About Smarty Pants

Our school has been created to meet the needs of your child at each stage of their development. Smarty Pant’s philosophy is to provide a loving, safe, and secure atmosphere in which each child has an opportunity to develop emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually.

Our daycare has developed an age appropriate educational curriculum that exceeds state requirements, while allowing your child to learn through play. Our Preschool program will expose your child to a variety of teaching methods. In doing so, you will have the confidence that your child will be able to enter the elementary school of your choice.

All daycare staff members are First Aid and CPR certified. To keep our staff knowledgeable of the newest child care techniques, all full time staff members are required to attend several training classes in child development through out the year.

Smarty Pants Daycare & Preschool is open 12 months a year from 6:30 A.M. to 6:30 P.M., Monday thru Friday. You will be asked to designate your child’s hours of attendance at the time of enrollment. Smarty Pants Daycare and Preschool is a fully licensed daycare operating under the rules and regulations of New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS). Our goal is to provide an environment that is both loving and secure. We provide stimulating and safe activities for children that provide learning experiences while playing.
