the nursery. One thing that is missing to this nursery are the live webcams,but I think here in the Uk are not as common as they are in other countries.
My daughter has been going to Smart Start since she was 10 months old - she is now 3 and absolutely loves going to nursery. The staff who work with my daughter know her really well, paying so much attention to her at nursery and even in her home life. The food is very heathy and my daughter is always excited to go to nursery for breakfast. Another fantastic addition to the educational care is the music man and Spanish teacher that visit weekly. We are really pleased with our choice of nursery and will be sad to say goodbye when my daughter goes to school.
This nursery is amazing, my baby has turned into a little girl and the staff who have cared for her have watched her turn from a baby to a little girl. She loves going to nursery and has made some very special friends. I would recommend to anybody who is trying to decide where to sent their children. The staff are so thoughtful in their daily activities too, its just great xx
Fantastic home from home feeling. All staff are warm and welcoming. I felt so happy going back to work with my daughter going to this nursery knowing how lovely the environment around her would be. I cannot recommend enough.
Smart start has proven to be one of the best nurseries we've experienced, the staff truly care about the wellbeing and development of the children from all perspectives.The encouragement, nurturing and guidance the children receive is evident in their behaviour and achievements. The bonds that the children develop both with each other and with their key workers is testament to the knowledge, experience and professionalism of the team.

I could not be more thankful to the Smart Start staff. Leaving my son to return to work was stressful but within the first two days, the staff had made my son and myself so comfortable and filled with confidence to be part of this nursery. Straight from viewing the nursery myself and my husband knew this nursery was for us. Thank you to all the staff members.
