The nursery has three bright, spacious and stimulating rooms for babies up to the age of two, two to four-year-olds.

Good Buddies have a multi-sensory room called 'The Sensory Cosy Cove'. This is a place where all children can explore and develop their senses and skills.The room has many different features; soft play areas, treasure baskets, a light box and interactive equipment such as a bubble tube, water wall and fibre optic strand tree which make constant changes to the sensory room environment.

Good Buddies Daycare is a 'full service' nursery. This means it provides everything your child/ren will need from nappies and wet wipes to sun cream. All meals are included in its full service fees. All food is made fresh on the premises daily by the nursery cook.

The children are encouraged to make their own snacks and the nursery also encourages the children to self serve all meals with support from highly qualified staff.

Reviews

8.7 Good Buddies Daycare has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.720)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Good Buddies Daycare 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Good Buddies Daycare in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 3 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 4.765 for Good Buddies Daycare is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.765

  • 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 3.955 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Good Buddies Daycare is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6.6 Target = 0.455

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

My son has attended the nursery since he was 8 months old he's now 18 months and he has come on so much with his confidence, speech and motor skills. I strongly believe this is down to the staff there. They encourage him so much to learn new things. The environment is so friendly and welcoming for both children and parents and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I moved my child to this nursery from another that I felt wasn't delivering enough pre-school activities. I have been extremely happy with the care and activities that Good Buddies Daycare have given my daughter. The manager was very welcoming, listened to my concerns and delivered on all her promises. My 4-year-old settled in quickly and within a few weeks had developed the skills I felt she needed to be ready for Reception. If you are looking for a nursery with a personal touch, which treats the children as individuals, then I would recommend this nursery.

My 2-year-old daughter goes to Good Buddies Daycare and has done since she was 10 months old. She loves going and gets excited every morning when I drop her off. All the members of staff are lovely and make not only my daughter feel at ease, but myself and my wife too.

My son started in July after he turned 1 and I returned to work. I was very anxious but the staff were fantastic with my son and me, putting us both at ease quickly. The management are friendly, yet professional, knowledgeable and hands on. My son has blossomed here and is a very happy well adjusted toddler who simply adores going to nursery. I couldn't ask for a better experience.

Good Buddies Daycare is a fantastic nursery in which my son has progressed so much through his learning, speech and understanding thanks to all of the dedicated hard-working staff. I always worried my son wouldn't settle and was a slow learner due to his premature birth. However, in the 6 months he has been there he can now use speech and even refuses to come home with me he loves it that much. I have also been pregnant the whole time my son has attended and I couldn't ask for more supportive caring staff, who continue to help me due to my own complications that I have experienced and who always help regarding appointments.
