Reviews

9.8 Daisy Chain Childcare Lofthouse has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.790)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Daisy Chain Childcare Lofthouse is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 50 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Daisy Chain Childcare Lofthouse in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 20 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.79 for Daisy Chain Childcare Lofthouse is calculated as follows: ( (478 Excellents x 5) + (116 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 599 Ratings = 4.79

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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 Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Daisy Chain Childcare Lofthouse is based on 20 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Daisy Chain has always provided excellent care for my daughter. The nursery makes use of its outdoor space and provides a range of stimulating activities for the children. The staff always make everyone feel welcome and they go out of their way to make each child feel special. The nursery management keeps us well informed of progress and arrange a number of activities to include parents. We are able to trace our daughter's development via their tapestry app and it also allows us real time updates on our daughters day.

My daughter has been attending Daisy Chain for a few months now and it has made a big difference to her confidence and personality. My daughter is much more out going and really enjoys attending nursery. She is always involved in all activities including a sports day held last month. All the staff are very polite and friendly and I never have any issues or concerns about her at the nursery.

My little boy didn't start until he was nearly 2 years old, so it was quite hard for him and myself starting nursery. But as soon as we went to visit and met some of the staff I knew it would be fine. The staff are so nice here, all very friendly and warming, they make you feel at ease. The activities they do with the children are great, both indoors and outdoors.
We get notifications when our child is doing fun things, even eating/sleeping so this is fab when you're sat a work worrying how they are getting on. The meals are great, such a good variety and all freshly made, the children are spoilt.
It's a very nice and warming place and feels very secure, they don't care how many times you call them to check up on your little one.
The fact that the staff are so nice has made it a lot easier to settle in.
Very happy mummy.

My two children - ages 1 and 3 - attend the nursery 4 days a week. We are consistently impressed with the standard of care, attentiveness and professionalism demonstrated by the staff. Daily activities are often planned in response to our childrens' interests and the staff invest time in building a good relationship with the children and parents.

The manager is always open to and responsive to feedback and I must also give special mention to the cook who keeps our children well fed with a varied menu.

Overall, we would not hesitate to recommend the nursery to others.

Both my children have been really happy going to nursery. My eldest talks about the staff all the time and looks forward to going every week. I've always felt entirely comfortable leaving them and that the staff genuinely care about them. I like the way they talk to me about my children as individuals; they obviously know them really well.

Overall myself and my children, more importantly, love Daisy Chain.
The staff can't do enough for the kids and right from 8am in the morning and playing laughing and joking with them,

My 1st daughter started at 6month the same as my second daughter just recently and I feel like the baby room could do with a few new bits adding as there don't seem to be as many bouncers/walkers soft play toys as what I remember, I have recently given my feedback on this and believe they are in process of ordering some new equipment which is great that feedback such as this is taken on board.

My son loves nursery and has a great relationship with his key workers and friends. He eats very healthy meals and enjoys the circle time and special guests/instructors (i.e Music Phonics). The girls are supporting my son with his speech and toilet training which are the two areas he needs the most support in currently. The team are also supportive and understanding of my son's occasional poor behaviour due to his speed delay. We feel confident that we are told openly and honestly when our son has had a good or bad day.

My child has attended this nursery since he was very young, he settled in well and this was all down to the warm staff and exceptional environment the nursery had to offer. An outstanding nursery of a high standard! My child starts school in September and I believe Daisy Chain Childcare Lofthouse has been the important start to his younger years and has prepared him well for starting school. The nursery has brought him on a lot with the learning they do mixed with the free play and outdoor time they get.

Both of my children have attended Daisy Chain Lofthouse, my youngest still being there.
All staff on site are very caring towards the children and all children are cared for based on their individual needs. There is no 'One size fits all' attitude here as the care for each child is specific to them. Both of my children have thrived here and I feel confident that they receive outstanding care whilst under the care of Daisy Chain. All staff are very approachable and friendly and make even the parents feel welcome on a morning.

As our son had started 'big school' in January this year he didn't want to come to nursery anymore for his one day as it was for babies... or so he said.

The girls did a brilliant job convincing him otherwise and he's happy to go now as he has been for the last 3 years! They've incorporated what he would do at school into his day at nursery and it's helping him a great deal, now we don't get the toddler tantrums when it's nursery and not school!!

Choosing a nursery can be very daunting for a parent never mind a child too, I can't fault Daisy Chain, they've been excellent since day one and I wouldn't hesitate one bit recommending them to anyone. For us this environment Daisy Chain provides is better for a child of preschool age, they're in and around kids their own age which I personally think helps their progression.

I know when September comes he will miss the staff, I imagine they will miss him too and we can't thank them enough for starting his schooling off the way they have!

Both my children have been to Daisy Chain and thrived there. They do a wide range of activities every day and my daughter comes home every day full of enthusiasm for what she has been up to (which in the elves preschool class could be learning French or phonics for which they have dedicated teachers coming in for). Would highly recommend for high-quality childcare.

Such a great place. My daughter runs through the door each morning looking forward to the day ahead. All her key workers have been so welcoming and she really has got on very well with them all. It provides me with such peace of mind that she is happy each day. Food is varied and by all accounts very tasty! Good mixture of events to join in with too. Thanks, Daisy Chain!

My 21-month-old daughter has been attending this nursery since she was 12 months old so she is now in the second room (Imps), the transition from the baby room (Pixies) to Imps was organised and managed very well, my daughter had visiting sessions and would often peep through the glass in the door excitedly before she was fully moved into there. She settled so well and I am positive that the care of all staff helped her to feel at home in her new room, she is fully established and absolutely loves attending nursery and enjoys all aspects of daily nursery life. I love receiving the feedback from the nursery, be it verbal, written or by email notification of a tapestry update. I feel fully confident in the care that the staff provide and feel that they really do care.

He is starting to look forward to it every week now and it's down to their patience, brilliant childcare skills and all-round loveliness!

My daughter attended Daisy Chain nursery for 3 and a half years.
During this time she has blossomed both socially and academically.
It's been the perfect step before school.
They have a good mixture of staff and it's always apparent to see the kids enjoying the environment.
The extra social events such as sports days, graduation, Father's Day breakfast, Mother's Day tea are a nice touch and make parents feel more a part of nursery life.
It takes bigs hearts to help shape little minds and this really does show at Daisy Chain Rothwell.

We've had no tears when I drop him off as there is so much going on he is just mesmerised. The staff are lovely and genuinely seem to care. I'm so glad we chose this nursery.

My daughter started Daisy Chain in Pixies last year and I cannot praise the staff enough for how well they looked after her, how she progressed in such a short space of time and how attached she became to her key worker.
We were really sad when she had to move up to the next class as she had such a good bond with her key worker and the other children, but within a week she settled into the next class well. She has made more friends, is very active and is really happy to see everyone when I drop her off in the morning.

My son has attended the nursery since May 2014. I have had no problems or any concerns. My son gets on very well with the staff and although he is too young to tell me, I do believe he enjoys himself there.
The staff are always happy and are very friendly. It is one of the more expensive nurseries, I do believe it is value for money and I am happy with the service they provide so much so that my daughter starts this April.

Daisy Chain Lofthouse is brilliant, my daughter started here in January and everyone has been brilliant. The staff are very professional yet very approachable and easy to talk to, they are always calm and polite and seem to genuinely love being with the children.
The nursery manager has been amazing from when I booked my Daughter in 9 months ago to today she knows everyone's name. The staff are fun, efficient but kind and take the time to speak to you individually. I cannot thank the nurses enough how they look after my daughter, I would 100% recommend to anyone.
Communication is brilliant and the activities they do with the kids is always interesting and tailored to the children's interests. Fantastic place!

Fantastic nursery - could not ask for more. Our daughter is 11 months and has settled in so well. Lovely facilities, always a calm and happy atmosphere. Staff are great! Nothing is ever too much trouble and they do an amazing job of keeping parents fully informed.
The little touches such as pictures on tapestry/ daily reports means a lot and shows they really do get to know the children so well. We would like to say a big thank you for everything, our key worker and Daisy Chain have done for our little girl so far.

My son joined Daisy Chain in April 2015 and really enjoys attending. The staff are very friendly, attentive and caring and I totally trust them to look after my 17 month old. They provide a wide range of activities from painting, to dance classes to sensory room. He loves it. Very impressed and would highly recommend.

I am very happy with the nursery. My boy has settled in really well and very happy with staff all friendly and welcoming with a smile on their face to greet you and your child. When my boy first started I was scared of how he would be but staff have made it very easy and trusting for us both. He has settled in so well. Would not think to take him anywhere else. Love the nursery.

My daughter has been going to Daisy Chain Lofthouse for nearly a year and a half now - she started at 7 months of age - and I cannot overstate how happy we are with their service. The staff here are lovely and friendly, and take very good care of our toddler. With the experience of having sent our daughter to another nursery for a few days in the beginning, we can say for sure that Daisy Chain Lofthouse's staff set the nursery apart. We get the feeling that everyone here genuinely loves being around children and caring for them - as against this just being a job for them (which is what it felt like at the other nursery).
Both the key workers my daughter has had till now (in the two rooms she has been in) have been wonderful. Their attention to detail is impressive, which has been a major factor of comfort for us, especially as our daughter has some medical needs that often require regular care. Nothing's too difficult for the girls at Daisy Chain Lofthouse, and they do it all with a smile, which makes me less guilty/embarrassed when I have to make frequent requests for special care.
Also, it gladdens us that our little one's keyworker pays attention to her likes and passions, and routinely gets her to do activities she enjoys. And there are days when our daughter would refuse to get back home as she's having too much fun at the nursery!!
Another aspect that we love here is the daily online update which has become even better now with a new system in place. It's great to see pics/videos and exchange comments with the keyworker easily. In addition, the staff are always happy to give you updates over the phone. There have been times when I have been trigger-happy in dialing them up half a dozen times within a day, and they responded with care and empathy each and every time.
In summary, we find it a great place for our little one to spend her formative years. Highly recommended!

Absolutely wonderful nursery with fantastic staff who really go out of their way to get to know the children. Activities are built around the interests of the individual children and staff go out of their way to help children settle as they move through the nursery. My daughter loves going to this nursery and has had a great relationship with all her key workers and is always ready to tell me what fun things she has been doing throughout the day, I would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone.

My son is about to start school following 2years at Daisy Chain. I couldn't recommend this nursery highly enough, they have been brilliant, so warm and welcoming. They do a good mixture of play and learning activities, some lead by current children's interest. They have always been approachable and supportive to both my son and us as parents! We are all really sad not be go going any more!

I cannot recommend this nursery enough. Our little boy has his last day today before going to school and we'll all be very sad he's leaving. He has been so well looked after, has learnt so much from his 2 years here and has become a very confident little boy. The girls here make lots of time for both one to one time and time spent in groups and seeing his progress each week has been fantastic. I think we have the only child who doesn't want to come home on a night because he's enjoying himself so much. The Manager and her team are fantastic both with communication and keeping our children safe in this fantastic environment, both indoors and out. They also have a dedicated chef who cooks all meals from scratch each day with fresh ingredients and we're always amazed by what our little boy eats. I can't recommend enough.

I had never used a private nursery prior to sending my youngest child here at 1 year old. My other two children went to a childminders.
I looked at several nurseries for my son, some of which I was not comfortable with but felt immediately at ease when I walked into this nursery. All the children looked happy and content, all the staff were friendly and helpful. I liked all the individual rooms and all the equipment on offer to the children.
My son has now been going for 2 years and has come on leaps and bounds so much so I have just managed to secure an extra day for him even if this means I no longer have my day with him!
The activities that are done with children are fun and educational and all the staff are lovely. They also involve the parents in lots of activities like sports days, Mother's Day Afternoon Tea etc which are all great fun and the children seem to enjoy it when the mums and dads go in.
Initially I was worried my son would not receive enough 1-1 attention with it being a nursery environment but I have been proved wrong!
If I had another child (unlikely) or knew someone wanting an excellent nursery I wouldn't hesitate to recommend

Everyone is extremely friendly and willing to help. They go the extra mile with all the children, especially when the children are overcoming a development milestone, they offer encouragement and support. My son absolutely loves going to pixies everyday and is a different person for doing so, he is so sociable with others and always shares toys and food, this all a credit to the girls at Daisy Chain!

I have been very impressed with my daughter's care whilst at this nursery. The only reason I am moving my child is because I needed an additional day and they didn't have availability due to being so popular! The staff are very friendly and professional and made a great effort to get to know me and my daughter personally. Particularly when my daughter was struggling to adjust to being at nursery the staff went the extra mile to help her settle in well and she soon loved it. The nursery has great facilities and is very clean.

I thought I will let you know how happy we feel about your staff member as our key worker for our daughter. The minute she walks into the room she picks her up and gives her a cuddle. Our daughters face glows with happiness whenever she sees her. Our key worker gives attention to detail to every single little thing we say to her. I have seen her running around and playing with our daughter many times, just like a kid and I think our daughter is very comfortable and happy around her. Every time I drop her off with her key worker, I feel she is in safe hands. We are very glad to have her as the key person for our little precious one.
