Smarden Pre School has provided childcare for the village and local area for over 25 years in various formats, all of which, until recently, have been volunteer run.
In September 2019 this changed when we became part of the TKAT family (The Kemnal Academy Trust) who already run both Smarden and Pluckley primary schools and many other schools throughout the South East. Moving away from the volunteer-run model has secured the long term future of the setting.
The setting itself is operated and managed by our excellent team of caring and enthusiastic staff. All staff members have appropriate childcare qualifications, enhanced DBS certificates, are trained in paediatric first aid and undergo regular safeguarding training.
