Smarties Children´s Nursery Welcomes you!
Please feel free to have a good look around our website which will give you an in-sight of what our nursery is like and if you need any help please do not hesitate to contact us.
Smarties children´s nursery was founded in June 1987, with the current organisation formed in 2004. The nursery is easily accessible from Ripon, Harrogate and Knaresborough enabling busy working parents to drop their child off at nursery on their way to work.
The nursery is based in a large Victorian house complete with a large enclosed garden in the beautiful village of Ripley. Throughout the year children have the opportunity to explore the village, visiting the farm animals and playing in the woods and park land.
The nursery is on two floors. Upstairs we have a well-equipped and spacious baby unit. There is a modern sleep room with a calm and airy feel and two large play rooms. Downstairs our children are split into age groups, 2-3 years old and 3-4 years old. Each group has a base room but they also have access to the outside learning areas in the garden.
In addition to the above facilities we also have a large kitchen, two bathrooms, an office and a room for the use of the children attending our wrap-around care.
"Parents are children´s first and most enduring educators. When parents and practitioners work together in the early years the results have a positive impact on children´s learning and development" EYFS (2008)
Our priority is to work closely with parents nurturing your child’s imagination and development through support, guidance and praise. We look forward to meeting you and your child soon.
