Early Years Professionals

SMART takes an innovative approach to early years care and teaching. Our curriculum blends traditional British values with an outdoor Scandinavian philosophy, both of which are underpinned by the Montessori approach of learning through experience in the environment using reasoning, imagination and creativity. We are proud to say that our brilliant teachers have helped our little ones become happy and well-developed children, who have gone on to great prep schools in the local area.  

“A blessing for any parent looking for a nurturing and enriching environment for their child”

Parent, Wimbledon Hill Preschool

We know that our achievements would not be possible without our outstanding teachers and the family atmosphere that they create. SMART looks to support our team and we encourage members to attend courses and develop their own teaching expertise through self-directed reading. Continuing ongoing development is central to all our team members. 

Perhaps most importantly, we want each one of our teachers to feel part of a great team that has a meaningful impact on the lives, educations and happiness of children. This is what drives SMART. 

“The support I receive to further my own education whilst supporting the education of our little children is brilliant!”
