We are a child day care nursery based conveniently in the centre of Colchester town centre. We have capacity for 31 children aged 1-5 years old. We currently have spaces available for 2, 3 and 4 years old as well as 30 hours free funding spaces for September 2019.

All of our staff are highly qualified, caring and nurturing childcare practitioners. All children are cared for individually to make sure they get the most out of their time with us whilst of course having fun!!!

At smiles we try to keep the cost of childcare down by only charging for the hours you need. We offer 2 year old funding and 3 year old funding. Also 30 hours of free childcare funding spaces now available! We also offer various discount schemes too, including NHS and military discounts. Find out more about our fees and sessions.

We offer a holiday club, please contact us for details.

Exciting Times Ahead!

Our time has come to an end at our current Queen Street premises. As of Monday 28 October we are moving just down the road to North Hill, a 5 minute walk away. We are still situated in the town centre and by many bus stops. Our new building is bigger and better and we will have our very own outside space! We value the support from all of our parents and carers over the last 15 years and hope you will join us on our new adventure.
