Our Ethos & Vision
At Smiley we believe in care and nurture in a homely environment. We are inspired by The Curiosity Approach which has values we already believed in, open ended experiences, hygge, loose parts, schemas and much more. We immerse the children in real life objects and experiences to invite exploration and learning. We set up invitations to play and provoke thought processes encouraging trial and error. We are passionate about learning outdoors and our play areas are quirky and fun. We aim for our children to become unique individuals, independent learners and confident risk takers.
