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.

    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.

    The 3.98 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Noddy's Nursery School (Gwendolen Ave) is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

My daughter is just over 2 and she absolutely loves Noddy's.
There are a lot of activities like mini sports, dancing, singing etc throughout the day, but above all, the carers are amazing and create a warm and homely environment for my little one.

My son is 3 years old. He loves going to Noddy's. Staff are very friendly and he has made a number of friends in his room. The daily activities are amazing. He does crafts, singing, phonics, plays in the garden, learns about seasons etc. He also does small sports, music, drama and is about to start French. My son is always given opportunities to learn further. All staff clearly follow policies and are consistent in their approach. Managers are knowledgeable as well as approachable. The food is fantastic and children's needs are always taken into account.

The staff and the other children make Noddy's a very special happy place. They went through a phase of quite high staff turnover a year or so ago, but I think the management have listened to the staff's concerns and this has been rectified.
My son has special needs and his key carers were all brilliant, dedicated and went the extra (several) miles. He was very well socialised when he moved to a specialist setting and has thrived since.
My daughter has now moved on to Reception at school and has settled in very easily because she was so well prepared. Her literacy and numeracy are at the top of her class. She is also mature amongst her peers and is loving the school environment and learning in general because the Aqua Room staff made sure she was ready.
We are still in touch with all her nursery friends and their families and she has a very healthy social life outside of school as a result. And we have also made "friends for life" in a number of the other parents.

I have had two children at Noddy's for 3+ years each, and I cannot recommend the nursery highly enough! Exceptionally good care, the kids LOVED all the key workers (in fact my oldest one insisted on inviting hers to her 4th birthday party :). Everything runs smoothly, the administration is well organised and efficient, food is better than what I cook (I am told, on good authority), the activities they do are just exceptional (tennis! woodwork! small sports! music with Jane! dancing! etc., etc., etc.). The kids spend a good amount of time outside too, and the routines are flexible enough to accommodate individual requirements (e.g. my little one still naps while most of his group doesn't, so he goes into another class for his nap). The girls are so very kind, and obviously passionate about the kids, the job, etc.
We will miss Noddy's dearly once our little one leaves next summer and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone considering a nursery place.
