Welcome to Smarties Private Day Nursery!

Smarties is situated in a residential area on the southern outskirts of Mansfield, 10 minutes from the M1 (junction 27/28) and with easy access from several main routes in and out of Mansfield.


The traditional detached property on a corner plot provides a warm, friendly, homely environment for up to 30 children each day from birth to 5 years. There is ample parking and a spacious, enclosed, secure garden and play area to the rear.


The Nursery has been owned by husband and wife team Steve and Christine Doubtfire since November 2006. Having both enjoyed careers in secondary and further education, Steve and Christine are committed to maintaining the best quality day care available, providing a high quality environment which supports the care and the educational development of the children at Smarties. A family business, Smarties is a popular, over-subscribed nursery. Please take a moment to read our most recent Ofsted report completed in  February 2016 (www.ofsted.gov.uk). Smarties was awarded outstanding in every area of care and learning for the second time, endorsing the hard work, determination and commitment of the whole nursery team on a daily basis.


We would be happy to show you round the Nursery any day between the hours of 9.30-11am and 1.30-3.30pm. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get it touch.
