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.)

      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.

My daughter has been attending Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston since she was 7-months-old, from the moment the door opened we fell in love with it. All the staff are so friendly and whoever opens the door greets us with a smile and a warm welcome. Leaving your precious baby in the care of someone else is the hardest thing to do but at Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston, they make it very easy. My daughter loves her day at nursery. The online journal they use is great, it's updated throughout the day so you can login at any time and see what she has been up to. They really encourage outdoor play which is great as their garden area is lovely. The interaction from the key worker is amazing too, they really do bond with your little one. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Alveston, it really is a fantastic nursery that has so many personal touches it feels like you are leaving your child with your family.

My son has been going to Natural Choice Nurseries in Alveston since he was 12 months old and he loves it. The staff are so friendly and really care about each child. His development really benefits from being in the nursery environment and the staff work really hard to encourage children to learn and develop a sense of independence. The nursery feels very homely and the staff go the extra mile to help parents and children feel comfortable whilst the child is at the nursery. The online journal provides us with updates about what my son has been doing each week whilst at nursery as well as photos which we love looking through. I would thoroughly recommend Natural Choice Nurseries to any parent.

I think that Natural Choice Nurseries Alveston is an amazing place. My daughter first went when she was 11 months and has enjoyed her years there. The staff all work really hard and do a fantastic job. I have always found it to be a warm, friendly place and my daughter has always loved going.

I am so pleased we got a place for my little boy at Natural Choice Nursery Ltd. The care from the staff is excellent. I didn't know what I was doing as this is my first child and the staff could not have been more welcoming and reassuring through the settling in period. That level of care has continued and I feel confident that my son is not only well cared for while I am at work but that he is having a lot of fun. His key worker has been on hand to answer all my queries and they have worked with me on every detail of my little boy's day to day care, taking the time to understand his routine. This has made the transition of going back to work and starting nursery so easy for both of us. It is a lovely setting, with lots of varied activities for his development and a very high standard of meals. Communication is excellent both through the website learning journal and from staff on a day to day basis. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Natural Choice Nursery Ltd.

My daughter has been going to Natural Choice Nursery in Alveston for over a year now since she turned one. The staff are amazing. The relationships they have with the children are great, my daughter is always happy and loves all of the staff. She's allowed time outside to play when she wants to, and the garden area is great. They also do a lot of other activities and crafts which she wouldn't do at home. I occasionally email in for updates and get a fast response with real-time photos which is such a nice touch. They use an online learning journal, so we can see what she's been up to easily from home and are able to share things from home with the nursery as well. The food is varied and must be good as usually we're told she's had seconds! It's so nice to have no worries or concerns about the people and the company looking after my child. They have rigorous collection and child protection procedures in place for peace of mind.

My son thoroughly enjoys his time at Natural Choice Nurseries and has built good relationships with his key workers. He's always busy and the staff do an excellent job of giving him a wide variety of activities and opportunities to play and learn. The staff are warm and friendly and really know the children they work with and are very understanding of fussy parents too! I know that when I leave my son at nursery he will have outstanding care and a lot of fun!

My daughter is about to turn 3. She has been attending this nursery since she was 6m old.
I cannot praise the staff highly enough, such amazing people! I have watched my daughter developing, knowing that a large portion of this is down to the care and attention at nursery.
As a first time mum, I was so worried about leaving her with someone else. This was the only nursery I found (I looked at many!) where I felt complete trust in the staff. I have absolutely 100% confidence that they look after my daughter professionally, appropriately and with so much care and attention.
A huge thing for me is that all staff are trained in baby/child first aid and resuscitation. Obviously, no one ever wants to use these skills, but if it was required, you would want a trained person in the same room as your child. Other nurseries only have 1 trained member on site, that could mean on break/different room.
I wouldn't want her going anywhere else!

Our son started at Natural Choice Nursery in Feb 2014 when he was 7 months old. He is now 3 1/2 years old and in the pre-school room. From the very beginning, we have been extremely pleased with the care our son receives. We have watched him learn so much as he progressed to the toddler room, to the 2-3's room and now as a pre-schooler. The carers are all amazing, incredibly caring and patient with the children. They do a wide range of activities each day and our son has a great time learning with his friends. The children are encouraged to do things for themselves, to help each other and have good manners. Our son has developed good relationships with all the carers and has made lots of little friends which we hope he will keep when he starts infant school next year.

Would recommend this nursery to anyone. Staff are very caring and kind, they have a great sense of humour and encourage children of all ages. The food looks and smells fabulous and is very varied. They helped with potty training in a very professional manner. My daughter loves her days at nursery and is always happy and smiling when she comes home. Activities are varied with personal attention (birthday cards made for siblings etc) and plenty of outside play is encouraged. Many thanks to them for helping her settle in and supporting a worried/guilty parent! Don't feel guilty anymore only slightly jealous as she has so much fun!
