growing and having fun together

Smarties Slide2

Smarties Pre School

and Out of School


We are an established, community based childcare facility in Steeple Morden, South Cambridgeshire, (5 miles from Royston) open for Preschool and Out of School (breakfast Club, After School Club and Holiday Club) for 48 weeks of the year.


We have a team of 11 staff, many of whom are level 3 qualified and are very experienced.  We use the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework as our basis for all of our activities.  Our daily routines also consist of plenty of outdoor play (whatever the weather!), story times, free play, themed activities and our well known Smarties 'grown-ups' song.  We follow a healthy eating plan offering breakfast, snack times and a hot tea (for our after school club).  Children bring their own packed lunches to pre school for our midday meal.


We are located inbetween the village church and primary school.  Pre School children have their own dedicated, fully supervised, outdoor play area.  We also have direct access to the school playground via a double door exit at the back of the building for our after school and holiday club.




Our Ethos

At Smarties we pride ourselves on offering a safe environment where all our children can grow and have fun together. We follow best practice and aim for the highest standards in everything we do.  We enjoy integrating with our community, with the village church, the primary school, our post office and our Village Hall.  Our staff regularly undertake training for courses relevant to their particular roles.  We give our children a good balance of activities, play time, outdoor play, free time,structure and learning and promote good behaviour and kindness at all times.
