The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Happy Stars Day Nursery Ltd 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 32 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Happy Stars Day Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.839 for Happy Stars Day Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (324 Excellents x 5) + (58 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 384 Ratings = 4.839

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Happy Stars Day Nursery Ltd is based on 16 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 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 5 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.

Thank you for choosing Happy Stars Day Nursery.

My husband and I are delighted with the level of care and attention our son receives at Happy Stars Day Nursery Ltd. He has settled in very quickly and I had no qualms leaving him in the capable hands of his key worker/ nursery staff. The atmosphere in the nursery is wonderful - My son rarely wants to go home at the end of the day as he is having so much fun! There is an excellent partnership between nursery and home and I've been impressed with the constant variety of activities on offer. Highly recommended.

My son started only a month ago and I feel he is getting used to it very quickly with the help of the staff. Very pleased with suggested potty training. The kids are looked after properly. I'm happy with the learning activities they provide.

Thank you for your lovely review, we are glad you choose Happy Stars to send your little one to.

Staff are always welcoming and friendly and genuinely care for my child's development - my son has learnt so much vocab and skills in only 11 months of full-time care. Daily feedback is given when I pick up and I am given updates on personal development.

Thank you so much for your lovely review and it's amazing to see how your little one has developed in such a short space of time.

Happy Stars Day Nursery is a wonderful place. Both of my children love this nursery.
Staff are friendly and very enthusiastic with the children. The nursery is filled with all sort of activities: sand, water, toys and even a garden area where children can look after the plants. The nursery is also offering extra activities as music and drama.
Furthermore, there are times when children can visit our local library, and rent some books.
I would highly recommend it!

Thank - You for your fantastic feedback, we love having both little ones in Happy Stars. The support you give us is amazing.

This is a small nursery with excellent staff, truly affectionate and warm towards kids. My son loves it there and is happy to go there every morning. There is a lot of activities happening such as field trips, theme weeks (e.g. nursery rhythm week) outings. Food is prepared freshly on a daily basis and the nursery can accommodate children with various food intolerances. Good atmosphere and feedback for parents. I would recommend it highly to other parents.

Thank - you so much for the lovely review and for all your support towards towards Happy Stars.

My son is my second child at Happy Stars, I could not have thought of a better nursery to send him to. The staff are friendly, approachable and always try and help or provide any information that we may need. When my daughter graduated in July we were in tears because of the amount of love she had received and she had developed tremendously. The nursery always encourages parents involvement and their breakfast mornings are a great oportunity to see children in their environment and spend time with them. The nursery is also excellent in listening to feedback on behaviour and activities that are happening at home and following through while there at the nursery.

Thank you for your fantastic feedback. We are glad you choose Happy Stars to send both your little ones to, they both have and are doing extremely well. Thank You so much for all your support.

Happy Stars Day Nursery is a fantastic nursery. Our son started age 3 and has been there for almost a year now. In that time we have watched his social, and verbal skills, and imaginative play transform. He very clearly enjoys his time at Happy Stars and has really bonded with the staff too.

I am also very impressed with the effort that the nursery and staff make to ensure a diverse learning environment through theme weeks (e.g. Rhyme week) and creating ever-changing play zones for the children to interact with. They also host stay and play events for the parents so that you get to see your child in their daily environment. Furthermore, they really go over and above when hosting one-off events, e.g. Halloween where all the staff dressed up with the children, the nursery was decorated and all events (painting and cooking, etc) were Halloween themed.

We are very pleased we found Happy Stars!

Thank you so much for your kind words, it is a pleasure to be able to have both of your children attend Happy Stars over the years. Myself and the staff would like to thank you for all your support you have given to the nursery over the years.

My twin boys love going to Happy Stars! It's a wonderful environment for them to learn and develop - the staff are caring and attentive to individual needs and provide stimulating and fun activities for the children. The resources provided are varied and aimed at supporting learning and the nursery engages parents very effectively, including through a dedicated website and daily contact. The food provided is delicious and carefully planned to support nutrition and the children are encouraged to help themselves and develop their independence. A wonderful nursery - I'm so happy my boys get to go there.

Thank- you so much for your wonderful review, It is a pleasure to have the boys at Happy Stars, they have settled amazing quickly. It is a delight to have the boys as our first set of twins in Happy Stars

I cannot praise Happy Stars enough. I was nervous about sending our one-year-old daughter into a nursery environment, but all the staff were so caring and diligent. Now she loves it and loves all the staff. All the staff are so kind, fun and caring and everyone is very involved including the owner and the cook. Kindness, safety, and fun - what more could a parent ask for.

Thank you for your lovely review, it is a pleasure to have number 2 in Happy Stars, she is such a character and full of energy keeping the happy Stars team completely entertained every day.

Our son has been attending Happy Stars for 4 months now and we are extremely happy with the nursery so far. The staff are all so caring and really seem to have bonded with our little boy. There are always lots of different stimulating activities on offer and the outside area is brilliant for a London nursery where outdoor space is often limited. Every day when I come to collect him he is doing something different, and he always has a smile on his face.

I am continually impressed by the level of detail the staff give me about his day - they always know exactly what he has eaten, how long he slept for, which new words he has said or activities he has tried. It really shows how much attention they pay to each child.

We are so pleased we chose Happy Stars and would wholeheartedly recommend them.

Thank you for your lovely review, we are really glad you chose Happy Stars for your little man to attend, he is developing so rapidly and has definitely made Happy Stars his second home. It is great to hear that the feedback given at the end of the day is beneficial. Thank you for your continuous support.

My son has attended Happy Stars Day Nursery since the age of 1, he is very happy and enjoys going to nursery. His language, communication, awareness and behaviour is impressive and continues to improve, I feel that the values and education at Happy Stars have helped with these developments.
As a parent I can say that the partnership with the nursery/management team has been fantastic, the staff are excellent in terms of communication and interaction with the children and I feel this is a safe environment for my son.
I would recommend this nursery to parents /guardians.

Awesome nursery and staff. They do lots of activities with the children and keep us up to date all the time with emails and newsletters. They ensure to take photos of the kids regularly and only parents can see these. There are regular parent updates and even celebratory events when parents can come to the nursery and join in the fun.
They take the kids out regularly on nearby day trips to a local supermarket, parks, post office etc and teach the kids about day to day life. I couldn't be happier with the nursery and the staff- am really glad we are sending our child here!

Thank you so much for your lovely review, We are very happy that the service we are providing for your family is Awesome - Happy Stars are overwhelmed by the huge support your family shows us every day.

My little girl has been attending Happy Stars for almost two years and has loved every moment of it. The staff are thoughtful and caring and make a real effort to build a relationship with each child. Every day has a variety of activities to keep her interested and stimulated. I also think it is great that they build activities around different religious and other festivals that take place throughout the year - the diversity of interests and backgrounds is, in my opinion, helping to raise a very well rounded little girl. They also get parents involved, even hosting a Father's Day breakfast which was very well received.

Food is cooked freshly on-site and includes a broad range of options. They have a wonderful outside area which the kids all love.

I feel very lucky that my little boy also has a place and will be starting shortly and I can't recommend it highly enough to people.

Everyone there should be very proud of the work they do and making it such a special place. Well done!

It was also lovely having Mummy in today, making some wonderful Banana and Blueberry Muffins, that went down a treat with all the children today. - Thank you for your great support.

My son joined the nursery in November 2015, since joining he has learned so much. The staff are friendly, efficient and always helpful. I would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone. They are always doing lots of activities and crafts with the children and are so kind. When I go to collect my little boy he never wants to leave because he has so much fun there.

Thanks for your lovely review - your little man is part of the Happy Stars team and will be deeply missed when he goes to big school. Thank you so much for all your support.

I have nothing but good comments to say with regards to Happy Stars nursery. I have a child who currently attends the nursery but a few years ago my daughter also attended. I was familiar with the nursery and extremely happy with all the staff and felt my child would be well looked after and safe therefore I did not want to send him to another nursery. There are various activities he is involved in throughout the day and regularly comes home with drawings/objects he has been involved in making. I am given an update when I arrive to collect him on how his day has gone which is useful but also observe him myself and can tell he is thoroughly happy and always has a big smile on his face. Throughout the year various plays are put on and the children will get dressed up which is very entertaining and lovely to see all the kids involved in.

Thanks You Farina - It lovely to have number 2 in the setting and for your continuous support towards the nursery.

I couldn't have dreamed of a better place for my children than Happy Stars Day Nursery! All of my 3 children have been attending Happy Stars (the oldest daughter starting at Happy Stars in October 2008) and they all were (and are) very, very happy there. The care is of exceptional standards with professional, friendly and always welcoming staff. Children get a chance to engage in a wide range of activities, which enhance their learning experiences and they take parts in various trips i.e. to library, local shops or caf├ęs and even fire station (so they get to know local environment too). Nursery also works closely with parents, keeping us updated of everything that's going on in this busy nursery. Parents do get a chance to get involved in the life of the nursery, with open/activity mornings, fetes or special events often organised, which creates 'family' like atmosphere. Children do learn a lot at happy stars, I can see great progress in their social, physical and emotional development

It has been such a pleasure looking after your three little ones/ bigger one now. We have all enjoyed watching them grow in characters. Thank- you for all your support over the last 8 years.

My son has loved his time at happy stars, he barely looks back when we drop him off in the morning. I have always felt confident that he is safe and well looked after during the time he is there. The staff are caring and have built a strong relationship with my son. Since starting nursery my son has made great progress with his independence and social skills. He has participated in a range of activities and has already been on a few trips. We have really appreciated all the hard work the nursery does, making my return back to work so much easier. I would highly recommend this nursery.

Thank you very much for your lovely review, the staff and myself are glad you are happy with the services we offer.

It's one of the best things I've ever done choosing the above nursery for my child to attend. I have seen my daughter grow and develop so much more than those children that stay at home. Till this day my daughter surprises me and continues to. I have seen her knowledge and skills grow in areas which most nurseries would not touch upon, e.g numbers, alphabets and general activities, i.e cooking, modelling, acting etc. The nursery not only fits into my working lifestyle, but I have the peace of mind that my child is in safe hands. Thanks to a nursery like this that has made our life easy.

I can not recommend this nursery enough. My daughter loves going to nursery and skips in every morning with a massive smile on her face, what more can you ask for? She has an excellent bond with her key worker and all the staff are thoughtful, kind, gentle, and constantly amaze me with their love and patience for all the children. My daughter enjoys lovely food throughout the day and comes home exhausted after an action packed day. The staff communicate excellently and activities are organised to fit in with her current interests and are constantly changing. We are very very happy.

Happy Stars is the most organised, friendly and educational nursery I have come across. Although the staff place great emphasis on preparing the children for big school by integrating uniforms, school bags and weekend home activities, the children are never pressured but constantly encouraged. The staff are genuinely happy, polite and show how much they love the children. The management of the nursery is exceptional - extremely well-organised. The parents are encouraged to participate and communicate with the staff and are always kept informed. Excellent processes and due diligence. Truly exceptional and we feel so lucky to have our daughter there.

Happy Stars Day Nursery is a fantastic establishment which has created a great foundation for my son to start his early years. Since he started from the age of 1+, his development has been remarkable, it's all thanks to the hard work, dedication and support of my sons key workers and the Manager.

The nursery provide us consistent weekly feedback on his progress and development, detailing activities/interests he enjoys.

Our son looks forward to going to nursery and tells us all about his day each evening which is a great satisfaction to have as a parent, we feel that happy stars provides us and my son a safe environment to enjoy his early years.

Thank you Happy Stars!!

Thank you very much for your lovely review, the staff and myself are glad you are happy with the services we offer.

From the first moment that I visited this nursery (and I had visited quite a few other nurseries in the area), I liked it straight away and knew that this is where I wanted my then 2 year old son to attend. It has a warm, nurturing and very friendly atmosphere, with a fantastic outdoor play area which is always open to the children all year round (so they get plenty of fresh air and exercise). It's also great that the food the children eat is freshly prepared and cooked on the premises every day there. The staff are absolutely lovely and very dedicated. I loved their 'settling-in' method, whereby two of the nursery staff visited my son at home just before he started. This was done to familiarise my son with the staff there and facilitate his settling in during the first week, and I think this really helped him (and me!). My son has been there for almost a year now and is very happy there. I would definitely recommend this nursery.

Happy Stars is a great nursery that my second daughter is currently attending. All the teachers are very attentive and caring to my daughter's needs. My first daughter also attended the nursery about 4 years ago and the nursery have maintained the same very high standard. I have and would easily recommend Happy Stars to anyone.

I am so pleased with Happy Stars Day Nursery. My daughter has been attending for over a year now and is very happy at this setting. The staff provide variety in the activities and are attentive to the needs of all children. They celebrate all cultures and help prepare children for school. I am particularly pleased with the meals provided: freshly cooked every day and a changing menu. The staff are very good at communicating with parents through their website, verbal feedback and a weekly diary. I am very pleased with my choice of nursery. My daughter is great at telling me about her day and is a "teacher" when she comes home. I know from this she enjoys her time there.

From the moment we entered Happy Stars we knew it was a nursery that we could trust to take care and nurture our son. It has a warm atmosphere and all of the staff evoke love and dedication to the children. It has a wide range of activities and facilities to stimulate, and healthy home cooked meals. Our son runs in with excitement when we drop him off in the mornings.

We could not have been happier with Happy Stars, who provided excellent care for our child. The manager and all staff are highly professional, caring and approachable. The quality of the learning environment and activities is superb, and staff always welcome children's views and ideas and encourage children to develop their interests. The nursery has a wonderful outdoor space , and the whole nursery environment is stimulating and creatively arranged. Communication with parents is very strong, and we always had a clear sense of how our child was getting on, and our input was listened to. Our son always came home smiling and happy, and his confidence grew enormously during his time at Happy Stars.

A very warm environment where the children are extremely happy to be. The staff are always polite and take the time to be informative about the day the children have had. The nursery is run efficiently and I believe it is good value for money.
