Meet The Team

We pride ourselves on the high-quality experience and expertise of our staff team at Smarties. We invest in our team by offering them a range of training opportunities, individually tailored to their needs. 

All staff working at Smarties are fully qualified, holding a level 3 qualification in childcare. The management team have completed their BA hons in Early Years, which has given them a wealth of knowledge about working and supporting children and their families.

Within our senior team, we have a qualified teacher working within our preschool room and a senior practitioner who holds their Early Years Professional status. We recognise the importance of upskilling our practitioners to ensure we can continue to provide outstanding childcare. 

All of our team members are Paediatric First Aid trained and we are extremely proud to have gained the endorsement of Millie’s Mark. Millie’s Mark is awarded as a special endorsement to childcare providers in England and Scotland that go way above and beyond minimum requirements by having 100% of staff trained in paediatric first aid.
