  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.65 for Nelly's Nursery - Rosendale Road is calculated as follows: ( (82 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.65

    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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nelly's Nursery - Rosendale Road is based on 10 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target Reached = 1

We have only been at the nursery for two months but so far we have been very impressed by the welcoming, caring and professional staff. The settling in process was very clearly communicated to us and during the actual settling in days they were extremely clear in explaining their policies, caring about our son and so made the process so much more bearable for us.My son loves it there and having come from a different nursery environment I cannot praise Nelly's enough - I have finally got full trust again in the practitioners looking after my son.

Nelly's Rosendale Road is a fantastic nursery with warm, energetic and loving staff. Our daughter has been there for 1 year, joining at the age of two and couldn't be happier. She has made lots of friends and developed close bonds with the key workers. We particularly like the vast space of the two main rooms as well as the opportunity to play outside. We also like the structure of the play that is offered and the variety including French lessons! We feel she is really benefitting from her time there and developing as she approaches time for 'big school'.

We have recently also sent our baby son there and he has really settled in over the past two months. The staff in the baby room are so gentle and loving towards him and the space itself feels a safe place for him, whilst the occasional joint activities with the older children, we feel are good for his development. It also allows our eldest to pop in and visit him as and when she likes which is great for their bond.

My son has been at Nelly's for almost a year now and he could not be happier. The time and dedication they put into making sure he is happy, looked after and learning is amazing. I really enjoyed the nursery outing which was a lot of fun and really nice to get to know other parents and staff. They have been exceptionally helpful with us arranging for nannies and family to do pick ups when needed and have also been very accommodating on the odd day we needed to put him in to nursery on top of our regular days. He is a big lover of being outdoors and there is great outdoor space which he loves playing in and it is great to see him outside enjoying it when we come to pick him up a lot of the time. We have regular contact with his key worker who knows him very well and has a great bond, allowing us to get regular, informal and more formal updates on his progress. It's really nice to have somewhere where we know he is being well looked after and having a lot of fun with his friends, thank you!

This is a wonderful nursery where our son has been very happy for over three years. The staff at Nelly's are amazing. They are caring, creative in organising a diverse range of activities to encourage children to explore the world and accommodate each individual child's own personality and needs. Our son has many different allergies and the nursery has been extremely helpful in accommodating his condition. The staff are always very attentive to early signs of the onset of an allergic reaction. They help us find foods and arts and crafts material our son can use and generally manage to make him feel included in celebrations and activities despite his allergies.

My daughter has been at this nursery for nearly 2 years, from when she was 11 months. She’s very happy and settled there. The staff have always taken a keen interest in getting to know her and giving her opportunities to discover and develop her interests. I particularly like the positive ethos and it’s lovely to see how kind and caring the children are towards each other, fostered by an atmosphere of gentle care from the staff. I’d certainly recommend this nursery.

I chose this nursery because of its outstanding reputation, because they had a clearly separated area for babies to sleep, in their own cots (when full time) and the staff were obviously professionally prepared to care for small babies. I also liked the way that each space flows into the other, outside and inside and that the little ones get to experience mixing with the older children at some times of the day. My daughter has been there from the age of 6 months and has had a very nurturing and happy experience in the baby room. The nursery is very accommodating with details specific for each baby, such as bottle type and formula type preferred and the food menu is good and varied, with a 6-week rotating menu frequently including hot food at tea time and with a morning and evening snack. Although the outside space at this branch is limited, it is sufficient and the children spend a good amount of time there.

Couldn't recommend the nursery more. The staff are warm, kind, friendly and everything you would want from your child's carers. My little one is so happy here and is learning every day. Food and toys are excellent and I feel like they are on top of everything with regards safeguarding.

Such a fantastic nursery, I could not praise it more. Our experience has been entirely positive since starting almost a year ago and I feel that our son has been introduced to a huge range of activities that have helped to develop him as a person. We receive daily updates on his activities, food eaten (which is a really good standard) and any concerns if applicable. The relationship between both us as parents and the nursery workers is amazing with 1:1 meetings as well as written communication. The relationship that he has with the staff, the most important element, is said by him excited to go to nursery, running up and showing true affection.
The space and facilities is what sold us, providing him with freedom and stimulation whilst also encouraging his understanding on what is right or wrong.
I particularly love the fact that they leave the nursery to go to nearby parks and arrange outings and provide celebrations that involve the parents at poignant parts of the year.
