    The Review Score of 9.454 for Beeches Nursery is based on 10 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the nursery is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.883 for Beeches Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (106 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.883

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a nursery. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • Any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this care provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a nursery requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of children) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a nursery has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of children to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a nursery with 40 children has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

      The Quantity Score of 4.571 for Beeches Nursery is calculated as follows:

      1. 10 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 10 Positive Reviews = 1.000

      3. (10 Positive Reviews ÷ 35 Children) x 2 = 0.571

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1). There are 5 Points available for the total number of positive Recommendations/Reviews submitted in relation to the number of child places at the Day Nursery.

My daughter has been at Beeches from age 1 and is currently in the pre-school room. The staff in every room listen to the children and parents then provide care and learning for that child's needs. The toys and learning aids in each room are for the specific age range to encourage and support their development. We have had a number of behavioural issues at home recently but after mentioning these to the pre-school staff they proactively worked with my daughter and us to manage and overcome them using their wealth of knowledge and experience. The pre-school projects they take part in e.g. planning, designing and holding a festival, planning, designing and going on safari, are amazing and very inspiring for the children. My daughter will be starting school in September and I just hope school can continue to inspire, challenge and develop her in the same way Beeches has. I can't thank the staff enough for the care and support they have given us over the last 4 years.

This nursery is one of the best in my experience. The staff are fanaticism and although lately there have been a few leave/room changes etc. it has not been disruptive to the children and they always seem very happy. My daughter has been here since 6 months old and through every stage of her care, learning, needs, food and hygiene requests have always been met to the highest standard.
Would definitely recommend.

Beeches Nursery is a fantastic nursery. Both of our children have attended Beeches Nursery and we felt comfortable and confident with the staff from our very first look round and the invaluable home visits. We have always been happy to leave our children here in the mornings even on the occasion they have been upset to see us go. They have made good friends and been well prepared for school.

The staff are all very professional and provide first class care whilst treating each child as an individual and taking the time to get to know them, forming close bonds. Activities are planned very well. Communication between the nursery has been excellent. We always feel very valued and listened to regardless of the topic. I feel our daughter has come on hugely with her social skills and general development since joining the nursery. I would highly recommend it.

My two have been at Beeches for 6 months and love it. The care they have received in the baby room is outstanding. The home visit before they joined was a great idea. The variety of fun things they do is vast, today a zoo brought snakes and giant snails and lizards for them to see and touch, I've received lots of photos today which is a regular occurrence so I don't feel like I miss out too much!
They both have eczema which the staff are happy to support in keeping under control which can be time consuming. Nothing ever seems too much trouble.
All the staff are so friendly, even in other rooms. My two have started to transition to the toddler room and the staff are doing everything they can to ensure they are happy with the change, it's very reassuring.
