The benefits of working with Smarties

Generous holiday entitlement

The nursery staff holiday entitlement is very generous. It offers several more days of holiday than the industry standard.

Sick pay entitlement

Just like our holiday entitlement Smarties Nursery supports its staff beyond the industry standard. The nursery will support you if you are ill through a sick pay entitlement, as well as sick pay if your child is ill.

Discounted Child Care

As a member of staff, you will receive a  heavily discounted place for your child/ren at Smarties Nursery.

Loyalty Bonus Scheme

We pay our staff a cash bonus every year of £125 who complete a full year of contracted work, demonstrate a strong attendance record and receive a positive performance review

Long Service Bonus Scheme

We also reward our staff who stay with us year on year:

2 years (£200)

5 years (£250)

10 years’ service (£350)


To recognise and reward the great staff we have at Smarties, we reward employees through a monthly ‘Team Member of the Month Award’. Every month staff will receive a £25 shopping voucher when they receive a recommendation from a parent and/or the Nursery Manager.

Referral Scheme

Smarties is a great place to work! Smarties staff earn a £125 reward when they refer a new member of staff to work at the nursery.

Flexible Working

The team at Smarties understand that flexibility is important to our staff. We, therefore, offer various working patterns.
